Organizations may book this program for one or more cohorts of 4-6 participants whose roles involve supporting others' development using coaching conversations (HR personnel, managers, senior leaders, etc.).
The participants immerse in an active exploration of coaching conversations. As part of a small group, they apply sound design principles to planning developmental conversations, practice active listening, and share perspectives. This course offers a practical and playful approach to finding one's support style, and discovering ways to continue refining and advancing it.
Over four weeks, participants engage in self-directed study, reflection, setting intentions, and coaching conversation practice. The opportunities to practice aspects of coaching in a small peer group takes place in 'live' Zoom sessions in which participants take turns as coach, coachee and observer, followed by sharing observations and perspectives. These 'live' sessions are scheduled one week apart to give participants the time to reflect on each coaching conversation practice, consider peer feedback, and revisit their notes (journal) as they plan and prepare for their next coaching conversation practice.
By engaging participants with a range of experiences in supporting others' development, this course goes beyond the foundational principles of effective coaching conversations. Participants tend to find that the course brings them inspiration and sparks their curiosity, promoting joy in continuing to explore, reflect, and evolve their practice as leaders in their area of work for years to come.
