Creating A Coaching Ethos

A coaching mentality encourages solution focused thinking to become automatic. When faced with a challenge your staff members will immediately begin by asking themselves what they want the next step to be, rather than focusing on what’s not currently working.

Adopting a coaching approach is also a great way to help the young people in your charge find their purpose, direction and confidence. Coaching is a fantastic empowering tool that can change ‘tomorrow’s adults’ lives!

My Coaching INSET is a full day of interactive training and covers:

  • What coaching is, what it isn’t and when best to use it
  • Delivery of a group coaching session – this allows your staff first hand experience of coaching, and illustrates what a session of dedicated coaching can achieve.
  • What the fundamentals of coaching are and the skills required e.g. rapport building, active listening and solution focused questioning
  • The GROW model of coaching – an easy to use process that teachers can employ effectively to coach each other, their students or themselves
  • Exploration of Values and how they affect behaviour and actions
  • Understanding the power and impact of Beliefs on achieving goals
  • Q and A – to address the questions that teachers invariably have about coaching
  • Goal setting tools and when to use them

The Benefits

Your staff will be able to:

  • Really understand what coaching is and its practical application
  • Align their own professional objectives with the goals of your school
  • Effect rapid change in levels of accountability and performance, on a personal and departmental level

Further Information
