If you attend IOSH Approved Coaching for safety, you will spend two days learning and practicing the skills and techniques of collaboration. Coaching is all about collaboration – coaches exit to be collaborative and supportive and to help people perform better. We designed Coaching for safety because we think that’s the role of a safety practitioner too.
If you attend IOSH Approved Coaching for safety, you will learn that curiosity drives collaboration and that where you focus your curiosity is a choice. If that sounds strange, perhaps you’ve thought that you’re curious about whatever it is you’re curious about, as if you have a natural inclination or default. In our experience, most safety people’s natural inclination is to focus their curiosity in a place that isn’t helpful to coaching. We find they need support learning how to focus their curiosity in a more helpful way.
If you attend IOSH Approved Coaching for safety, you will learn what the ‘active’ in active listening really means. After completing our Active Listening Exercise, one delegate remarked recently, “there’s so much being communicated, I had no idea. It could be exhausting.” That’s how busy you are, if you listen ‘actively’.
If you attend IOSH Approved Coaching for safety, you’ll learn simple techniques for being truly solutions-focused. In our experience, many safety people are preoccupied with how things came to be. They have a habit of asking “why?” and that’s not always helpful to the coaching exercise. Coaches are more concerned with supporting people to find a way forward toward a solution.
If you attend IOSH Approved Coaching for safety, you will receive support from fellow delegates who will collaborate with you to find a way forward with real-life issues you’ve brought to the programme – there is absolutely no role-play.
We designed IOSH Approved Coaching for safety to help safety people develop these skills. These skills complement technical knowledge and help safety people be the very best they can be.
“A brilliantly engaging course – refreshingly delivered – not like any other course. I genuinely believe it is the most important health and safety course I have taken and it has changed me as a practitioner.”
