Developing a new skill whether in sport, work or hobby can be both exhilarating and at times intimidating, especially when it takes us out of our comfort zone. We can watch the training videos, take the classes and practice, practice, practice but there comes a time when we need to take the plunge and put our new skill to work. But taking this plunge can cause anxiety and trepidation especially when the stakes are high - for example when it involves our career or important relationships.
So how do you move from training wheels to flying solo with your newly developed skill? As with many things the hardest part is often just getting started. We hear from both new and seasoned coaches that there is tremendous value in practice but at some point they must take a leap of faith in order to put their new coaching skills to work with real coachees. Taking this leap often means getting beyond the idea that they need to master coaching first and not being afraid to 'mess up'.
We also hear that when coaches have the opportunity to see how others are coaching it can often lead to an aha moment. When observing others coach, they can see the skills used and start to really 'get' the power of coaching. They understand that coaching doesn't have to be an hour long conversation. They see how being coach-like and developing the ability to respond and coach on-the-fly is golden. To support you in building your confidence and taking that leap boldly we've put together our next webinar where we will show you The 5/5/5 Coaching Skills™ live and in action. This will be a unique learning opportunity and a lot of fun in the process.

- Commonly used coaching skills with tips and pointers on how to incorporate into your coaching
Each real demonstration will be followed by feedback and discussion to enhance the learning experience.
Be sure to join us in our next FREE webinar where you'll see live coaching demos that will give you examples of how it can be done and help build your coaching skills and confidence.
