Advisers make good coaches – or do they? Many advice skills such as listening, asking questions and summarising are also key coaching skills, but there are several important differences.

This training course offers UKCISA members an introduction to coaching techniques which you can apply immediately in your day-to-day work with students, colleagues and staff you manage.

This course will help you to:

  • Recognise what coaching is and how, when and why to use it.
  • Listen more effectively.
  • Apply powerful questions which support development.
  • Set goals for yourself and for others.

This training is highly interactive and will provide the opportunity to practice coaching in small groups.

Who should attend?

This course is for all UKCISA members who are curious about coaching and who would like to enhance how they advise students, work with and/or manage staff. It is suitable for both new and experienced advisers and managers.
