The Higher Diploma in Coaching/Coaching Psychology will provide you with the skills, understanding, awareness and knowledge to be effective coaches in both life and business domains and to respond creatively and positively to the current demands and uncertainties of life.
Throughout our lives the three fundamental challenges we face are dealing with people, problems and tasks. Much of our learning is around problem solving and getting the job done. However as we progress through life and our careers we are faced with the choice of taking more responsibility and inevitably leading and managing others. In this instance we have not always developed an awareness of our style of engagement and how best to develop a conversation that is likely to motivate others and enhance their performance and well-being. This course explores a positive engagement with self and the processes underpinning positive approaches to motivating others both individually and in groups/teams.
On completion of the course, you will be able to:
Understand the theory underpinning coaching and a range of models and approaches to coaching
Coach a coachee from a current state to a desired state
Develop a reflective practice to support your coaching process
This course potentially grows and develops the inter-personal and intra-personal skills (emotional intelligence and fitness) which are likely to add value in the development of your career and are transferable and applicable in business, organisational, educational and health settings amongst others.
The coaching skills developed on this programme are likely to help individuals and groups improve performance, increase well-being, harness and apply strengths, achieve goals and build resilience in dealing with uncertainty and change.
