Event description

Description

Event Overview:

Improvement Practitioner 'bolt-on' sessions are designed to support members leading services and directorates, who wish to either build on their learning from AQuA’s Improvement Practitioner and Advanced Improvement Practitioner programmes, or to focus in more depth on the topic offered. They support the development of skills, knowledge and confidence in applying concepts and theories to bring about sustainable quality improvement projects.

Who is this event aimed at?

This session is ideal for members leading a particular service or directorate, who have participated in either the Improvement Practitioner or Advanced Improvement practitioner programmes, and wish to further develop their knowledge of coaching. It will also be useful for individuals who would like a more in-depth training session on the approaches that can be used by leaders around coaching for improvement.

What will attendees learn at this event / workshop?

Attendees will learn the difference between coaching, mentoring and counselling and how coaching techniques can be employed to unlocking a person’s potential to maximise their own performance. The session considers the importance of reflection to problem solving and innovation, ‘deep listening’, giving feedback, and how to manage the different psychological reactions to change which might be found in a team. The session goes on to consider different leadership styles, the factors to team success, and how colleagues can be motivated by a sense of autonomy, the desire for mastery of skills, and a sense of purpose. Sessions incorporate interactive exercises and group discussion.

Learning objectives:

  • Demonstrate an understanding of coaching skills and how they relate and differ from mentoring and counselling skills

  • Understand how to use coaching conversations in the workplace to engage with staff and manage change

  • Understand our own leadership style and how adults learn

  • Enhance current coaching skill repertoire including Listening, Building Rapport, Questions and Feedback

  • Experiment with new skills and techniques and apply them back in the work environment for areas such as engagement and managing change
