The Performance Coach is delighted to announce its partnership with Values Based Leadership to deliver coach training courses in Singapore starting in November 2014.
"I am truly excited about the launch of our open programmes in Singapore. We will be offering participants a unique and inspirational experience as well as place where they can become exceptional practitioners." - Charles Brook, MD, The Performance Coach
The programme centers around 2 workshops with workshop one taking place during 26-28 November 2014 and workshop two during 18-20 March 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.
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.
- 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.
