Expected Duration
35 minutes

The coaching relationship is different from many other working relationships you may have encountered in your career. A coach has a special position that isn’t as prescriptive as a manager or as instructive as mentor; a coach is focused on guiding the individual being coached through their own process of discovery and growth. There are five phases of coaching, and this course will cover the first three: enrollment, discovery, and developing the action plan. In these stages, the coaching relationship and its goals are created, setting the stage for the remainder of the coaching engagement.


Taking the First Steps with Your Coachee

  • assess a candidate’s suitability for coaching
  • ask assessment questions that will help develop coaching goals
  • select empowering personal advice guidelines (EPAs)
  • guide the coachee in the creation of their personal strategic action plan (SAP)
  • coach a client through the beginning stages of a coaching engagement
