Coaching for local residents, volunteers & community workers: what is it?
Coaching is a one-to-one interactive relationship where one person (a trained coach) assists another in identifying and accomplishing goals, both personal and professional. Through powerful questioning and committed presence during regular sessions, the coach can facilitate the space whereby the person identifies the steps they want to take to become even more effective in life, work and relationships.
“I didn’t know much about coaching at the start. The relationship with my coach was very helpful – indeed life changing.”
What does the programme involve?
10 hours of face to face contact with a trained coach, meeting regularly over a period of about 8 months.
A one-night residential gathering at the beginning and end of the programme. The opening gathering sets the scene, introduces participants to some theories about coaching , and brings participants together from different backgrounds. The closing gathering draws together the learning and experiences of the programme, offering insights for future personal development.
“I often don’t slow down long enough to reflect on work and personal life. This was a space where I could slow down and think about bigger picture rather than all the minute details.”
