I have just had the privilege to design and deliver some new bespoke training – How to Become an Effective Coach, or as I have termed it having a ‘Coach Approach’.
This pioneering approach is here to stay so if you’re a support worker or volunteer this training would definitely benefit you!
The Skills and Training Needed to become and Effective Coach
The training session will teach individuals coaching skills and how to have a ‘coach approach’, therefore supporting all persons (including Young People) in their learning and personal development.
We understand that the most important attribute of any coach is that they want to support the person or people they are coaching to learn. A good coach doesn’t see themselves as an expert able to fix all problems and having all the answers – instead, they see themselves as supporting the process of learning itself.
To Become an effective coach, you should know what an effective coach does
Coaches take an “Ask vs Tell” approach
Don’t tell the person (s) what to do, instead ask powerful questions. This allows them to create their own solutions. When they go through the thought process to get to resolution, they are much more willing to engage — it’s their idea!
Coaches focus on the Person vs the Task
Remember, it’s about their development.
Coaching is not about “fixing” anyone
Again, it’s about their development and facilitating the learning process.
Coaches set up a clear accountability structure for action and outcomes
They support the person focus on achieving their desired goals.
Coaching is something that can/should happen as needed
As in “in-the-moment”, which is the best way for learning to occur.
