IOSH Approved Coaching for safety
Coaching for safety is about much more than simply having ‘safety conversations’ as part of a behavioural safety implementation. It’s about helping you to develop a more collaborative style.
Coaches deploy their skills to help their colleagues and clients access their personal resources – their knowledge, their experience and the understanding they have about what’s happening and what is possible – with a view to supporting them to make their own better decisions about how to overcome obstacles and move forward. Coaches exist to be collaborative and supportive and to help others perform better.
But we’re not satisfied with merely helping you develop coaching skills. IOSH Approved Coaching for safety can be a stand-alone course (for many it is) but it can also be the first step in an extended programme of support where the goal ultimately is to build a better culture.
IOSH Approved Coaching for safety is a unique, highly-participative programme based on a number of practical exercises all involving real-life issues and problems the delegates bring themselves – there is absolutely no role-play.
IOSH Approved Coaching for safety is a 2-day workshop which covers: –
Module 1 What is the role of an OSH practitioner? (And what do practitioners actually do?)
Module 2 What are the attributes of a good OSH practitioner?
Module 3 What is coaching?
Module 4 The GROW Model
Module 5 Group coaching conversation
Module 6 What are the attributes of a good coach?
