An Introduction to Coaching Workshop

The Seven Steps to Understanding Coaching


A one-day workshop where you can discover the truth about coaching by a trained experts; the incredible difference that great coaching can bring about in your performance at home and at work; whether coaching is right for you and your company; and how to make the decision to hire a coach. You will have the chance to be coached yourself so you don't just have to take my word about the impact of coaching .. you can know for yourself!

Here are the seven steps that you will discover throughout the day

Coaching defined ... what exactly is coaching?

Learn the latest definitions of coaching, so that you understand EXACTLY how coaching differs from other helping professions. You will discover that coaching is far more than a conversation; it's a carefully crafted set of strategies created to enable the client to realise their true potential by freeing them from doubt and fear and finding powerful steps forward. You will leave the day understanding exactly WHY and HOW coaching works. Is it psychology, NLP or something else? You will have your questions answered. This is a great place to start.

The Potential of Coaching ... the results you can expect

This step covers the empirical evidence that coaching is a practical solution to people's development challenges and why so many people are booking personal coaching sessions to get the most out of life. Why is it so effective and how do we know that it works? Who has achieved what through coaching? Why do organisations spend hundreds of thousands of pounds on coaching programs for staff?

Who hires a coach?

You will understand why initials and companies are attracted to coaching and the top twenty reasons why someone hires a coach. Is it for good people who want to be great? You will be amazed at the variety of those who come away for coaching and the versatility of coaching as a tool for development. You will go away from the day clear about the benefits of hiring a coach who is providing top quality coaching.

Experience coaching yourself

It is not until you have experienced coaching first-hand that you will appreciate the impact it can have. You will have a few moments to work under the guidance of a experienced coach asking you some powerful and purposeful questions. You will be coached on a current issue for you as part of the group. The coach will not know your issue and neither will anyone else! This the moment when even the most hardened cynic starts to see the effectiveness of coaching techniques. This practical demonstration is a highlight to the day as it suddenly turns a theoretical subject into EXACTLY what it should be - a practical skill that works with anyone, anywhere, in any country of the world.

Creating a compelling future for yourself

You will discover the powerful changes to your happiness in life and sense of personal control when you experience setting goals for yourself. Not just asking the question, "Where would you like to be in 3 years?" but actually devising a set of actions to take you closer to your life ambitions day by day. This empowering feeling will last a lifetime as your life turns from generalities and wishes to specifics an achievements. This professional group coaching from me is worth many, many times the price of admission. You will use the 'Wheel of Life' exercise to help you identify the current priorities in your life and career and identify actions to get you moving forward with enthusiasm and at pace.

Overcoming your barriers

You will find these final two steps to be the most important of all: overcoming limiting beliefs and finding the strengths in yourself to make you an unstoppable force in your own life. You will learn why we believe the things we believe, and what holds us back from being the kind of person we long to be. You will place the Comfort Zone game to identify the specific barriers to your progress and to turn those stumbling blocks into stepping stones to move forward.

Maximising your potential

You will be shown how to identify the strengths in yourself, acknowledge them, develop them and appreciate them. When you know where your strengths are, you become unstoppable in your life mission. These two last coaching principles will help you understand so clearly the direct benefits of coaching and of being coached.

This day is perfect for you if you are considering hiring a coach for yourself on a personal level or if you are researching hiring a coach for your company. You will leave will a very clear understanding of what coaching is and why it works and you will see the benefits of hiring a Licensed Trainer to run this workshop.
