The certification course in detail
AC1: Challenge Coaching (3 days)
In order for your client to develop his or her full potential, you as a coach must challenge and shake him or her up sometimes. Effective coaching must therefore be "challenging" at times. The first block of the certification course focuses on how you can do this effectively and still maintain a good relationship with your client. You will also learn how to use the model of the "Inner Team" to visualize the inner dialog of your client, for example to resolve inner conflicts.
- Elements of challenging coaching conversations
- Questions and interventions to get your client out of the comfort zone
- Being authentic as a coach
- Identifying the client's "Inner Team" and working with it
- The specifics of telephone and virtual coaching
AC2: Coaching across Cultures (3 days)
Our clients operate in international settings and are faced with the challenges of working and managing cross-culturally – both on an individual, professional and an organizational level. You as coach will probably be working with clients from different cultural backgrounds. In this second block of the certification course you will learn to recognize and integrate the impact of cultural differences both into the coaching relationship and into the topics and questions your clients want to address in the coaching sessions.
- What is culture? Models of culture
- Cultural dimensions and their practical implication
- The impact of cultural differences on coaching
- Supporting your clients to recognize and bridge the cultural gap
