Solution Focused Coaching Training Sessions for Groups

Jo Salisbury, Director of Learning and CPD, Haringey Sixth Form College “Joanne’s training session with Curriculum Leaders was very effective in demonstrating the power of coaching in transforming professional practice. Participants were given opportunities to develop and practice basic coaching techniques and to reflect on the impact of coaching conversations. The session was empowering and inspiring, and has led to wider staff training in peer coaching to support the development of learning and teaching.”

Peter Brown, Procurement Manager – The Sixth Form College, Solihull “Joanne has a very effective way of presenting and communicating a variety of coaching and development techniques to benefit organisations in continuous improvement. Her personable manner and style is used to maximise people involvement, encouraging them to share experiences, challenges and best practice to enhance performance. Joanne then uses her skills and experience to capture ‘where positive differences can be made’ providing professional guidance in going forward.”

Advanced Practitioner, Bolton College “Thank you! I really enjoyed the coaching training! The exploration of language and ways to ask and create open questions really helped me in developing the use of this skill. I also found the role play activity beneficial. It enabled me to put into practice and experiment with the key words shown to prompt open conversation. Looking forward to your next visit!”
