This module will lay the foundations for you to become a truly exceptional Post Graduate Masters level Accredited Coach whether you choose to work within an organisation or as a Personal Coach. In order for you to achieve this outcome it is important for you to understand how coaching came into being and how it has evolved from its base in psychology and how those psychological techniques have been adapted and nurtured into the powerful tools we use today within the coaching environment.
The coaching environment is one of trust, confidentiality, good rapport and mutual respect. It is supported by a code of ethics which we all as professional coaches abide by and this is explored in detail within this module.
You will begin to understand how our personality and belief systems cause us how to think the way we do and once you understand this you will be able to create the necessary rapport, listening and questioning techniques to enable your clients to understand and accept those areas in which change is needed to create successful outcomes.
As a Coach you will begin by using incisive questioning techniques to quickly understand and identify those areas which are causing client’s uncertainty whether that is in their business or personal life.
Coaches, unlike therapists do not prescribe solutions. The fundamental premise within the coaching environment, is that “The Client has the Solution”, and we as coaches through our skills and techniques allow the client to find their “Solutions” to their particular issues. It is these issues which are preventing change and allowing them to move on from where they are, too where they need to be.
Live working demonstrations will be carried out on all of the areas covered within the modules. You will then begin working in a supervised, secure environment with your fellow delegates, as a Coach, Coachee and Observer on all the techniques demonstrated in order that objective feedback can be sought and given to accelerate the learning process.
Because of the new found knowledge and skill levels you attain, you will begin to look at yourself, family members, friends and work colleagues in a new light. You will gain an insight into your own and their particular belief systems and begin to understand why they think, act and behave the way they do.
This Module builds on all the fundamental new learning patterns and experiences you have gained from Module 1 and we will recap and discuss these patterns which are now becoming automatic within your own thinking processes.
We can now begin the process of explaining and demonstrating all the tools you can use within the coaching environment. Not only will we explain what to do, we will show you how to do it, and then once again you will practise how to do it in a safe supervised manner.
You will become fully conversant with all the techniques and tools used by the very best Coaches including Motivation and Visualisation Techniques, Belief Change Patterns, Goal Setting, the use of Hypnotic Language Patterns and NLP Techniques. These techniques and many others will be in evidence, demonstrated and practiced throughout this module.
We place great emphasis on the need for feedback within these supervised practice sessions as this will help to speed the learning process.
You can now begin to practice and combine the use of these tools with the learning acquired on taught module one. Not only will you see the effects within the coaching environment, you will notice how your increasing use of these tools in your everyday life will influence your family, friends and work colleagues for their benefit.
