Course Description

This 2.5 hour course allows you to get the most from coaching. So if you are being coached in business, sport or life then this is for you. It is based on the book It's Not About The Coach that I published in 2013. It is highly practical as the course relies on presentations, interviews, readings from the book and lectures that focus on the case for coachability. You can of course accompany your learning by reading the book also. This is a 6 part advanced course that builds on the 3 part introduction course. Here is more about the content itself…

Ten years ago I was struggling to ascertain whether coaching was right for me, despite the fact that my organisation had paid for and arranged a world-class coach. Greater authentic impact was certainly one of my key goals but I was struggling to take to the challenge of coaching – the probing, questions and observation in particular. After some visible resistance I slowly found my feet as a coachee.

I begin speaking to colleagues; slowly these conversations turned into a research project and eventually a book (It's Not About The Coach) that I published in 2013.

I began to realize that coaching is a space between two or more people, coach and coachee. Typically coming together to discuss performance and how it might develop. However, to date just about all of our research and literature has focused on the coach. Why aren't there any resources for the other half of the coaching relationship? Everyone else thinks it is about the coach; training, qualifications and accreditation etc are readily available. Yet we often neglect the hero of the story - the coachee.

A new world where coachees are at the centre of the relationship. Inspiring them to…

  • Make informed choices about coaching
  • Discover readiness for coaching
  • Develop the values required by coachees
  • What are the requirements?

    • Preferably take the It’s Not About The Coach 3 part introduction course prior to starting this one
    • You could take a look at my book which this course is based on – It’s Not About The Coach
    • If you are up for being coachable then you are in the right place
    • Oh, and don't forget your performance will have to shift as a result of taking this course. Curiosity, challenge, questions, goals, systems and energy in coaching will all be addressed

    What am I going to get from this course?

    • Build on the work you did by taking the 3 part introduction course
    • Assess if you are you ready to be coached
    • Understand if you possess the skills to be an effective coachee
    • Make informed choices about coaching
    • Discover readiness for coaching
    • Develop the values required by coachees
    • Challenge your perception and adapt to coaching
    • Develop curiosity so that you can reflect on your performance
    • Welcome challenge so that you can create enough tension for improvement
    • Invite questions that can take you and others to the next level
    • Change your performance and take action as a result of being coached
    • Set goals so that you are clear on your direction
    • Nurture systems so that the networks around you serve your goals
    • Harness energy so that you have the motivation to be coached

    What is the target audience?

    • Anybody who has taken the 3 part introduction course
    • Anybody thinking about being coached
    • People who are being coached in business, life or sport

    Curriculum

    Section 1: Intro
    10:01

    Here you will learn more about you, me and what people have been saying about my book that this course is based on. You will find connections to my website resources and all 6 parts to this course and the resources that I provide. We will establish your intent and make sure you are up for the learning to follow.

    05:54

    Here I describe the results you can achieve based on the 6 parts. We will also explore the challenges of being coached and how you can find solutions to these problems. We will break down the myths surrounding coaching and replace them with contemporary views, which leads us nicely into the 6 parts that will give you a solution to getting the best from coaching. We'll outline the common mistakes as well as your next step.

    6 pages

    Complete this short questionnaire and get an overview of how coachable you are.

    Section 2: Curiosity
    06:50

    We start with our first area of being coached - perception. Challenge your perception and adapt to coaching.

    In this lecture we recognise how important it is to be curious when you are being coached.

    16:19

    Hear from Mo Cohen coach, facilitator and author. Mo was the first person to coach me so I reflect on this journey as well as tapping into Mo's views around curiosity.

    03:35

    Hear how my curiosity led me to the other side of the world.

    02:03

    Enjoy my rehash of this well knowing saying and reflect on times that you've missed out on coaching.

    Section 3: Challenge
    10:01

    Make sure you know how much challenge to bring and what support can or can't do for you whilst you are being coached.

    09:59

    Check out this short video where George Anderson (a running coach) interviews me on the subject of coachability.

    03:10

    Here you will find out about the pitfalls of balance, try harmony instead and you will get the most from coaching.

    04:42

    Your coach will always be ready to serve you but how far off this line of readiness are you?

    Section 4: Questions
    09:11

    Being coached requires you to live in the space of questions. Answers will follow but this lecture reminds us to be patient.

    03:33

    This lecture explores the importance of asking questions and being counter culture in our 'tellaholic' society.

    03:33

    This short video describes the links between being authentic, developing coachability and harnessing personal energy.

    Section 5: Goals
    09:05

    Moving into our 2nd (and final) area we look at how you can change your performance and take action as a result of being coached.

    This lecture looks at the importance of considering both energy and goals when you set your direction.

    03:37

    This reading reminds us to think about being as well as doing. Coaching can get us doing things differently, however, if you are really up for coaching then it will influence who you are being.

    01:55

    Coaching tends to be quite time intensive, you don't have long to respond to the coaching which is one of the reasons why being coachable is so important.

    Section 6: Systems
    08:41

    If you are excelling at being coached things will change around you, this lecture points to the changes in your network that need to take place.

    A playful look at systems
    Preview
    02:19
    04:02

    The most immediate systems is the one that exists between you and the coach, this lecture prompts us to make sure that you are both being served.

    03:18

    This video suggest that the newness of coaching as a development activity heightens the need for being more coachable.

    Section 7: Energy
    10:39

    As we reach the 6th and final part of this course we are reminded that if you are coachable then you create energy. But we need to be precise and make sure we refuel on a regular basis paying attention to the 5 energy sources of soul, body, heart, mind and spirit.

    10:56

    If it wasn't for Jazz (my coach a few years back) then my book and online course would never have been achieved so quickly. Jazz is an expert in personal energy and offers plenty of advice for how we can manage our energy when being coached.

    04:13

    This last reading picks up on the one thing that can get in the way of coaching - our ego. This lecture will prompt you to minimise its impact.

    02:41

    Typically coaching is delivered on a 1:1 basis which again increases the intensity of coaching and the need to remain coachable as there is no where to hide.

    Section 8: Outro
    05:49

    As we reflect on our learning journey you will realise that you can now achieve the following results...

    Challenge your perception and adapt better.

    Change your performance and take action.

    06:00

    Now you can overcome the challenges of being coached, by finding solutions to any problems you might face. You will have broken down the myths surrounding coaching and replaced them with contemporary views. Aware of the common mistakes people make in coaching you can now tackle your next steps.

    6 pages
