Workshop 4

Being a better coach and mentor: Mindfulness in Coaching - Tools to use with your mentee/coachee

Research has shown that mindfulness can alter the physical structure of our brains and if practiced regularly can increase those parts of the brain that deal with attention and processing sensory input (Sara Lazar - Harvard Medical School).  This ¾ hr workshop briefly explores some coaching and mentoring techniques using a mindful approach as well as the use of some specific mindfulness tools.

This workshop is not just for coaches or mentors, but for anyone who functions within an environment that requires a deeper level of listening i.e., teachers, lecturers, team leaders, team members, support staff, parents etc.

Workshop 1

Being a better coach and mentor: The power of listening at a deeper level

This ¾ hr workshop briefly explored the coaching partnership that focuses on ‘deep listening’, where ‘people can think with rigor, imagination, courage and grace.’ (Kline, 2010). The content is based on Nancy Kline’s ‘Time to Think’ and ‘More Time to Think’ and discusses the 10 components for enabling a ‘thinking environment’ e.g., appreciation, encouragement, attention, feeling.

This workshop was not just for coaches or mentors, but for anyone who functions within an environment that requires a deeper level of listening i.e., teachers, lecturers, team leaders, team members, support staff, parents etc.

By the end of this workshop, participants had a broader understanding of what it means to:

  • Be in the listening environment with authentic presence
  • Remain focused, observant, empathetic and responsive to the other party
  • Demonstrate curiosity during the listening and coaching process
  • Manage one’s emotions to stay present with the other party
  • Interrupt the other party because of certain assumptions
  • Harness the power of gratitude in a way that is useful and empowering for both parties
  • Use incisive questioning to enable deep thinking in other party.

This workshop formed part of the Being a Better Coach and Mentor series and is eligible for Continued Professional Development credit contributing to a Coach/Mentor/Supervisor EMCC Global Individual Accreditation.

Workshop 2

Being a better coach and mentor: Integrating a wellbeing approach & student engagement - A coaching approach

This ¾ hr talk briefly explored how the inclusion of wellbeing elements such as negative rumination management, distraction and resilience-building strengths focus, can positively contribute to student engagement.

This workshop was not just for coaches or mentors, but for anyone who functions within an environment that requires a deeper level of listening i.e., teachers, lecturers, team leaders, team members, support staff, parents etc.

Learning outcomes

By the end of this workshop, participant’s had a broader understanding of:

  • Two key factors affecting a student’s ability to engage positively i.e., negative rumination and strengths use
  • What negative rumination is
  • The impact negative rumination can have on a student
  • The efficacy of distraction techniques
  • Those resilience-building strengths that can assist with negative rumination management.

Workshop 3

Being a better coach and mentor: Cross-cultural coaching

This ¾ hr workshop briefly explored some coaching and mentoring techniques for working across cultures. In this workshop, we looked largely at the work of Jenny Plaister-Ten and her exploration of the impact of cross-cultural coaching for coaches. We broadly explored the Kaleidoscope model as a tool to ‘enable the coach to take a systems perspective’ when coaching or mentoring across cultures.

This workshop was not just for coaches or mentors, but for anyone who functions within an environment that requires a deeper level of listening i.e., teachers, lecturers, team leaders, team members, support staff, parents etc.

Learning outcomes

By the end of this workshop, participant’s had a broader understanding of:

  • Cross-cultural coaching as a ‘generic term for a coach working within multicultural environments, organisations or teams’.
  • The challenges of coaching across cultures
  • How values and cultures integrate
  • Client meanings and events as a point of entry for the coach
  • The impact of culture on personal identity
  • What raising ‘the collective consciousness towards respecting and embracing difference’ means
  • The Cross-cultural Kaleidoscope model.

This workshop formed part of the Being a Better Coach and Mentor series and is eligible for Continued Professional Development credit contributing to a Coach/Mentor/Supervisor EMCC Global Individual Accreditation.
