Coaching

Coaching is an intensive development method for business executives and leaders, where a personal coach helps to achieve ambitious outcomes within a certain time frame.

The difference of coaching from other personal development methods may be expressed via a car driving metaphor:

Mentor shares tips for driving from his own experience

Consultant gives advice on how to drive a car

Coach encourages you to drive in unknown territory, helps you to navigate there, to develop your driving skills and to arrive to the destination in time.

In the coaching process the coachee is driving it and the coach is observing the ride from the passenger seat. The coachee makes all the decisions and the coach only proposes techniques and makes challenges. After one meeting a business executive told me that: “now I understand that the coach is asking from you questions, that you would not ask yourself. And even if you would, you would not answer these.”


Test: Does coaching fit you?

Mark the number that comes closest to representing how true the statement is for you (1 is the least true and 5 is the most true). Then push “Submit” for result.

I am on time for all calls and appointments

This is the right time for me to accept coaching

I will keep my word without struggling or sabotaging

I am ready to “try on” new concepts or different ways of doing things

I will be straight and tell whole truth to the coach

I am willing to change self defeating behaviors, which limit my success

I see coaching as a worthwhile investment in my life

Outcomes

Personal coaching has helped leaders and executives to achieve the following outcomes:

  • setting and achieving brave outcomes
  • finding a mission in life
  • getting out of a difficult situation
  • discovering their unknown capabilities
  • learning to “read” and motivate people
  • achieving work and life balance
  • reduction of stress
  • learning to produce results easily and effortlessly

Team coaching

Team coaching is a combination of experiencing coaching, learning coaching skills and practicing these skills in different work situations.
With team coaching, team members acquire new communication and motivation skills, which bring teamwork and efficiency to a new level. As a result of such coaching the team members:

  • learn to set common targets and achieve these
  • get exposed to the art of managing people by listening and asking questions
  • learn to know team members more deeply
  • are able to awake inner motivation within team members
  • achieve fluent and effective teamwork

Team coaching is best done as a set of 3 – 4 hour workshops, which enables participants to practice new skills and deepen learnings in the time between.

Courses

Coaching masterclass for leaders

Coaching has found a firm place in successful organisations. Professional coaches are hired for senior executives. Managers of all levels are taught the coaching style of management, which develops employee initiative and creativity. A NEW TREND is training leaders to become INTERNAL COACHES for the organisation.

A LEADER/INTERNAL COACH conducts coaching sessions to the leaders and employees of other units of the organization. The aim of these sessions is to help coachees in setting clear objectives and identifying improvement areas, as well as to support their professional and personal growth. By doing this a leader/internal coach develops coaching skills and brings their own leadership quality to a new level.

This trend reached Estonia this Spring when International Coach Federation’s (ICF) Master Certified Coach Duncan Coppock from the UK gave a special course for leaders – internal coaches. Registration for the next similar course starting on November is already in progress.
 

Duncan Coppock is a highly experienced coach and has been training, mentoring and supervising coaches since 2001. He has worked with hundreds of coaches on developing their skills and business and gaining their ICF coaching credential. Duncan is the “brain surgeon” of coaching. He is able to decompose coaching interaction into primary particles and put these back together to form the best possible structure for it. Just his listening and questions modules may fundamentally change the communication skills of participants.

Duncan’s knowledge and experience are remarkable. He has engaged in coaching since 1998 and has coached leaders in the United States, Australia, five European countries, Malaysia, Singapore, and Russia.

 

 

Duncan has written a book called “The SELF-Factor: The Power of Being You. A Coaching Approach” (2005). In its preface, the great coaching guru John Whitmore says: ‘I have rarely come across any book with which I can so wholeheartedly agree. Only its style differs somewhat from mine. Duncan is a more organised and thorough than I am”.

 
Duncan speaks about his motivation to teach coaching HERE.

 

As the second facilitator I, Ivar Lukk, will bring to the course 25+ years of senior executive experience and neuro-linguistic programming skills on the NLP Master Practitioner level. My coaching skills are based on 1,000+ hours of coaching and proven by the ICF Professional Certified Coach credential.

The course is very flexible! It consists of two modules, 24 hours each. Completion of the course will provide participants with the following:

  • skills to open up complex people
  • possession of coaching leadership style
  • skills of conducting systematic coaching sessions
  • knowledge of how to integrate coaching culture in their organizations
  • greater clarity about their own aspirations and capabilities

 

For participants who wish to OBTAIN THE ICF CERTIFICATION we are offering the third training course module. We also provide MENTORING SERVICE and ASSISTANCE THROUGHOUT THE CREDENTIALING PROCESS.

 

The course schedule:

First module (2 + 1 days)
12 – 13 November and 6 December 2018

Second module (2 + 1 days)
15 – 16 January and 14 February 2019

 

Total price of the two modules is 2,150 euros + VAT per participant. In the case of registration and payment before 1 October, a friendly price of 1,990 euros + VAT will apply.

 

 

The course focuses on learning through practice and discovery. Participants will have an opportunity to hone their skills with each other and practice real coaching with personal coachee provided by course organisers. The course also includes group mentoring sessions.

To REGISTER FOR THE COURSE please send an e-mail to info@ivarlukk.com stating the name, position, organization and contact data of the participant(s). Any training-related questions may be sent to the same address and I would also be happy to give additional info by the phone +372 5177474.
