Live Training Accelerator Session
As your coaching skills develop and you gain more and more practical experience, the Diploma in Personal Performance Coaching expands your existing knowledge with some crucial new tools that can enhance the coaching relationship both for you and for your clients.
A key starting point for any coach/client interaction is the need to build rapport. If you can successfully do that, creating an attentive and focused environment for the coaching session, and establishing your role as a trusted individual within the client’s life, your sessions have a real springboard to success.
The skills considered in “Empowering the Coaching Relationship” go beyond the practicalities of the GROW model: this is not about what you will do, but how you will go about doing it. So key skills here are the ability to express empathy, and how to actively listen and respond in a non-judgmental manner.
During this training you will also think about challenging clients and helping them to develop a greater awareness of themselves and their actions. You will also look at the technique of reframing – a vital tool for showing the client a whole new perspective.
Emotional clients can be a major challenge for coaches no matter how experienced. As you coach them though some key life challenges it is not surprising that emotions are stirred – and dealing with that is crucial. You will learn some vital techniques for dealing with client’s emotions, and the importance of keeping control of your coaching sessions.
