If you’re an accomplished trainer, you’ll hopefully know a bit about neuroscience, different speeds of learning, engaging learners by asking questions, spacing learning, reflection, and putting new skills into practice.

The good news is that, as a coach, you will definitely need to draw on these skills.

A desire to help people achieve their own results is a useful starting point, but the best advice for the trainer come budding coach is to undertake some coach training.

I recently wrote an article for The Charity Learning Consortium on the process of moving from trainer to coach, looking at some of the pitfalls and how to avoid them.

Give the article a read and let me know what you think!
