This qualification is designed for senior leaders or HR/OD professionals who want to develop their expertise and credibility in the fields of coaching and mentoring, or to establish coaching on an organisational level. It’s also for professional coaches and mentors seeking to enhance and accredit their experience with a nationally recognised qualification.
This programme is modular in format to maximise the levels of support as people progress through the formal qualification.
Module 1 – understanding the context of coaching and mentoring in a strategic business environment. This is a three-day module that explores coaching in a strategic context in detail. We will refresh some key coaching skills but we make the assumption that people working at this level already have some core skills in place. We will look at the challenges facing senior people and how coaching and mentoring can best support those at the sharp end of the organisation. We will explore some of the core methods and skills required to work with senior leaders.
Module 2 – undertaking coaching or mentoring at a senior and strategic level. This two-day module is rich in models, tools and methods. We will allow time for an immersion into their use, power and limitations. Participants will come away with a rich toolkit of methods and ideas to enhance their own coaching sessions.
Module 3 – reflecting on your own ability to perform effectively as a coach or mentor practicing at a senior level. This two-day module contains a number of elements to help with reflection on the participant’s’ own coaching skills and development needs. We will also introduce the Discovery Insights tool to explore the use of preference theory with clients.
