9781588542953: Get Fit for Coaching

Effective coaches are instrumental to building stronger leaders, motivating employees, boosting morale, and improving communication in the workplace. So what does it take to become a great coach? Get Fit for Coaching teaches coaches-in-training how to identify the skills associated with successful coaching, and equips them with the knowledge to improve those skills, leverage their strengths, and improve their skills.

Learning Outcomes

- Identify areas of strength and areas for improvement
- Understand the five key skills of effective coaching
- Provoke critical thinking on what it takes to be an effective coach
- Learn how to apply their new knowledge and skills on the job

How It Works

Results of the individual assessment and peer feedback provide the participant's Coaching Competency Profile. This Profile pinpoints the participant's areas of strength and improvement regarding each of the five vital coaching competencies: Building Rapport, Observing and Analyzing, Questioning and Listening, Providing Feedback, and Facilitating Learning.

The Self-Assessment is available in print or online form; Peer Feedback Forms are available in print form. To provide insight and practice, the Participant Guide includes interpretive information, tips for keeping fit in each competency area, exercises for each skill, and action planning.

Trainer certification is not required in order to facilitate Get Fit for Coaching.

Based on a review of literature and the available research on coaching, HRDQ's Research and Development Team has identified five distinct skills associated with successful coaching. These five skills constitute the five competencies measured in the Get Fit for Coaching self-assessment. These five competencies are also at the center of the Coaching Process Model, which demonstrates the open flow of communication back and forth between the coach and the person being coached.
