Multi Class Course
Esteemed Coach John Wooden would say: “Success comes from knowing that you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming.” In order to achieve success with your team member, it is important to know the basics of coaching and ways to help your team members achieve their 'best.'
In this course we will go over the basics of coaching, fatal flaws to avoid as a coach and have the opportunity to practice the skills in a safe, supported classroom space. The coaching basics will come from a bespoke design founded from the principles of the OSKAR model and Michael Fullan's Results Coaching framework. Using this blended design, Mara the teacher has had a lot of success with her team members in the past and believes that the bespoke framework can help others in their coaching capacity.
What to expect
Lesson 1: We will do some ice breakers to get to know and build trust with the cohort. We will then go over each of the phases that take place in a successful coaching model and highlight where the fatal flaws occur.
Lesson 2: Time to practice- Mara will demonstrate a coaching session and then participants will partner off to try it. Afterwards, participants will be invited to try a session in the workplace and be ready to report back in Lesson 3.
Lesson 3: Time to practice and reflect- We will learn about the challenges around implementation and if time permits to have a final practice to help shore up one's confidence in coaching.
It is important for this course that participants have a quiet place to engage with the online discussion. Each session will be interactive and best for participants to have cameras and mics on. Between lessons 2 and 3 it would be helpful that participants have an opportunity to trial the coaching techniques learned.
By the end of the three sessions, participants will have the tools to coach their direct reports or others in their organisation.

Each Learned.Live teacher is awarded a 4 star review for every one of their courses we have approved, in line with our assessment. This is why some teachers will display more than one 4 star review from Learned.Live if they have had multiple courses rigorously assessed by our team. We would not approve a course application if we did not feel it warranted a default 4 star review. Teacher star ratings are an average of each of their courses star ratings and will become modified as more students review their course(s) over time
