Express Coaching Sessions

At its purest, coaching is the art of truly listening and asking questions that help the coachee generate insights and new perspectives to help empower them and move forward in a positive way. This can be achieved in a short space of time in a confidential environment where it feels safe to share vulnerabilities and issues that might otherwise inhibit progress.

We are working with coaches from within the region, who have undertaken Express Coaching training to support health and care colleagues working across the South West. They will provide focused, short-term support in the form of one virtual coaching session.

This workshop 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.
