Coaching Essentials is a two-days workshop where you’ll learn core coaching skills in alignment with NVC that you can start using right away. Coaching Essentials is the introductory module to the Coaching for Transformation certification program run by Leadership That Works.

Coaching Essentials is an experiential training experience, packed with activities, demonstrations and practice. This program provides an ideal opportunity to study and learn the application of foundational coaching skills without the commitment of a full certification program. If you decide to pursue certification, you can apply both your Coaching Essentials training hours and tuition toward the Coaching for Transformation certification program.

Learning Objectives

  • Embody the mindset of coaching
  • Ask empowering questions that create clarity, possibility and new learning
  • Differentiate between three levels of listening
  • Structure coaching sessions using the GROW model
  • Hold attention on what is important and leave responsibility for action to the client

Who is this for?

Basically, it is for everybody who is dreaming of the more beautiful world that our hearts know is possible. What you learn can be applied in your parenting, your relationships with family and colleagues and to deepen your self connection.

Coaching Essentials is an ideal choice if you are curious about pursuing a coaching career. Coaching Essentials can be a first step toward becoming a Certified Professional Coach, giving you the opportunity to “test drive” the training before deciding if you want to continue with the full certification training.

You will also see an immediate benefit of applying a coach’s approach in your current work, making Coaching Essentials a valuable investment in your personal and professional development. You will renew your confidence as a change agent as you invite people to take action that reflects their power, creativity and authenticity.
