With an internal coaching program, what training makes sense for the coaches?
Professional coach training programs ideally address the Core Competencies as identified by the International Coach Federation. A blog series on these competencies was published previously and is available at http://blog.centerforcoachingcertification.com/ctl/all-posts/.
Internal coach training programs serve as professional development and are often a component of leadership training.
Coach training generally includes:
How coaching is different
Ethics (tailor this section with the company ethics)
Understanding and Working with Different Personalities
Listening Skills, Assertive Communication Skills, Effective Questioning Techniques
Neuro-Linguistics (the influence of language on motivation and focus)
Step-by-step Hands-on Coaching for Sessions 1 through 4 with Trainer Supervision
Unique programs or training development is available on request.
Coach-specific training applies the information specifically to the coaching process. The learning and application of information in a coach-specific training is unique to this process; it is important that the trainer have coaching experience in addition to training expertise.
The benefits of this training go far beyond enhancing the success of a coaching program. Learning the people skills and communication skills through coach training increases the ability of a leader, manager, or supervisor to engage and motivate.
