Are you seeking purpose and change in your life - at work, at home at leisure or in the community? Are you looking to improve collaboration in your workplace, or working with others for social good? Do you want to utilise social media and networking to create new opportunities and possibilities in a way that feels authentic and meaningful? Do you want to make things happen?
Through this 4-week online course we will introduce you to tried and tested tools, technology and behaviours to help you deliver meaningful, sustainable change. Change that helps you collaborate in the modern world, learn how to ‘work out loud’ and make things happen. (We are also running a separate one-day introductory course at RiseMCR, Central Manchester on Wednesday 16 November if this suits you better).
The course builds on leading practice in coaching, clean language, leadership development, networks and systems thinking and ‘working out loud’. Built around four core elements of making things happen:
1 Knowing what is important to you: developing clear purpose and goal
2 Learning at your best: having a growth mindset, getting the support and resources you need
3 Good relationships: giving and receiving good feedback; understanding others; building trust and shared purpose.
4 Putting your ideas and work ‘out there’: on your own, with a buddy, in a group, online, in the spotlight and making it a habit.
Who is the course for?
Our courses are open to all. We want each course to be a great opportunity to clarify your own goal(s), connect with other people, to learn from each other and explore new ways we can live, work, collaborate and make change.
We actively encourage a diverse range of people to undertake our courses. Previous courses have been attended by coaches, managers, leaders, entrepreneurs, change agents and community organisers.
We all benefit from stepping outside of our echo chambers and working with people who have different experiences and perspectives than us.
When is the course?
The course runs from 10 November until 1 December 2016. Online sessions will take place from 10-11.30am each Thursday. We recommend that you register at least a week before the course starts so we can send you preparatory materials and ensure you are all set up for the first session.
What will you experience and learn?
This course will introduce you to the tools, technology and behaviours that we feel are key meaningful and sustainable change and will give you an opportunity to practice these with the support of a coach and a WOL practice group.
Participate each Thursday 10.00-11.30am (BST) - in an online group session introducing you to the resources, tips and tools for that week. You will then join your practice group for a one hour session for active learning. If this doesn't work for you or your team please get in touch with us before booking so we can look to accommodate your needs in another way.
Be supported to utilise technology to enable your practice. For example we'll stay in touch and share learning throughout using Slack, a free app that you can use on your smartphone or computer, and online sessions will take place via Zoom, an excellent video conferencing platform.
Access coaching support from the team, to include an hour 1 to 1 coaching session, to help you identify your goal, take steps towards achieving it and have a good experience.
On completion you will receive a certificate and become part of a growing Working Out Loud community in the UK. You will also receive an invite to the UK's first WOL Gathering next June which we are running with Helen Sanderson Associates - further information available at woltogether.com.
To get the most out of the 4-week online course, you will need to be able to:
• Access a computer with internet and video connection, and a headset/headphones to take part. If you are on the go it is possible to dial in to the online sessions on your phone but this doesn't provide the optimal experience.
• Participate in all 4 sessions for 1.5 hours
• Define a goal to work towards - don’t worry though, small is most definitely beautiful and support will be at hand.
• The on-line sessions provide a time and space for you to work on your own development. There is no other required time commitment, life is busy, but we will help you to find ways to continue your learning and make progress towards your goal between sessions to suit your circumstances.
Who will deliver the course?
Eve and Nicola will be delivering the on-line training and sharing information and learning via Slack throughout the course, as well as supporting participants with 1:1 coaching. This course draws upon our learning and experience in Clean Language, Organisational and Relationship Systems Coaching, Neuro-Linguistic Programming and Working Out Loud.
If you have any queries about whether the course is suitable for you, or particular needs that we need to address to support your inclusion, including financial, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
