Effective coaches help individuals feel good about their work and gain a heightened sense of commitment and ownership in their work. They also enable individuals to master new skills and responsibilities in a way that meets an organisation’s needs for innovation, speed, and quality. The skills required of an effective coach appear simple, but are much more difficult to practice consistently and thoughtfully in a work environment.
How Get Fit for Coaching: A Skill Practice Game works:
After a brief presentation on the five key coaching skills, teams begin the first round of play, racing against the clock to answer coaching questions correctly, developing a sharper understanding of the five key skills. In round two, participants are asked to respond to everyday coaching situations, earning a 'letter card' for each correct response. The first team to earn a card for each letter in the word 'Coach' wins the game.
Get Fit for Coaching: A Skill Practice Game Learning Outcomes:
• Practice and strengthen the five key coaching skills
