Using language as the generative channel of co-constructive solution building, Brief Coach Training applies adult learning methodology synchronously and asynchronously and encourages participants to start applying the learning in the classroom and continue to grow the coaching skills on their own in their respective settings in-between sessions. The Coaching for Resilience Series is a collection of four modules of six-hour coach training workshops with a minimum of two hours additional application hours for each module to allow further application at participants’ respective settings.
Although each module is independent and complete on its own, the series will build upon each module and development of skill will grow from each module to the next to complete a repertoire of coaching skills practiced during the workshops and applicable back to their personal lives and their workplaces. To help participants see their skill-building progress, each module will have a pre- and post-assessment that is focused not only on insights gained but on their personal appreciation of their coaching skills as they develop.
The series aims to assist new and experienced internal or external coaches, leaders, managers on how to coach their individual or organizational clients on how to harness their resilience in this time of stress, isolation, and insecurity. How can we promote wellness in our workplaces? How can we help people reinvent themselves and transition if necessary? As leaders, coaches, and consultants, how can we muster the collective strengths of the people we serve to mobilize their capacity for resilience?

The theories and techniques in Solution- Focused model as applied to conversations at home and in the workplace. This module presents the foundations of contemporary coaching practice with empirical evidence. Participants will analyze the conceptual framework of Solution-Focused practice with the micro-skills of coaching language.

How can we manage change and support our people in the process of implementing the necessary changes?

Career Reinvention: Coaching for Effective Transition. The ability to adapt in challenging times, like this one we are in now, call for the ability to reinvent and reimagine our future in a way that leverages strengths. A crisis can be a life-changing event that provokes clarity and value-driven choices in our careers. Coaching for transition uses the solution-focused approach to rethinking career options and remaking careers from a position of power instead of weakness. HR leaders, middle managers, internal coaches can use this strength-based approach to helping people transition and reinvent themselves to manage change when it happens.
Strength-Based Consulting Skills and Learning Design. This highly practical module for consultants, trainers, and managers explores theories and practices of strength-based approaches to workplace learning design. The organization's capacity to respond to challenges and adversities depends on its ability to leverage individual and group strengths as human resilience is ingrained in relationships and social support. This module incorporates the holistic view of involving cognitive, emotional, and social elements in adult learning into solution-focused application.
Brief coaching is an evidence-based coaching modality that focuses on the existing strengths of individuals and teams to develop new insights and skills. As a coach training system, it applies solution-focused approach that acknowledges the problem but focuses on the forward movement to a preferred future leveraging the existing capability and coping abilities of individuals and teams. CCBC enhances its approach to Brief Coaching by using communication science, which renders it extraordinarily effective in developing relational coaching techniques. Because of the volume of research behind it and the global use of Brief Coaching, it has continued to develop its application in so many important fields such as education and healthcare.
