  3. Concentrate on what they DO want, not what they don’t want
  4. Develop the Socratic art of questioning. Socrates was the ancient Greek philosopher who developed a method of teaching that was based on asking questions, which would guide the learner to “discover” the right answer)

Giving CONSTRUCTIVE criticism

Most people don’t like being corrected: So the good coach is good at giving constructive criticism. Manage their emotions. Proper emotional management requires that you: -

  1. Build-up their self-esteem
  2. Notice whatever is wrong
  3. Show them a better way
  4. Use language that is objective and specific, not emotional and inflammatory
  5. Know when to negotiate and give ground, and when to stand firm
  6. Ten tips for constructive emotional management

The importance of praise and “positive reinforcement”.

People need to hear praise, supportive comments, appreciation and positive reinforcement

The good coach encourages others by giving plenty of praise. They motivate the learner by making the learner feel they are making good progress and that their ultimate success is assured.

Notes on the proper use of praise.

  1. Reinforce correct actions
  2. Timing is important. Give immediate praise
  3. The praise should be specific
  4. The praise should be used as evidence of positive personality traits
  5. The praise can be accompanied by a request for more of the same.

Summary and close

The content of the course was very appropriate, relevant to purpose and identifying key skills. I feel I have learnt a lot of new skills which I will definitely use moving forward. The trainer's presentation was excellent and ensured key points were reiterated and reinforced through course. One of the best training methods I have ever come across. Thank you.

Coaching and Mentoring Training Course Summary

There is a difference between coaching and mentoring.

A coach is a person who gives personalised training that will improve the learner’s skills knowledge and technique.
A mentor is similar to a coach; except that a mentor teaches by example; by role-modelling; demonstrating the skills that the learner can then emulate.

To be a coach and a mentor is a privilege and honour.
To be a good coach and mentor requires a high degree of skill.
