Being new to coaching, I was unsure what to expect from my training and coaching sessions. The model of coaching has taught me a great deal about how we communicate and the power of reflecting questions back to a person for them to find their own solution. I have been most inspired by this idea. I now believe that we personally can find the answers to issues and problems we face, and I often find myself coming back to these ideas in my own life when faced with a decision.
I am most excited to continue using coaching in my leadership style as a new Head of Year and I hope that it gives my team ownership of their career progression and space to develop and improve our year group.
I really enjoyed the course and learnt so much about listening to others. It has changed the way I work with colleague (asking for permission, the big picture, what would be the ideal outcome).
I really enjoyed being coached as it allowed me clarity on several issues. I have asked previous coaches to continue with coaching me.
The course helped me gain confidence and that I can coach others to help move their thinking forward. I really enjoyed the course and I love helping others explore their goals and devise plans to meet them. I also am excited that I can help people explore and maybe change their limiting beliefs.
Coaching has transformed my life! I have been learning about how to be brave at work and home - and learning what authentic assertiveness means for me. I feel confident now about my ability to meet challenges at work and in relationships. And I know that I can talk with my coach about anything in my life without her judging me. Coaching gives me space to sort out and explore my thoughts and feelings.
The course gave me a solid coaching foundation. It inspired me to learn more, also built up my confidence as a coach. It is powerful to have a coaching mindset and to use in teaching and our day-to-day conversations. I am very excited to introduce coaching to more people.
Coaching is transformational! I have learnt so much about myself through coaching and have built a much more positive and open mindset. I have become more confident and truly believe in myself, especially when dealing with changes and challenges in life. I really appreciate the thinking space during coaching sessions, and that’s quite often when magic happens.
The coaching learning journey has been one of self -discovery and adaptation. The accreditation has altered what I perceive a good leader to be and the leader I would like to become. My understanding of communication and collaboration has deepened, and I can see how a generative thinking meeting can be so impactful and foster a meaningful rapport. To support others through coaching is something I am looking forward to.
Being coached myself has brought about a change in my own self-awareness and mindset. The coaching structure has allowed me to dedicate time to think things through in a safe space and uncover goals and solutions that I previously did not recognise.
