Reflect on Your Observations.
In class you had the opportunity to observe, or be part of a live coaching exchange. Reflect on what you learned and write a Note-To-Self to retain that awareness. Tip: Re-watch the class video to pick up other ideas and insights.
Consider these questions to craft your note to self:
- What worked well?
- What did I learn by observing this coaching session?
- How will I integrate and/or incorporate this learning into my coaching?

- Assess your own coaching exchange using the Competency Observer Guide
- Document your insights to use in your development as a coach.

- Ideal length: 20 minutes. Not to exceed 30 minutes.
- Feedback can be in any form with a focus on how the coach demonstrated the competencies. Be very specific. "When you said to the client _____, I felt that was demonstrating ______.
