1. After the class reflect, refine, consider, adjust, test, and arrive at your coaching definition. Create your own Person-centered coaching definition based on the class information. Then explain in a 1page double-spaced paper why you chose your definition. What stuck out to you? Of the many ways to define Person-centered coaching, why did you go with your particular wording?
· “Coaching is unlocking people’s potential to maximize their own performance. It is helping them to learn rather than teaching them.”
· “Partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.”
· “It’s a behavior, and the behavior is this: can you stay curious a little bit longer? Can you rush to action and advice-giving a little bit more slowly?”
2. Go COACH someone! Have at least a 15” person-centered coaching conversation. You don’t have to record it but do get some reactions from the person you coached. Feel free to have more than one coaching conversation. Write a 2 pages double-spaced paper on:
· what you learned?
· what did you do well?
· what would you do differently?
