Introduction to Coaching

‘Getting stuck is not a problem, staying stuck is…’

Why attend the course?
The Vision for Learning one-day Coaching Skills programme develops one to one coaching skills. Coaching Skills will be of professional value to anyone who wants to improve the quality of the support they offer others. This course will help you to work with people to overcome their blocks and work with the grain of their own motivators. You will also gain the essential grounding to progress to the advanced coaching programme. Benefits of attending include:

• Developing practical coaching skills
• A deeper understanding of what drives people towards success and what holds them back
• Practical approaches to unblock negative attitudes and promote positive thinking
• A deeper insight into the use of listening skills
• Knowing when to question and when to be silent
• Learning how to better manage internal thought patterns and habits of mind for coaching

What will you learn on the coaching programme?
You will learn and develop key knowledge and skills for promoting change in others, including:

• What is coaching?
• The difference between coaching and other helping processes
• The essential dispositions of an effective coach
• How to establish and maintain rapport
• Essential listening skills
• Key questioning tools for coaches
• How to ask the right questions and what to do when people get stuck
• How to structure coaching
• How to coach in a hurry

The programme draws from NLP, Sports Performance Psychology and Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy. The programme provides you with simple models and techniques that improve motivation and broker success.

How is the course structured?
The Programme is closely focused on promoting independent thinking and problem-solving in others. Coaching techniques are demonstrated and developed through practical activities. The programme content is backed by the relevant coaching theory. Together this offers you the opportunity to understand the psychology of motivation and develop the practical skills of coaching.
Delegates learn to use a simple, but effective core coaching model. There are dozens of great coaching tips from an expert coach at every step of the way.

Who leads the programme?
The one-day Coaching Skills Programme is designed and delivered by Will Thomas. Will is a highly experienced Performance Coach and trainer. He works with individuals from school age to old age. A Marks and Spencer Personnel manager from University, Will moved into education and became Head of Faculty in a large comprehensive school, he has used coaching extensively to enable people to maximise performance and overcome personal barriers to success. Will is co-author of the book Coaching Solutions and author of The Coaching Solutions Resource Book.

What if I attend?
You’ll further develop your skills and knowledge in multiple ways. Just imagine having the confidence to respond positively and effectively in any situation, and having the next level of linguistic tools to promote change in others. Consider the positive impact on your work, your life and those you come into contact with you.
