In this program our goals focus on business & workplace communication as well as how we can serve the needs of our learners to be more effective communicators when negotiating, emailing, on an online call, or presenting.
A language coaching approach will sensitize you, the language coach to the communication elements at play so that your coaching can accommodate better for business settings unique to the learner. This is exactly what we are going to help you do during our program: make sure you are the one who helps your clients through their language and communication-related challenges.
If you feel less in control of how to support your clients these days - 2 trainers will be there to provide expert advice all through the program - you can turn to them with any questions you may have.
Do you want to understand what is really challenging your ideal learners? Maybe it's that no-one has ever asked them the questions to actually think it through? Together we will look into multiple perspectives to get the creative ideas and coaching skills fired up!
We will help you build your skill set and your corporate toolkit so you will be able to get to the core of communication issues your learners are not making breakthroughs with – yet.
We might actually be coaching confidence, motivation… not language at all, language issues may be secondary.
Are you familiar with language coaching, have you already attended an ILCA course or do you have a coaching background already? This course is for you!
Will you learn how to teach negotiating, presenting, holding meetings…? No. We believe coaching is not about providing information in the lesson, but creating awareness, clarity and finding ways to tap into the creative self to find unique strategies to work towards goals.
