About Introduction to Leadership Coaching

One of our most popular courses, Introduction to Leadership Coaching provides a grounding in the GCI approach to effective coaching in education. 

This highly practical course explores three elements of effective coaching practice: the GROWTH conversational framework; the 'key coaching skills'; and a 'coaching way of being'. It also provides an introduction to the concept of a coaching approach as a leadership stance and applies this to the context of feedback conversations. 

Participants will quickly develop the awareness, skills and confidence to have coaching conversations and to apply their learning in other conversational contexts.


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.

GCI courses are designed by educators for educators with a commitment to interactive and engaging learning experiences delivered by skilled facilitators with extensive experience in education.

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
  • practise opportunities using real workplace scenarios
  • modelling
  • observation and feedback
  • debrief sessions

The option of a spaced learning design consisting of live interactive workshops complemented by self-paced modules on our Learning Management System (LMS) provides the opportunity for participants to apply skills and techniques in their context between sessions.

The Introduction to Leadership Coaching course is available in a range of delivery patterns:

  • Two full-days consecutively (in-person only)
  • Two full-days spaced (in-person or online)
  • Six 2-hour workshops spread over a number of weeks (online only)
  • Six 2-hour workshops over three days (online intensive)
  • Blended option with one full-day in-person and remainder online


Certification

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

Ann Dwyer

"One of the best Prof Devt I have attended. Practicing coaching conversations was so beneficial. Information was organised in a well thought out way- each session building on the the prior one. Sue included some anecdotes which really made it personal and relevant. Sue is practising exactly what she is preaching. Amazing two days."
