About this Course
This is an online course, with a one-day, all-class, real-time online session and nine online self-paced sessions.
The one-day real-time session focuses on deepening and generalizing the collective understanding of effective foundational coaching practices. You'll observe and critique practices in a variety of situations, then share and receive feedback about individual practice.
The remaining sessions rely on self-guided slide presentations, interactive discussion forums and active use of the Coaching Companion website. You'll engage with your peers to reflect on and analyze your coaching practice, as well as to incorporate the foundational skills introduced during the one-day session. Video-recorded assignments are a critical element of the course, supporting self-reflection, assessment and feedback from instructors and peers.

- Grow and improve your competency in the basic skills of Practice-Based Coaching
- Deepen your understanding of engaging interactions and environments
- Apply your knowledge of coach competencies and skills and Engaging Interactions and Environments in job-embedded learning assignments
