Module 2: Judgement

The first response to being judged is to feel guilty - even if its only for a very short time. And, those who judge others, often justify it to themselves as a 'truth'.  It doesn't have to be like this!

Module 3:
Active Listening

Very few people actually really listen. Generally they are thinking more about what they want to say next than what the other person is saying. Deep listening skills are a must for coaches.

Questioning is the cornerstone of coaching. When done well, it is the skill that most distinguished coaching from different forms of personal or professional development.

Creating Action

Action is not just about "doing things" it can also be reading, or talking to someone, or thinking. It can be anything that moves your client from where they are now to where they want to be.
