Coaching Fundamentals - the first module focuses on developing coaching skills and techniques, using models to support practice, and discusses ethical and professional issues. We will look at coaching mind-set, relationships and setting an effective coaching environment. There is a strong focus on developing skills and so a portfolio of evidence including critical self-reflection and analysis is a core component of this part of the course.
Coaching Exploration and Discovery - This module explores human psychology and its relevance to coaching. It will cover psychological approaches to coaching, personality theory and neuroscience. We will also explore creative coaching interventions to elicit further self-discovery. This module addresses the impact of change, stress and the importance of resilience, and explores the attributes of different coaching approaches.
Organisational Coaching - This module covers the potential organisational applications of coaching and developing as a professional coach. It covers developing a coaching practice, which includes contracting, ethics, boundaries, stakeholder management and ROI/ROE. The focus of this module is on the realities and integration of coaching in action. Additionally it covers professional accreditation and continued professional development.
