COACHING TECHNIQUES

Challenge

Many organisations choose to assign employees to a coach, mentor or buddy from a higher job group. Such a colleague often knows exactly how things work, but often still needs support when it comes to coaching.

Coaching conversations are often too much focused on the content instead of the development of the coachee. There is often too little questioning and our internal 'advice monster' quickly comes into play. And that's a shame, because people learn more when they come to insights theirselves.

In a good coaching session, the coachee is working hardest. The coach asks open questions, recognises patterns and continues to ask questions about the emotional world of the coachee. Creating safety is key here. This is even more important online.

 

This program provides a solid foundation. After this program, the participants are able to independently conduct successful coaching conversations.
