Coaching is a non psycho-therapeutic ongoing interaction between the coach and the client/coachee that helps the client/coachee to produce results and reach goals in their personal and professional lives. The coach facilitates change through verbal and non-verbal communication (e.g. questions, reflections, explanations, stories, metaphors, tasks, guiding attention, exercises, etc.) Through the process of coaching, the client/coachee deepens its learning, improves its performance, and enhances its quality of life.
The coaching training is highly practical with plenty of coaching practise and exercises. The participant is urged to reflect its own communication, give feedback to peers, provide supervision sessions for peers, and use own cases and real life cases to enhance its coaching abilities. The training is also application and experience focused, spanning the bandwidth of coaching and provides examples of coaching cases and typical problems.
