CPD-0241 – Coaching 4: Practicum (CPD-0241_COACH4)

Coaching 4: Practicum

Coaching skills take time to develop. Our natural tendency when supporting the professional growth of an employee is to give advice and suggest strategies for a solution to a particular challenge. Coaching differs from advising. It involves specific techniques to highlight employees’ knowledge and perspectives in ways that help them gain clarity, find relevance, and make powerful and productive choices that connect to their intrinsic motivation.

The key to effective coaching is to leverage specific techniques to help your employee gain clarity, find relevance, and make powerful and productive choices that connect to their intrinsic motivation. In this culminating session for the Coaching Skills Non-Credit Certificate program, you’ll continue to develop coaching skills related to relevant questioning techniques, building accountability, and managing resistance. Deepen your ability to build rapport for transformation and create alignment between goals, values, and actions. Role playing, interactive videos, triad sessions, and a large group coaching activity will give you additional hands-on experience to practice and improve your coaching skills.
