Why is coaching so effective?
Coaching is a vital part of an effective professional development program. Coaching can build intention, skill, knowledge, and capacity. Why? Because it goes deeper than any other professional learning component: into the intellect, behaviors, practices, beliefs, values, and emotions of a learner.
Coaching creates a nurturing relationship in which a learner feels cared for and is therefore able to access and implement new knowledge more effectively, as the purpose is made clear. A coach can facilitate deep reflection and learning can take place. A coach holds a space where healing can take place and where resilient, joyful communities can be built. This is another important component to building a training with high engagement throughout.
