 Advanced Coaching Learning Modules  

It is easy to remember the difference in high school between a teacher in a classroom and the coach on the playing field. The teachers job is education, which means teaching students information they do not already have within them so they can become more brilliant. The job of the coach is eduction, which is the opposite of education. The coach brings out wisdom, courage and brilliance of a player in the face of challenges. education works from the outside in and eduction from the inside out. A great teacher and a great coach knows how to do both. We will focus on eduction or what we call coaching. Coaches working in this inside to outside manner find that a client’s results change because they have changed their actions. But changing actions by the client is only achieved when the coach changes who the client is being. We offer four learning modules for learning the language of coaching.

Module 4: Creating Breakthroughs

 Learning Module 1

Building Partnerships

Learn to apply the principles and language skills of partnership.  


We all have within us the innate skills required for building partnership with others. In coaching there must be a clear partnership between client and coach. If it is meant to occur, partnership occurs in our conversations with each other and therefore partnership has a language of its own. In coaching the purpose of partnership is to engage in fulfilling a client project. This means that the coach is working with a client to help them get from where they are currently to where the client wants to be in the future. When there is no clear project, then there is no need for partnership. Any conversation that is not project based may be an enjoyable friendly interchange but it will not be a conversation that will lead to a result. Coaches become sought after only when they become known for producing clients that produce significant and consistent results in the face of whatever challenges emerge.

Learning Module 2
Launching Projects

Learn to apply the principles and language skills of projects.  


Once we have established a foundation of partnership between a coach and a client, it is then necessary to launch that project in such a way that it not only gets on track but also stays on track through to completion. The initial step is to expose any hidden challenges that might emerge to undermine the project momentum and the coaching relationship. Such challenges are usually under the surface and must be exposed but that requires an act in language most people, even coaches are not aware exists. Once the challenges become clear then the coach and the client must design the project pathway in very achievable terms so that a tangible outcome can and will be produced. In addition a coach must work with the client to establish the rules of engagement that will ensure a project can get back on track whenever it goes off track. Coaches take client projects to a successful completion.

 Learning Module 3

Managing Accountability

Learn to apply the principles and language skills of accountability.  


The art and science of managing accountability is something most people practice to some degree, but do it is a rather shoddy manner. Learning to speak the language of accountability will ensure that the communications between a coach and a client will ensure that effective, accurate and appropriate client action will occur. The coach must first be skilled in this language at a higher level that normal. They must also bring out the ability of the client to speak the language of accountability so that the client’s interactions with others produces results. Mastering this language will make a coach one many seek to work with because they are communicating in ways that give clients clear access to actions and results. When both coach and client are using this language effectively the success of a client and everyone involved becomes inevitable.

Learning Module 4
Creating Breakthroughs

Learn to apply the principles and language skills of coaching. 


Coaches are people who develop their natural skills at bringing out the brilliance of others through their questions. The starting place for coaching is in knowing that the person they are coaching has the requisite capability to perform a particular function at a higher level that they have previously. Coaches being people to a new level of performance again and again. There is no limit to what people can achieve if they surrender to a coaching process. The language of coaching generates a request for coaching without which no coaching can occur. But inevitably in the human world people reach a major impasse which they cannot get past on their own. The language of breakthrough is then required for a coach to guide a client through this impasse to a reality they may have never previously known existed. With every challenging breakdown comes a doorway to a major breakthrough if the coach is equipped to open that door. Coaches foster breakdowns as the door to breakthroughs.
