Very excited to have heard, this week, that the brand new University of Oxford “Group Coaching” course has already got sufficient students enrolled for it definitely to be going ahead!
The course is running over two consecutive weekends in Oxford – 25/26 February and 4/5 March. The course attracts transferable credits for a Higher Education qualification (Certificate, Diploma or Degree). Classes are in the daytime, from 9:30am to 4:30pm.
Group coaching is a distinctive approach to the development of people and achievement of goals. Most ‘recognised’ coaching takes place in a one-to-one context, but in practice, the coaching of groups happens a lot. The management team, sports groups, work ‘gangs’, boards of trustees, charity volunteers,… The list goes on. It is different from facilitation even though many of the skills will be the same. While some leaders may use it from time-to-time, it isn’t usually seen as integral to the skillset of a leader. As it generally has an outcome and is developmental, it is a very powerful addition to the repertoire of the corporate trainer.
Whatever your interest, this course will look at both the key theoretical themes, and the practical application of group coaching. We also expect to have some fun in the process! If you are someone who prefers a more introverted approach to learning, PLEASE do not be put off – you will NOT be put through ‘silly’ games!
