Course Description

This 2-day intensive training in non-directive coaching aims to equip the participants with the necessary mindset and skills in order to effectively develop others as active-learning leaders. Active-learning leaders are those who are intentionally engaged in their development process and intent on helping to achieve organizational progress and success.

Non-directive coaching has become a powerful leadership development tool. Its effectiveness has prompted some to call it a key element in training emerging leaders. Dr. Peter Hawkins, Professor of Leadership at Henley Business School, states, “Coaching has become the most popular approach to leadership development in the 21st century.” Those who master this skill are better prepared to develop leaders. 

After this 2-day workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Learn a 5-step approach to non-directive coaching.
  • Listen attentively to the ideas of others.
  • Ask more powerful questions that encourage a change in thinking.
  • Follow-up on Action Steps for accountability and learning.
  • Generate feedback that avoids defensiveness.
  • Integrate coaching skills into their leadership roles.
  • Contribute to institutional approaches to developing personnel.

This course uses the COACH model of leadership development. It presents a five-step process of Connect – Outcome – Awareness – Course – Highlights that guides a leader along a path to life-change. Participants will learn skills that help the coachee identify developmental areas, increase self-awareness, and formulate Action Steps through actual coaching opportunities within the class time. A special goal of this course is to prepare participants for informal and formal coaching experiences.

This course is offered with distinct modules designed for various audiences. The three modules presently in place provide contextualized training for uniformed services, business, and educational settings. 

Upon completion of the course, participants receive Certificates of Participation as a record of their achievements.
