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?

Module 7         Curiosity exercise

Module 8         Coaching skills session 1 (The coach practices GROW being person-centred)

Module 9         Active listening (Includes an active listening exercise)

Module 10       Coaching skills session 2 (The coach practices GROW, being person-centred and actively listening)

Module 11       Being solutions-focused

Module 12       Coaching skills session 3 (The coach practices GROW being person-centred, actively … you get the idea)

We’re delighted to be returning to the fabulous Cottons Hotel and Spa, Manchester Road, Knutsford WA16 0SU for our next public course on Tuesday 10th and Wednesday 11th September 2024.

Over the years, probably due to its proximity to Manchester Airport, this venue has attracted delegates from as far afield as Australia, Brazil and Saudi Arabia. That’s one of the reasons we love this course so much … the people we meet and the conversations we have … we can’t wait.

We haven’t advertised this course fully as yet, but still a couple of places have been sold, so please … don’t miss out!
