Coaching: A Powerful Tool

Course summary

Porto, Portugal

6-day Course

Erasmus+ KA1

We are living in a new age. The fast changing of technology has led to a free flow of information, creating a huge challenge for educators to understand the needs, interests and capabilities of the youth of nowadays.

Reducing early school leaving is one of the priorities of the Europe 2020 Strategic framework for Education and Training, as well as Erasmus +.

This course will introduce participants to the Grow coaching techniques along with emotional freedom techniques. Aggressive behavior and bullying inside and outside the classroom will also be looked. Participants will learn how to manage and reduce stress levels, thereby improving not only their overall health but also their day to day interaction with students and colleagues (by applying communication techniques in order to reduce early school dropouts).

Well-trained teachers can better meet students’ learning expectations.

The main goal of the course is to create trust, motivate and empower teams. We need to empower the positive values in the system even if the conditions are not ideal, even if we have to deal with cultural diversity and different understanding of values.

It’s about managing techniques and how to use them for you and your organization’s benefit.

By the end of the course participants will have a substantial understanding of coaching framework and coaching models. They will develop core coaching skills, including observation process, feedback, questioning, listening, raising awareness, establishing and maintaining an authentic relationship.
