27 Jan – 02 Feb 2016
Ommen, the Netherlands

To be a coach and a mentor is a privilege and an honour. It also requires a high degree of skill. This training is intended to help you improve your abilities as a coach and a mentor.

A coach is a person who is able to observe your performance and give a personalized training that will improve your performance. A mentor is similar to a coach but a mentor is often teaching by example, by demonstration of the skills that the learner can then model.

The Practicing Coaching and Mentoring is a 7 days international course designed with the aim of
facilitating personal and professional growth for people who are involved or interested in coaching. The
program of this training is composed with the emphasis on experiential learning and is available to everyone
regardless of their professional background.

Feeling comfortable in the role of a coach and mentor comes to some people more easily than the others,
but it is, in its core, a talent that can be developed and practiced.

The build-up of the training takes individual differences of the participants into account and offers a
variety of activities, exercises, techniques, tools, theoretical framework and practical advices to improve
presonal performance in social interactions and to adapt coaching styles and strategies.

The Practicing Coaching and Mentoring training offers a unique learning approach that reaches out to the
participants through a wide range of coaching methods that incorporate learning by doing or learning by
experiencing. The training opens a door to new approaches and methods of coaching and mentoring, as they are available at the moment and manifests itself through intense practicing, using real life examples, introduction and reflection videos, as well as live demonstrations.

In this training we will explore:

The dynamics of how to establish better communication with others, both internally and externally.
How to improve connection with others and generate trust.
How to identify and clarify misunderstandings in communication.
How to increase the ability to create choices and flexibility in managing your states and behaviours.
How to match your communication to the person you are having the conversation with.
How to become more efficient in the activities you facilitate and how to create your desired impact.

The program generally consists of 7 to 9 hours of activities and practice per day, but it is usually adapted to the needs of the group. From the first day there will be time for practicing and there will be daily coaching sessions for this, where you can implement the received input.

The Practicing Coaching and Mentoring is designed as a learning setting that stimulates participants to improve different aspects of their personal and professional life. Specific results of the training are quite individual and depend on the different angles or experiential points one went through during this learning process.

In general the key outcome of this training course is the empowerment of participants, in the sense of their
capability to identify techniques and approaches that are suitable for them in everyday life and work. This training encourages individuals to be more influential in communication and to develop responsibility for themselves, rather than be carried away by the stream of events both in personal and professional sphere. Finally, it’s implemented for them to help others work on their learning processes by coaching them from their core.

Registration is happening in chronological order up to 24 or 28 participants.
