About Coaching: A Leadership Skill

Course Outline


You will spend the first part of the day getting to know participants and discussing what will take place during the workshop. Students will also have an opportunity to identify their personal learning objectives.

  • Defining Coaching
    • The first part of the morning will be spent exploring what coaching means (in general and to participants), reviewing coaching skills, and evaluating the pre-assignment.
  • Interpersonal Communication Skills
    • Communicating well is a key aspect of successful coaching. During this session, participants will explore different communication skills and create an action plan.
  • Self-Disclosure
    • Joe Luft and Harry Ingham developed the Johari windows concept, a way of looking at our self-awareness and our ability to ask feedback of others. This session will look at the window and examine how we can use it when coaching.
