fc green wideEvoking Excellence in Others: Foundations of Coaching is a three-day workshop in which participants are introduced to the principles and methods of coaching, while gaining hands-on experience and insights they can apply in their own working and life situations. This course is grounded in an integral approach to coaching, developed by New Ventures West, one of the leading coaching schools in the USA, and is a powerful intervention which understands that people are multi-faceted beings with unique needs.

Participants explore what is needed to evoke long-term excellence in others. They examine qualities required of a coach: qualities such as patience, discipline, and the ability to build relationships; to listen to and inspire others; clarity and rigour in their own observations; and responsibility, imagination and creativity in working and dealing with colleagues, staff, family members and indeed in all areas of life.

The workshop provides a foundation for participants to develop their own ability as coaches in identifying and resolving problems, opening new perspectives and horizons both on and off the job. Participants leave with knowledge, theory, tools and techniques they can use immediately, as well as powerful processes for working with those they coach.
