"The next best thing to being wise oneself is to live in a circle of those who are." C.S. Lewis
Most commercially successful coaches love to work with groups and teams—and they’re good at it.
In this course, launching again in September 2012, we will talk about the “bones” of doing this well as you build your practice. As usual, you will be challenged to learn by doing.
Instruction will focus on the systemic and organizational work of coaching groups and teams. Participants will be asked to launch their own work with a group or a team during the course of the class, so we will allocate time for case consultation, mentor coaching and review of core competencies.
Our learning goals and outcomes include:
A solid overview of Systems Theory / Executive Coaching
Challenge and support to connect your personal strengths and style to your best personal ways of being accessible and responsive to your audience and "ideal clients"
Instruction in the skills, structures and modalities that are most useful in forming and working effectively with both existing teams and newly-formed groups
On-going mentor coaching, support and accountability as you learn
This module meets one Saturday morning per month for seven months, from 9:00am until noon. Each meeting will include theory, practice, support, accountabilities and mentorcoaching.
This Module is open to ten members. Participants in any cohort of the SeattleCoach Training Program have until Mid-August to sign up. After that, coaches who have trained elsewhere will be invited to join us.
This training has been approved for twenty-seven hours of "coach-specific training" by the International Coach Federation (for use in credentialing or continuing education). These hours will not expire.
