A “COACHING STYLE” OF TRAINING
My trainings are best described as a coaching style of training. A coaching style entails a very interactive delivery style that places high emphasis on respecting the knowledge and experience of participants, places high value on collaborative learning, encourages critical thinking discussions and delivers the conceptual material in a conversational style as opposed to a traditional “follow the power point” approach. The goal is that participants leave with much new knowledge and also many questions to self-reflect on to bring back to work to put into action to improve their practice.
