Today’s organisations rely on their staff, both collectively and individually, to meet rapidly evolving demands and challenges. Coaches support, challenge and empower others within their organisations. Historically, the term ‘coach’ migrated from describing horse-drawn vehicles to also mean advising or instructing others. In the 1830s, ‘coach’ was Oxford University slang for tutors who helped to ‘carry’ students through their exams. Think of the modern interpretation as a metaphor of coaches helping to move others from where they currently are to where they want to be.
This minicourse will introduce students to the coaching skills you'll need to assist others to reach their goals. Students will learn how to plan, implement and evaluate coaching conversations within their professional context. With these skills, students will also learn how to build a positive culture at work through coaching conversations.
Please be advised that this minicourse is made up of four parts please see EDU8400 for the full course specification.
