The Coaching Clinic®

The Coaching Clinic

Today’s business environment is highly competitive, and you know if your organization is going to thrive, your team members have to perform faster and better than ever before. They have to be open to learning new skills, seeing things from different perspectives, thinking creatively, and executing on their ideas.

This isn’t always easy, of course, and if you’re a leader you’ll need to invest the time and energy to coach your team members toward success. But what if you haven’t coached before? What if you need to grow your coaching skills so you can provide your team members with the support they need?

That’s where The Coaching Clinic® comes in.



What Is The Coaching Clinic®?


One of our more popular workshops, The Coaching Clinic® is an interactive session geared toward anyone who provides coaching to others—including executives, managers, and HR professionals. Leaders gain an in-depth understanding of the coaching process, develop crucial coaching skills and competencies, and practice using those skills with five to seven real work situations while in the clinic. 

The Coaching Clinic® is built around the Coaching Conversation Model®, which helps leaders develop coaching capabilities in five key steps: 

  1. Establishing Focus: Determining the coaching agenda, clarifying team members’ goals, and examining the gap between those goals and where the team members are now. 
  2. Discovering Possibilities: Asking questions, listening nonjudgmentally, confirming understanding, and helping team members consider consequences. 
  3. Planning the Action: Focusing on outcomes rather than problems, dividing projects into manageable portions, and setting target dates for completion. 
  4. Removing Barriers: Uncovering possible barriers, determining how to clear them, and providing team members with support for eliminating them. 
  5. Recapping: Reviewing what has been learned, gaining commitment to actions, reemphasizing support, and establishing accountability. 

As they master the Coaching Conversation Model®, leaders also: 

  • Create a powerful definition of coaching, recognize the benefits to coaching, and understand the challenges of coaching initiatives. 
  • Learn to build trust, create a positive coaching environment, and adopt a successful coach approach. 
  • Develop important coaching skills such as contextual listening®, discovery questioning®, messaging, and acknowledging. 
  • Complete the Personal Coaching Styles Inventory®; this helps leaders define their personal coaching style and recognize the styles of others, including the strengths and liabilities of each style. 

We offer a variety of options for delivering The Coaching Clinic’s key concepts:

  • A two-day, full Coaching Clinic® program 
  • A one-day condensed program that builds core coaching skills (with less focus on advanced skills)
  • A half-day program that focuses on the Coaching Conversation Model or Personal Coaching Styles Inventory
