Quality Coaching – IN-PERSON

This highly interactive workshop explores effective strategies and techniques used to coach others on improving their efforts to work with young people.

You will practice three central concepts: establishing the foundation of trust and respect that is key to effectively coach staff; understanding the components of an effective observation and how to support staff in reflecting upon their own practices with young people; and creating a specific plan of action to grow your practice.

This workshop will give you the opportunity to experience and practice these concepts with your peers by taking turns coaching others under observation and receiving coaching in return. You will leave with communication tools and practical strategies to create a healthy environment that encourages staff to aspire to reflect on and improve their practices.

Please note: This management level training’s intended audience is for directors, managers, and those who are tasked with providing coaching supports/observations to front line practitioners.
