Challenging Coaching. LeaderShape Masterclass, Weds Oct 30th

 John Blakey & Ian Day, University of Chester –  a UK ICF Regional Event worth 7 CCEUs

WAKE UP and prepare to be challenged!

CHALLENGING COACHING provokes and encourage coaches to move beyond the limitations of traditional coaching. John Blakey and Ian Day detail their unique FACTS coaching model, which provides a practical and pragmatic approach focusing on:

  • Feedback,
  • Accountability,
  • Courageous goals,
  • Tension and
  • Systems thinking.

Using this model enables the reader to enter the zone of uncomfortable debate that sustainably transforms individual and bottom-line performance. These expert authors and speakers explore FACTS coaching in theory and in practice using case studies, example dialogues, and practical exercises so delegates will be able to successfully challenge others using respectful yet direct techniques.

You will get:

  • New skills to challenge yourself and those around you courageously
  • The know-how to apply to this approach in practice
  • The expertise of senior business people who have led in large, multi-national organisations
  • A rallying call to a broader, collective sense of purpose!

This workshop will explore using challenge to:
Teach leaders to lead with coaching skills
Help people lead by example
Develop ruthlessly strong humility
Show the right kind of authority to engage and motivate yourself and the workforce around you

This workshop can also be counted towards a prestigious post-graduate University degree and carries
ICF (International Coach Federation) Continuing Coach Education Units (CCEUs) – 7 hours.
The Masterclass is provided by LeaderShape and The University of Chester.
