Day 1

9.00You settle into the training room and get an opportunity to meet your fellow participants.You discover that despite all the participants coming from very different backgrounds, everyone on the course has a shared desire to learn how to get the best from others.
10.45You now understand why it is that people are not working at the level of their potential but you have learnt several tactics for addressing this.
12.00You realise why motivation is unlikely to be increased just by paying people more and you have learnt how coaching gives you a key to unlock self-motivation.
1.00You appreciate the limitations of telling people what to do and how to do it and you now know how a questioning approach provides an alternative.You’ve earned your nice lunch!
2.00We give away the big secret and reveal the principles of coaching. You get to understand why coaching could never work without an appreciation of these underlying principles.
3.00Time for some outdoor activities that prove that coaching works and that it works quickly.
4.00Now that you have the fundamentals in place, we give you a detailed coaching framework to use in any coaching situation.
5.00Time for some practice! Working in small groups, you and the other participants get an opportunity to coach and be coached on real, genuine work-related issues.Probably the most beneficial exercise of the whole 2-days and ABSOLUTELY NOT role-play.
7.30Eating, drinking, sleeping. Probably in that order.

Day 2

8.30You participate in an exercise guaranteed to ensure that nothing you learnt on Day 1 is ever lost
10.30After a caffeine fix, you begin to explore how your new coaching skills can be applied to coaching in groups or teams
11.00Out we go again for a team based coaching activities. You have your outdoor jacket, your trainers and your gloves and you’re glad you do!You have also had all the theory put to the test and many of your assumptions about working in teams challenged.
1.00More food!
2.00We start to tidy up some loose ends making sure that you have a chance to personalise all that you’ve learnt to your own situation.
3.00Time for more practice with other participants.
3.30Detailed action planning for what you’re going to do back at work. A few final surprises too!
4.30You say your goodbyes and set off for home; tired but armed with tools and techniques you did not have 48 hours ago. You have new options for dealing with the problems that brought you to our training and are looking forward to solving them.
