Description

This ​one-day ​workshop ​introduces ​the ​framework ​for ​conducting ​conversations ​that ​lead ​to ​client ​behavioral ​change ​and ​increased ​self-efficacy. ​ ​To ​address ​the ​effects ​of ​scarcity ​and ​other ​barriers ​that ​clients ​face, ​participants ​will ​learn ​how ​to ​respond ​to ​client ​ambivalence ​using ​various ​coaching ​interventions ​relating ​to ​the ​stages ​of ​change.

This ​workshop ​also ​covers ​an ​exploration ​of ​executive ​skills, ​which ​is ​the ​ability ​to ​organize, ​plan, ​control ​reactions, ​and ​get ​things ​done. ​These ​skills ​play ​an ​important ​role ​in ​clients’ ​success ​in ​setting ​and ​achieving ​goals ​and ​the ​ability ​to ​exit ​poverty. ​ ​ ​Participants ​will ​learn ​to ​identify ​'work-arounds' ​that ​reduce ​the ​impact ​of ​weak ​executive ​skills ​and ​increase ​client ​momentum ​towards ​desired ​outcomes.

After ​this ​training, ​participants ​will ​feel ​more ​confident ​in ​using ​“coaching ​moments” ​as ​a ​viable ​intervention ​to ​help ​clients ​to ​establish ​goals ​and ​gain ​momentum ​towards ​greater ​self-sufficiency.

Content ​topics ​include:
• The ​Coaching ​Mindset
• The ​Coaching ​Conversation
• Behavioral ​Economics ​and ​the ​Effects ​of ​Scarcity
• Goal ​Setting ​and ​The ​Path ​to ​Self-Sufficiency
• The ​Impact ​of ​Diminished ​Executive ​Function ​Skills ​and ​Goal ​Attainment
• How ​to ​Respond ​to ​the ​Client’s ​Stages ​of ​Change
• Increasing ​Stick-to-itiveness: ​ ​'Doing ​With' ​ ​versus ​ ​'Doing ​For'

Participants ​outcomes:

• Know ​the ​framework ​for ​and ​have ​the ​ability ​to ​conduct ​a ​coaching ​conversation
• Be ​able ​to ​describe ​the ​distinctions ​of ​coaching ​from ​counseling, ​consulting ​and ​mentoring
• Gain ​competencies ​on ​how ​to ​use ​various ​coaching ​tools ​to ​aid ​coaching ​conversations ​for ​the ​purpose ​of ​enhancing ​the ​client’s ​ability ​to ​follow ​through ​and ​take ​actions
• Know ​how ​to ​use ​and ​leverage ​existing ​strengths, ​qualities, ​experiences ​and ​values ​to ​enhance ​the ​coaching ​relationship
