This management book offers managers, consultants and human resource (HR) professionals a practical guide to coaching or mentoring people using a predominantly non-directive approach. It explores how a coach or mentor can help others to think through their situation and find their own way forward, one which reflects the full reality and constraints of their situation. It considers the skills which underpin successful coaching and mentoring - listening attentively, asking questions that help the other to think, playing back to communicate or check understanding, managing and focusing the conversation, and leaving space for the client to find their own solutions. It also explores how to set up an internal mentoring scheme and how to commission external coaches.
Young people's healthy emotional development is based on affirming relationships and positive experiences and for some young people the lack of these encouragements leads to personal, social, emotional and behavioural difficulties. This pack provides teachers, mentors, assistants and others with all they need to support these young people through an 'emotional coaching' programme.
This supportive and innovative programme includes seven different workbooks and nine therapeutic board games giving young people the opportunity to practise problem solving and goal setting. Topics covered include:
Facilitators' notes and comprehensive guidance on how to deliver emotional coaching, structure and rationale are all provided, giving the adults who support these challenging young people the skills and confidence to engage them in the programme. The strategies are all designed to be brief and solution focused.
We live in a culture that is uneasy with end of life issues. Yet death is the one reality we must all face. All will die, and all will experience grief. This textbook will focus on the spiritual leader who wants to use a coach approach to minister to the dying and the grieving. Participants will take away practical skills and behaviors that will equip them to effectively minister as an end of life coach. In addition to the Eight Building Blocks of coaching, the reader will learn Eight Supporting Building Blocks for coaching the dying, and Eight Supporting Building Blocks for coaching the grieving.
