Ran my final course for 2009 last week. As is now customary I post here the participants’ learning objectives with my final thoughts. Names have been cunningly disguised.

Luke            Coaching within remote management

Coaching helps with managing remotely in two ways. Firstly by giving a structure to conduct conversations over the phone with an emphasis on taking action (Way Forward) and secondly by getting maximum value from any face to face meetings that you do manage to have.

Leia           Coaching around resistance to change

People only resist change when they cannot see “What’s in it for me?” you can now use coaching to explore people’s reasons for resisting change and help them discover (become aware of) the benefits of changing for themselves (choose responsibility)

Han             A refresher

I hope you left feeling refreshed! And with some wider and deeper insights into coaching

Ben             Formalising prior learning and coaching without expertise

You need expertise to teach; but not to coach. As long as your people have the expertise, you can use coaching to help them use it to best effect.

Lando           Coaching for support

Coaching is not in any way limited to a boss-subordinate relationship. As David’s PA I think you have a unique chance to coach at NCFE, free from some of the other issues that come with the line management relationship.

Artoo         Coaching as part of line management

In the end it’s about managing resources (time, money, etc) and coaching people. I hope the light bulb is still burning brightly 😉

Darth                 Coaching to get the best ‘out’ of people

Coaching is about helping someone to get the best performance out of themselves – the potential for which was always there. Coaching is about supporting the release of that potential.
