"Training is a conversation or a series of conversations that one person has with others. A coach is planning to produce a conversation that will benefit another coachee in a manner related to coachee Learning and Progress." ~ Julie Starr, Author of Training Manual
It is impossible for us to learn everything on our own behalf. We sometimes need help and support. It's great to have a conversation with someone who can be a sounding table or deeper thinking about content or issues that you may have difficulty with.
Training can be an informal five-minute conversation with the water cooler or formal development site to think about an hour or more. It's all about helping people move on, make some changes and progress towards their goals.
We train unconscious people more than we realize. We just do not mark conversation as a training. Sometimes it just happens naturally … I've trained people in most amazing places, at airports, on planes, while you have a pedicure, even on a hike!
As an experienced coach coach I often asked: What is the difference between training, guidance and training? New coaches are often hung up on the mark & # 39; training and worries that they do not do it right! Will the police officer monitor them if they find instructions or training?
The term training means different things for different people (Trust me right here ?! I spent months at University in researching the definition of training and it's not a definitive answer!
The fact is that as a coach you can use guidance, training, and counseling as part of your approach.You are guiding an attractive conversation that creates space for the other person to come up with creative solutions that they had not thought of before. In other words, do you help them build
Release the label and concentrate on the quality of the conversation!
The vocabulary is often used as a generic term to mark the relationship between the two people involved in the study project. It is rare for anyone to use training in the purest form 100% of the time. it's important that you create conversations that help others grow or make a change.
One person who determines what the conversation was actually training alone is the one who receives it!
Here are the five ways to recognize when you have a training conversation:
1. The focus is on the other person – It's ALL about the current status or experience of others. It's not about you, your ideas, the story of when this happened to you or your solutions!
2. You are listening more than talking – You are listening, asking and monitoring the conversation. You are 100% present and your focus and attention to the other person and what they say. You are perfectly adapted to them and what they need to say.
3. You Help them Describe Current Reality – By asking you, you help them explore and describe the reality of their situation. You are facilitating the conversation so that they can understand what's happening, recognize what challenges are and then start creating opportunities to continue.
4. They ask you for answers or advice – The other one seeks you for help. They do not know what to do. Most people jump in with their advice and tell them what to do. They miss the opportunity to train! Create space and encourage them to think about it, with some questions from you.
5. Expanding your vision of the situation – You encourage others to work it out for them through conversations and discussions. You are helping others increase their thinking or view something from another perspective. You could hold a mirror to reflect your own view back to them.
If you learn to be a coach, it's a good reminder of how to come up with the customer. It's so easy to give advice and offer solutions instead of allowing the other person to work it out with your support. If you're thinking of working with a coach, then these are great features to look forward to!
