ECA 204. Sharpening Your Deep Listening & Intervention Skills As A Coach
This telephone-based seminar will teach you a disciplined yet creative system to track your interventions with clients to determine how well you are listening and intervening. The purpose of the class is to teach you haow the coaching intervention validation system works, and how you can useit to improve your work as a coach.
The class starts with an inquiry into the listening process, using a poem written by Wallace Stevens. We discuss the emotional requirements and constraints for becoming a good listener, and what listening has to do with observing, reflecting, understanding and loving.
The course takes place every other week- a total of six classes starting Wednesday April 9th , 2003, 12 Noon New York time for a total of ten weeks. Each class lasts 90 minutes. Students receive credit for 6 hours of continuing education (CEEs) which they can use towards ACC, PCC or MCC certification or re-certification. The class teaches skills related to ICF Core Competencies as a coach.
You are required to present a live 30-minute hour coaching session with a client or written or recorded transcripts of work with a real coaching client. If time does not allow you to make the presentation in class, you are required to submit tapes or written transcripts to the instructor prior to course credit being awarded. (Tapes and/transcripts must be received by the instructor by June 25th, one week after the last class, scheduled June 18th.)
You have the chance to role-play both being a coach and a client, as well as an observer. This allows you to ìtry onî the concepts being taught.
Each class has a feedback segment that allows you to discuss what youíve learned, and to discuss your lessons learned with your peers. The class is taught in the spirit of providing constructive criticism for risk-taking and learning.
Attendance is taken at the beginning and end of each class. If you enter the call later than 15 minutes after the class has started, or leave more than 15 minutes before the class ends, you do not receive credit for that class. You may opt to receive only four or five CEEs for the class (by attending only four or five classes). To do so, you must notify the instructor before the final class, the number of CEEs you are seeking. You must, however, complete the assignment successfully to receive continuing education credits.
If you do not presently have coaching clients, you will not be able to receive CEEs for class attendance because you will not be able to complete the class assignment. You are welcome to attend the class as a coach who is interested in furthering your learning.
Fee: $ 300.
Credit hours: Six.
Note: This is an open class open to students who have not taken any other ECA classes.
