This course is for people who already have some experience of coaching (for example via our half or one day Introduction workshops) and provides an opportunity to practice and refine coaching skills through the RD1st, simplified version of Action Learning. We also explore the role of the facilitator in action learning and explore how to create and facilitate your own sets.
By the end of the day participants will have:
Recapped and practised core coaching skills.
Developed an understanding of the origins, principles, uses and practices of RD1st Action Learning.
Practised several ‘rounds’ of RD1st Action Learning, with several participants having the opportunity to facilitate a set.
Explored how to set up their own RD1st Action Learning set.
There is a mixture of training, practice of skills and reflective sessions, as well as discussions about the use and application of the skills and tools.
Format: 1 day
Level: For those with some experience of coaching – this is an ideal next step after our One Day Introduction to Coaching Skills course.
