Only NZ company with ICF ACSTH status – Approved Coach Specific Training Hours

Introductory Webinar
We introduce you to your trainers, answer your questions, and consider where coaching fits into the leadership landscape. The purpose of this session is to get logistics handled so that we can move straight into content and learning from the beginning of Live Day 1.

EOCC Live Day 1
We start with getting to know you - ensuring you are ready to begin. Then it’s learning tips, defining coaching and an entertaining video. Your trainers demonstrate coaching, and you have a chance to try coaching for yourself before lunch. All of your coaching practices will be relevant to your unique situation.
After lunch we look at the core principles of coaching, the habits of effective coaches, and the foundations of coaching. Followed by communication skills – beginning with listening; then speaking with clarity - offering you three things to include every time you speak. We complete with an introduction to all aspects of clarifying, and leave with an overnight assignment.

EOCC Live day 2
We begin with an energising review of Live Day 1, then get back to communication skills. Today we move more deeply into speaking with clarity; we incorporate all aspects of clarifying and then we cover permission, feedback, acknowledgement and questions - with many practical exercises using relevant-to-you scenarios.
We introduce the Coaching Conversation Cycle and you bring all your communication skills together in your own practice, as your trainers begin observing your coaching in our Competency Observation process.
You will receive individual feedback, verbally and in writing. These are followed by more trainer demonstrations, more practice in pairs and small groups, plus a pertinent video. We consider practical acknowledgement. And begin the Coaching Conversations Route. We complete the day with your overnight assignment.

EOCC Live Day 3
We begin with the review and your questions. Now we work on the complete structure for whole coaching conversations. You will use both your developed communication skills and the Coaching Conversation Cycle, within the Coaching Conversations Route. Introducing SMARTER and PURE goals. We cover Creating Actions and Reviewing Actions so that you leave the Live Days ready to go out and coach.
We look together at connect and coach opportunities; and use a video which will inspire you into an individual challenge to work on in your coaching exchanges. We offer more demonstrations, build up your own practice, and help you utilize development observations from your trainers. We complete the day with your takeaway assignment.

After EOCC live Day 3 we begin a series of fortnightly webinars all of 1.5 hours duration. Each webinar includes a Review and Reflect component followed by the introduction of new material. All webinars will have fieldwork (assignments) that give you up to one hour of work to complete, sometimes with your course buddy, and sometimes with coaches and colleagues.

Fortnightly 1.5 hours webinars now include support and supervision of your real life, ‘on the job’ coaching practice +self-study and/or buddy work each week.

Generating Goals Part 1 – 1.5hr (theory and demonstration). the science and art of goal-setting, a structure, some key components, a demonstration – setting you up to practice firstly with your buddy.

Introduction to formal coaching – 1.5hr. We explore elements of a formal coaching series or engagement, including the intro or chemistry session and accelerator sessions.

Generating Goals Part 2. Generating goals can be complex so we dedicate 2 webinars to ensuring you have a robust process. This session we focus on Establishing Accountabilities and accelerator sessions – 1.5hr. here we discover how to anchor everything you are learning inside the structure of a regular coaching session.

Agreements and ethics – 1.5hr. in detail we explore all the crucial elements of coaching agreements – and do some vital work on the ICF code of Ethics.

Processes of change and Practice – 1.5hr. some new models which support your neuroscience understanding of the brain, how we draw out and support “aha” moments; and the possibilities for change which emerge.

EOCC Live day 4
We come back together to amplify your understanding – More tools, new models and a deepening of your presence as you coach.

• Perspective – an exploration of the clarity of distance – one of the great gifts of an accomplished coach.

• Developing self awareness – as a coach you work with coaches on their self-awareness all the time; it is our own ability to be aware of our thoughts, beliefs and values which support us best in eliciting new learning in coaching sessions.

• Team coaching – What stays the same, where are the differences? How do we coach a team? Which elements of our contracting into team coaching best support success in this mode?

• Performance and Development coaching – Techniques, considerations – how do our freshly-honed coaching skills support us in performance and development work?

EOCC Live Day 5
Now we add the polish to everything the successful coaching leader or Executive and Organisational coach needs. Today we begin working with formal feedback tools (eg 360 degree tools); we move to developing coaching culture or cultures of engagement within organisations; +  a practical session on establishing ROI and ROE; and we conclude our time together learning how to complete a formal coaching series. We celebrate your achievements and success.

EOCC Supervision and Support webinars 1 and 2
We are committed to your continuous improvement as a coach; and Supervision allows you to bring your coaching back into the safe space of your EOCC group to look at what is working, what could be better; to consider your self-awareness, and monitor for anything which may be getting in the way of your excellent coaching. These two webinars, one per month, will monitor your success, and assist you to iron out any challenges you may be having. We use both coaching and teaching in these sessions.
