Solution Focused Coaching
Having recently trained 191 careers advisers in Wales on Solution Focused coaching techniques, I’d love to know how widely the approach is understood and used in England. We’ll have a very short survey, so if you’re a Careers Adviser, we’d love your help to find out and will give you a lovely bookmark to say thank you! There will be a prize draw too.
In Wales, 95% of the advisers trained said that it would help them in their role. Many of them dealt with resistant and challenging clients and welcomed the option of a different approach to use. It is certainly not a replacement for a robust guidance model, but if you find you’re getting nowhere with a client, it can be very beneficial. We’d be happy to chat about how it can help you or your team. If you would like a course outline to take away, we’d be happy to give you one.
We’ll also have course outlines for some of our popular courses that will give you a good idea of our approach. There has been a lot of demand recently for Presentation Skills, Getting the Best from Others, Performance Management and Introducing Leadership and Management. We get excellent feedback from our delegates and clients, you can see some here.
If you can’t see what you are looking for, please do have a chat with us. Most of our work involves designing training tailored to meet the specific needs of our clients, so please view the outlines as a starting point; we will work with you to make sure that the content hits the nail on the head.
We will also have with us some Nice day for a Coaching Conversation training packs for you to view. This is our innovative course based on a story to help it stick. We can either deliver this training for you, or you can buy the pack for your own trainers to use. You can find out more about it here.
We’ll have a supply of Careertrain books that are much loved by Career Advisers at special show prices. if you have never seen The One to One Toolkit and The Groupwork Toolkit, please do come and take a look.
If you would like us to put a copy aside for you, please let us know. If you need to place a bulk order for your staff (many careers companies use them to support IAG staff training), please come and talk to us.
We’ll also have some copies of Julie Cooper’s other books: Face to Face in the Workplace and How to discuss 360 Feedback. Both would make excellent additions to your professional library. We have some complimentary copies of Face to Face in The Workplace to give to Line Managers, so let us know if you lead a team, you might be lucky!
We’re looking forward to the opportunity to step away form the desk and the training room to have some good conversations. Feel free to pick our brains! Hope to see you there.
