The Anatomy: Foundational Coaching Course
Thank you for the opportunity to attend such a fantastic course. I think it is one of the most beneficial and impacting courses I have ever been on. I believe that the approach could have far reaching beneficial impact on the following:
staff wellbeing (as it focusses on helping the person, meeting them where they are and supporting moves forward towards their own goals; helping people to prioritise and set achievable tasks)
pupil progress linked to behaviour (could focus on their motivations, goals, help them to see a positive future and what that would be like, understanding why hard work now is of more benefit in the long run)
aligning staff values with school values, or prompting staff to decide for themselves that their values are not in alignment with schools and that a possible school move might be a good thing
if taken school-wide, should establish an ethos of listening, support, encouragement and helping people to achieve their goals which is vital in schools with significant difficulties/barriers to learning and where there is a need to turn around school performance quickly.
Obviously, this doesn’t replace mentoring but does provide something quite different and refreshingly focuses on the whole person, not just seeing target/performance driven outcomes which will really help with our duty as employers to achieve staff wellbeing
