About A Coaching Approach to Mentoring

A Coaching Approach to Mentoring utilises the skills and tools of coaching to support colleagues in a way that allows space for thinking and dialogue.

This course explores the nuanced similarities and differences between coaching and mentoring from the perspective of both the mentor and mentee. This is essentially about expectations and the stance required to best serve the needs of your colleague at any given time. 

Knowing when and how to respectfully share your expertise is an important skill in building positive relationships and is a key consideration in coaching and mentoring relationships. 


Minimum Requirements

Participants in this course have normally attended the GCI Introduction to Leadership Coaching course. Ideally, participants will also have experience of applying their coaching skills in their workplace roles.

Structure
Learning Design

At GCI, we believe that we act our way into learning rather than learn our way into acting. With this principle in mind, all of our courses have a strong emphasis on practice.

When we are engaged in praxis we are reflecting in action – taking what we are learning and applying it in real-life situations. Our in-person and online courses enable praxis through a ‘coaching approach’ to facilitation combined with a range of thoughtfully designed adult learning experiences including:

  • individual and group reflection activities
  • co-operative learning tasks
  • practice opportunities using real workplace scenarios
  • modelling
  • observation and feedback
  • debrief sessions


The Coaching Approach to Mentoring course is available in a range of delivery patterns:

  • One full-day (in-person or online)
  • Three 2-hour workshops spaced over a number of days or weeks (online only)
Certification

A GCI Certificate is issued to each individual completing this course.
