2020 Coaching Practicum with Plum Cluverius
2.5 Core, .5 RD CCEU
One characteristic of a great coach is that whatever their skill level, they want to get better. When it’s just you and your client, there aren’t many opportunities to explore what just happened, from the coaching move perspective. Wouldn’t it be great to hear from fellow coaches, whom you respect, that you just hit one out of the park? Or maybe you’d like to know of alternate coaching moves that could be more effective in a specific situation.
The ICF Virginia chapter is pleased to offer you this opportunity to hone and take your coaching level up a notch with the 2020 Coaching Practicum. It’s an opportunity to learn by doing. You’ll observe and debrief coaching demonstrations, coach a client and receive feedback from peers in the safety of a small group, and – you’ll be coached.
All three experiences can add to your repertoire, add to your confidence, and give you food for thought as you move forward in your practice.
- To observe skilled coaches as they work with clients
- To explore critical moments in a coaching session and identify coaching moves that help the client move forward
- To practice coaching in a supportive learning environment
- To receive supportive and constructive feedback on a coaching session
- To identify the core coaching competencies used in a live coaching session
- To sharpen observational skills as a client and observe by giving feedback to fellow coaches
