Fieldwork Week 7 Copy

Class Status: Not Taken

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:

  1. What worked well?
  2. What did I learn by observing this coaching session?
  3. How will I integrate and/or incorporate this learning into my coaching?

If you were the Coach today, self-assess your artwork.

Congratulations on doing a live coaching session.
Nerve racking?  ... Often.
A learning opportunity?  ... Let's see.

An additional way to learn the ICF core competencies is to observe them in action. This exercise has several objectives:

  1. Listen to the class recording of your coaching exchange to discover more learnings.
  2. Assess your own coaching exchange using the Competency Observer Guide
  3. Document your insights to use in your development as a coach.

  2. The other partner listens to the recording to provide evidence of behavior of the competencies/elements displayed (or not displayed).

  • 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 ______.
