  • Foundation Coaching Skills

    Training Course | Medway NHS Foundation Trust

    Medway NHS Foundation Trust

    This workshop imparts the essential skills required for being an effective coach and using these skills when line managing and developing direct reports. This is a practical course; where the delegates will be given and minimum of two opportunities to micro-coach and receive feedback on their practise by a trained coach. We explore the dichotomy of leaving choice and responsibility with the coachee and the line manager’s requirement to set and maintain standards. We also work through the sometimes challenging issue of coaching being seen as a remedial intervention; put in place by a senior. We look at how we manage those expectations whilst still being able to coach ethically.

The group then move onto as to how they can harness these differences and create complementary attitudes and behaviours within the work place and improve their work relationships.

We focus on the legalities involved with employing a new member of staff and how the policies and procedures underpin the Trust’s recruitment process. We begin by creating the job description and person specification; we then move onto creating an advert that will attract the right person. We prepare for the interview; in particular concentrating on effective questioning and carrying out a couple of mock-interviews with post-exercise feedback. We then finish by looking at the induction process.

Additionally we look at how to manage the dynamics of a diverse team; each with their own inner world.

We also spent time on coaching skills and the ability to present information clearly.
