If we want to schools to best serve their whole communities, we have to create a culture in which everyone feels safe, seen, heard and respected.

 

Values-based Coaching helps schools to create a caring, courageous and collaborative environment where:people laughing

  • People thrive!
  • Wellbeing and resilience are enhanced
  • Individuals improve self awareness and take responsibility or their own development
  • Professional trust and accountability underpin the organisation's ethos
  • Relationships are enriched

 

Our highly experienced, accredited coaches work with clients in all roles, enabling individuals, teams and organisations to identify or re-discover, focus on and live their values.

These values can be nurtured over time to support people to discover the very best of themselves, to increase their capacity and become role-models for others.

Values are connectors!

Values-based Coaching: Option 1

‘Values and Integration’ 

 

A deep dive into your values, and reflection on the degree to which you are currently committed to living those values as well as acknowledgement of what gets in the way.

We will explore what each value specifically means to you and the ways of being and doing which align with them.

('Values and Integration' is a Foundation Coaching Course forming the basis for many VbC programmes.)

 

Session 1: You prepare for this programme by completing a detailed questionnaire.

You go on to identify your core values by reviewing your life so far, where you are now and who you aspire to be.

You will define what each value specifically means to you.

 

Session 2: You evaluate the degree to which you are living each value and what gets in your way of committing more fully.

You develop resources for overcoming these barriers and move into action.

 

Session 3: You celebrate the successes you have achieved and continue to plan how to embed and express your values.

You will revisit the personal resources you are creating for use when your values are challenged.

‘Group Coaching’

 

Group coaching involves a maximum of six participants who are working in a similar role.

This is an opportunity for you to share questions and work through your challenges collaboratively using the precious resource of different perspectives and pooled experience.

We create a safe space by building trust so that you are able to be truthful without fear of judgement.

You will develop your peer-coaching capacity, an asset to take back to your workplace.

 

These sessions can take place on a half-termly basis, during the school-day, or as twilight sessions.

  • In six half-termly sessions, each participant brings an issue and you explore perspectives in order to look at the problem from alternative points of view and see what’s at stake. You make progress while building confidence, resources, communication skills and your ability to challenge others and integrate feedback from other participants.
  • Each session begins with a mini-masterclass in coaching skills and techniques
  • Sessions are facilitated by professional VbC coaches; the group is supported in developing coaching style communication
  • As a result of the group coaching experience, you will have created a unique community and will likely continue the conversation between and beyond the sessions.

Values-based Coaching: Option 8

‘Creating a Values-based Coaching Culture'

 

“If we want people to fully show up, to bring their whole selves including their unarmored, whole hearts—so that we can innovate, solve problems, and serve people—we have to be vigilant about creating a culture in which people feel safe, seen, heard, and respected.”
                                                                                                                                 Brené Brown, Dare to Lead: Brave Work. Tough Conversations. Whole Hearts.

 

School values are obviously at the heart of VbE and are at the heart of our coaching model for creating a coaching culture.

We all have our own set of values which make us unique, and by tapping into them more fully, we are more fulfilled, engaged and motivated.

The coaching model which underpins the Values-based Coaching Culture acknowledges that individuality in order to enable people to bring more of their true selves and strengths to the workplace while also enhancing relationships and performance.

In order to build a Values-based Coaching Culture, we offer a sequence of training courses. Each course consists of one day’s training.

 

Course 1 - The Fundamentals


An introduction to the definition of coaching in order to clarify the difference between other types of professional dialogue.

A practical introduction to the core competencies of Values-based Coaching such as creating a coaching relationship, active listening, powerful questions, creating awareness and managing progress.

 

Course 2 - Values, Purpose and Self-limiting Beliefs


Using the peer-coaching skills learnt in course 1, you will support each other to explore your inner resources and the beliefs that hold you back.

Values are at the heart of our coaching model, therefore it’s essential that all participants have this opportunity to clarify their own values.

In addition, you will explore the idea of purpose and support each other to increase awareness of self-limiting beliefs.

 

Course 3 - Integration


In this final course, you consciously integrate your inner resources and self-awareness with your coaching skills.

You reflect on the impact of your dialogue and the possibilities for building and sustaining a Values-based Coaching Culture.

 

Course 1 works as a standalone course. In order to complete course 2 and 3, it is essential to complete course 1.
