Express Coaching Workshops – Coaching CPD

Posted by: Tasmin Richardson - Posted on:

About the session:

This will explore Express Coaching from the perspective of the coach: building an understanding of how to be impactful as a coach in a time-limited, outcome focused coaching session.

Calibrating your practice to supporting a coachee in potentially one standalone session can be challenging. Overcoming some of the potential barriers, natural preference and indeed bias to practicing in longer term coaching relationships will be key.

We will explore the practicalities of contracting effectively to build rapport and trust quickly and then practice in an agile way along the spectrum of coaching to best meet the needs of the coachee.

The session will build upon your current knowledge and experience whilst revisiting coaching models, tools and techniques to build confidence in your practice in a short-term coaching relationship. You can expect a highly interactive session with plenty of opportunity to practice your coaching skills.

This workshop will:

  • Allow coaches to develop skills to create psychological safety and build trust quickly with their coachee
  • Encourage participants to reflect and consider their practice in person-centred & agile coaching
  • Support coaches to confidently contract, undertake goal setting and manage the relationship within the boundaries of the coaching contract within a single session, or contract for up to 3 sessions
  • Provide coaches with the opportunity to experience, and practice delivering an express coaching session
