Coaching is a set of practical skills and a style of relating that develop the potential of both the individual being coached and the coach. For this development to take place, there must be a working relationship between a coach and a willing coachee, a relationship based on mutual trust, respect, commitment and confidentiality. Within this collaborative framework, the coach uses a repertoire of styles to suit both the situation and the personality of the coachee. This course shows learners what fosters a productive coaching relationship and what prevents such relationships. The course analyzes the role of the coach and examines learning styles to see how adults approach learning tasks in different ways.Learning Objectives
