TPC team up with Values Based Leadership to deliver coaching courses in China

Damion Wonfor delivering a coaching course

The Performance Coach is pleased to announce another partnership with Values Based Leadership, this time delivering coach training in Shanghai, China, from March 2015. 

The programme centers around 2 workshops with workshop one taking place during 23-25 March 2015 and workshop two during 15-17 June 2015. This programme offers participants a professional coaching accreditation with the Institute of Leadership and Management - the ILM Level 7 Certificate in Executive Coaching qualification.

About our ILM Level 7 course

Our ILM Level 7 course aim to develop coaches working at leadership levels within organizations. The programme examines a wide range of skills and abilities in preparing participants to take on the role of an Executive Coach.

Central principle

The central principle that underpins our ILM Coaching programmes is that the advanced skills and behaviours implicit in being an executive coach cannot be developed at a single event. We believe that the opportunity to apply the skills in the real world - to review, learn and adapt - are essential to successful implementation of skills building programmes if they are to be sustained and fully embedded within the working patterns and identity of our participants.

It is for this reason that our programmes emphasise the need for coaching practice and include a heavy focus on experiential learning and feedback.

Key elements 

  • In order to prepare participants for their programme, individual concerns are clarified and personal objectives are set. Each participant is briefed by one of the programme leaders by attending a 'virtual' group session.
  • Each participant will be personally tutored throughout the programme.
  • Module 1,  ‘Foundation Coaching Skills’, covers the core coaching topics in a variety of learning styles. It also introduces key concepts and provides a forum for discussing best practice and the critical conversations that need to take place between the participants, colleagues and those they are likely to coach in enabling them to learn, perform and enjoy their work. 
  • Module 2, ‘Advanced Coaching Skills’ builds on the ‘Foundation Coaching Skills’ workshop to improve skills, techniques, and models that develop the ability to work in increasingly challenging situations. Each workshop combines elements of theory, practice and discussion about the practical implications of using the new skills and their application in a working context.        
  • Coaching Practice: throughout the programme, participants are expected to identify and formally coach a set number of coachees away from the workshops.
  • Co-Supervision / Buddies: after the first workshop we ask participants to form buddy relationships. This has two key purposes. Firstly, it creates a working relationship where a colleague can share their coaching experiences, develop and practice ideas and concepts, apply key coaching tools and problem solve.  Secondly, the buddy pairings use a simple supervision model, which will be introduced on the course, to formally to review their coaching practice with clients outside of the workshops. It is our experience that this enables participants to deepen their knowledge of applied learning and helps to introduce the value of supervision.
  • Participants are required to use a “Reflective Learning Log” throughout the duration of the programme. This includes a variety of forms used to aid their learning, such as; self-evaluation and feedback forms, coaching session reports and details of additional learning requirements. For certification participants are required to produce three written assignments.
  • All participants must pass a practical assessment of their coaching skill and ability at the end of the programme (day 6). 
  • Following the completion of the workshop element of the programme, each participant attends a virtual group supervision session. This is designed to help participants embed their learning from the programme and their coaching experience, provide insight and guidance on submission of the learning portfolio, and focus their ongoing development.  
  • Participants will also have access to The Performance Coach’s Learning Management System (LMS), which provides learners with access to our coach demonstration videos, webinars, online discussion forums, resources, forms and information concerning the programme, e.g. joining instructions.

Foundation Coaching Skills Course in Dubai

Dubai executive coaching courses

On 25, 26 and 27 October 2014, The Performance Coach is proud to be launching its executive coach training programmes in Dubai by delivering its highly regarded Foundation Coaching Skills Workshop.

This introductory workshop will provide participants with an opportunity to achieve a recognized coach qualification with the European Mentoring and Coaching Council (EMCC) at the Foundation Award EQA.

Once completed, it will also enable participants to attend our more advanced qualification programmes with the EMCC and the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM). 

Contact us now regarding places, or read more about the course below.

About the workshop

This workshop is a training programme where participants learn the core models and techniques of high quality coaching. They also study the theoretical underpinnings behind coaching, allowing their personal coaching practice to move beyond a mere management tool and become a mechanism for increased learning and higher performance.

Unlike many other introductory coaching programmes, our three-day module features a high level of leadership development. Coaching cannot achieve sustainable results unless it is rooted within a specific organisational context. For this reason, participants are challenged to examine their personal leadership style and find ways of integrating coaching into their daily responsibilities.

Our faculty will also encourage participants to explore the changes that they need to make in their own behaviour and actions, in order to both coach effectively and to sustain the development and learning of themselves and those they manage and 

Each participant will receive a certificate of attendance from The Performance Coach on completion of the module. This certificate can then be used as a record and can be utilised for accredited prior learning for our professional coach development programmes.

Participants that are interested in achieving the EMCC EQA award at Foundation Level will be able to attain this by completing some coaching practice and providing evidence of their learning.

Benefits of the course

By completing our three-day module participants will:

  • develop core coach competencies
  • understand the key skills and models for coaching and be able to apply these in a coaching relationship
  • define coaching and understand the range of coaching styles
  • understand the boundaries for a coaching relationship and how to contract effectively
  • learn a variety of tools and techniques which will enable them to coach in a variety of contexts
  • explore the importance of supervision within coaching
  • learn to self reflect and appraise coaching capabilities to identify areas for personal development in coaching, and plan for new learning.

Cost and venue

The cost for the courses is AED9500. Venue details will be announced closer to the date of the course.
