April 8, 2021 @ 18:00 - 19:30 CDT
An event every week that begins at 18:00 on Thursday, repeating until June 25, 2021
(This is the first course in my coach training program. Learn more at https://higheredcoaches.com.)
We begin our training with the logistical elements of coaching that will ensure that your coaching agreements and sessions run smoothly. Having a solid understanding of these logistics will not only make you a more effective coach, but will also help you create effective marketing materials about your services that will attract potential clients. Also, by getting some of these logistics settled and routinized, your attention can be devoted to the coaching of your clients.
There are several elements of the coaching session structure that will remain the same no matter what kinds of clients you are working with. In the latter half of this training, you will learn about these elements and the different session components that you will want to build into each meeting with your clients. Having structure for your coaching sessions will allow for the goals and objectives for each session to be clear to you and to your client. The course creation concept of backward design is used; concepts such as setting shared goals, defining measurable objectives, and creating accountability systems to check that goals are being met.
