Conducting a coaching skills training workshop is one of the best ways to help others develop effective coaching skills. The purpose of today’s post is to explain the key components of a coaching skills training workshop. Planning to conduct your first coaching skills training workshop next year? These tips will help you and your coaches conduct a workshop that will deliver the results you desire.
The following are the key components of a coaching skill training workshop.
Start your workshop by defining and communicating the goals and objectives of your workshop. It should consist of just one or two sentences that clearly sum up the goals that you want to achieve at the end of the workshop.
Choosing the coaches to conduct your coaching skills training programs is paramount to the success of any workshop. First of all, you need to make sure that your selected coaches have the necessary knowledge and expertise. Secondly, you also need to ensure that they have the capabilities to train others because knowing doesn’t necessarily mean being a good trainer. Finally, you also need to make sure that selected coaches can spare enough time to undergo training.
Your workshop must also include a module that defines the role of coaches. It should clearly illustrate what coaches are and what they do. You can elaborate your point using examples of successful and unsuccessful coaching approaches.
The coach/trainee relationship is an aspect that your workshop must also address. The reason is that new coaches are not aware of what a coach/trainee relationship would be like. They don’t have an idea whether it should be a long or short-term relationship or should it be formal or informal? Therefore, you need to include a module that explains the right approach in this regard.
Different age groups have different learning requirements. Adults have different learning requirements as compared to children. Therefore, you need to include a module that explains how your coaches need to adapt their coaching and assessment approaches to trainees of different age groups. It will develop skills in your coaches required for transferring knowledge to the trainees.
You also need to address how your coaches should create a training program outline covering different topics, when and how they will be covered, and when and how the coach will assess the progress of trainees. The training program outline helps both coaches and trainees throughout the training program.
The final step is to evaluate the success of the workshop. Do your coaches have a clear understanding of topics covered in the workshop? Are they feeling more confident in their capabilities to train others? Have you achieved the objectives you set for the workshop?
Whether you dream of hosting coaches for the weekend, prospects for a few hours, or business executives for a lunch-hour coaching skills training workshop, let’s make next year the year you realize that dream!
