Coaching has emerged as a mainstream approach to deliver critical learning in work organizations. For EA programs and EA professionals, it is important to understand coaching and its role in organizational learning. We must also master the art of coaching as a means of delivering the unique value of our expertise in human behavior in the workplace.
Attendance at this training will enable you to accelerate the learning process for building coaching skills and creating a coaching product in your external or internal EA program or in your private practice. For external programs, offering a credible coaching product will create a strong distinction between your services and the competition's. For internal programs, coaching will enhance program relevance and utilization to create stronger ties with HR and organizational development colleagues. For EA clinicians in private practice, coaching offers a way to expand your services to a wider base of potential clients.
The class content discusses the differentiation of business coaching, personal or life coaching, and counseling. A framework for competency-based coaching helps participants to position their coaching activities in alignment with an organization's learning objectives. A practical paradigm for using Emotional Intelligence competencies bring the EA practitioner's skills to bear on the coaching experience.
Andy LeFave's background as a coach, clinician, and EA professional who has worked in both internal and external EAPs makes him uniquely qualified to lead this class.
