Learning How To Coach
Foundational Coaching Skills
Many doctors have an understanding of what coaching is and have experienced coaching for themselves, either in a workshop, or through receiving coaching. Whilst this basic understanding offers an insight into the skills and qualities required of an effective coach, it’s another thing to put those skills into practice. All doctors will approach learning to coach
with some transferable skills, in terms of listening, asking questions and being solution focused. However, learning to coach and embedding some fundamental coaching skills allows for a space in the coaching room that doesn’t really exist anywhere else in life. It is in this space that the individual being coached finds their answers, their inner wisdom and their truth.
These skills include:
- Building rapport and trust
- Deep, active listening that doesn’t lead to providing your own solution

These foundations of coaching are learned and practiced throughout the course so that, by the end, you are confident and competent in using all of them in a coaching session.
Learn Different Approaches To Coaching
It would be easy to think that coaching is just coaching, however, there are a number of different ways of approaching a coaching session and engaging with your coachee. Each coaching approach lends itself well to particular topics or areas of concern that an individual might bring to the coaching room. During our diploma programme we explore a number of different coaching approaches, allowing our delegates to develop their own uniquely integrated coaching style and selecting their own favourite tools and techniques from each approach.
During the course we will explore and put into practice elements of:
- The Person-Centred Approach to Coaching (you can listen to our podcast episode about this approach here)
- The Solution Focused Approach to Coaching (you can listen to our podcast episode about this approach here)
- The Cognitive Behavioural Approach to Coaching
- The Gestalt Approach to Coaching
- Transactional Analysis in Coaching
- Positive Psychology in Coaching
- Neuroscience in Coaching
