Andrew Blench, School Business Management Consultant and Coach, School Business Partner Limited

There is a growing recognition in the public sector and within industry that having a ‘coaching culture’ in your organisation leads to higher levels of staff wellbeing and increased levels of productivity and effectiveness. Having line managers who can use coaching skills in their daily roles is a key component of having a coaching culture and schools are no different. Andrew’s workshop will give SBMs – and others who line manage staff in school – an overview of coaching skills and how these can be applied to day to day working relationships and conversations.
He will cover the following topics:
  • What is coaching? Looking at a range of definitions and how this differs from mentoring/training/consulting/counselling.
  • Listening to encourage thinking.
  • Powerful questioning.
  • Use of paraphrasing and summarising.
  • Effective use of feedback.
  • Different coaching models.
  • Practical exercises and tips to take back to the workplace.
This is an interactive workshop which is a mixture of taught theory and practical application. Delegates will practice coaching skills on each other, and Andrew aims to ensure you fun and inspire each other to put coaching skills into practice back at school. To get you started, here is a powerful question: ‘What could you do if you weren’t afraid?’

Take home points:

  •  Learn what coaching truly means in a school setting.
  • Take away practical improvement exercises to teach your team.

This session is for:

SBMs and other school support staff with line management responsibility.
