An experienced facilitator is always on hand to answer your questions
It’s right for you if: You want a simple and effective kit that helps managers to become more effective coaches.
What’s included: An MTa holdall containing a set of robust components, facilitator’s overview and summary of each activity, along with hard-wearing and reusable participant and observer briefs, and learning transfer documentation including questionnaires.
When to use it: When you need to help a group of managers to explore and develop practical, day to day coaching skills for use in the workplace.
A diagnostic questionnaire sets the tone and gets participants thinking about their current understanding of coaching. What is it? What are the pros and cons of a coaching approach? And perhaps most challenging: where are the boundaries of their current coaching competencies?
Managers often employ a directive management style to ‘get the job done’, but is this really the best way to do things? This stage invites reflection on the benefits of investing more time in people. By exploring current habits, participants can arrive at some uncomfortable realisations to build on later.
This stage allows groups to hone in on their perceived coaching abilities, and the principles of effective coaching in action. Which skills need to be used more (or less) to foster success? Participants are encouraged to coach – and to critique! – each other, laying the groundwork for reflection.
Here participants are tasked with adopting an approach consistent with the basic principles of effective coaching, including identifying, generating, and making use of opportunities. This highlights the contrast between these principles and those used in earlier stages in a very real way.
Here participants develop plans for applying their new learnings in the workplace, with specific prompts on coaching less tangible skills like communication or leadership. This stage also adopts the activity-followed-by-review structure to allow lasting, actionable change to take place.
In part 2 participants learn how to coach others in developing less tangible skills, including helping others to develop ideas and concepts. The session begins with small group structured reviews of personal progress to date and establishing and agreeing personal learning objectives, which are then addressed through small group activities designed to involve everyone as the coach, the coached or the observer.
