Sharpen Your Listening and Questioning Skills

image

Questioning and listening skills are a cornerstone of coaching excellence. We all know how to ask questions and to listen but there is real skill to doing this effectively when coaching. Questions can be educators, catalysts, weapons, tools and much, much more. From a coaching perspective, it is helpful to think of questions as, “the seeking of information for clarity, insight and learning”. I think you will agree that any profession that is focused on communication and competency must pay close attention to questions.

Just as we have all learned, there are no dumb questions, there are also no bad questions. However, there are ways to turn a good question into a great question by paying attention to the phrasing, timing and framework. Questioning skill involves not only the ability to ask excellent questions, but also to ask them in a manner that is open, unattached and judgment-free.

Coaches need to learn how to ask insightful questions that will elicit revealing responses and then listen to the coachee. The goal is to guide the coachee through the self-discovery process. While some coaches can prepare their next question on the fly, it can be helpful to have a battery of questions covering different categories prepared and ready to pull from your toolkit.

It is not enough to ask insightful and clarifying questions. A coach must also have excellent listening skills. This one can be challenging for many of us. This takes focus, genuine interest in what our coachee has to say and discernment to ‘hear’ what they are really saying. You might think of this as mindful listening. This type of listeningcreates the ability to establish relationships and build bonds with others. One of the biggest mistakes people make in conversation is to focus on their own responses to what is being said. As a result, they end up missing portions of what the other person is saying. This habit can be hard to break but well worth practicing in order to improve listening skills. A common listening tool, and one that can help you keep the focus on your coachee, is to immediately restate what they have said to ensure that you ‘heard’ them correctly.

There is much to be learned and mastered when it comes to questioning and listeningskills. We will dive into this topic in our next webinar with live coaching demos. Be sure to register for this lively and educational webinar.

As a reminder, we also offer the 365 Coaching Questions booklet. This is a resource to help you develop your questioning skills. These 365 questions are jumping off points or catalysts for you. Categorized by topic, most of the questions may be adapted to fit different situations. We invite you to integrate them into your own voice and try out different questions in different situations. If you already have a copy, pull it out during the webinar and make notes. Don’t have a copy? Get your copy here.

 
 

Webinar: Sharpen Your Questioning and Listening Skills

In this webinar, we will discuss different types of questions plus plenty of examples and tips for better listening. We will present real live situations and have real coaches utilize their questioning and listening skills. After each demo there will be a feedback session – to highlight what worked and what they might have done differently.

Topics we will cover include;

  • Importance and impact of questioning and listening skills
  • Question type, tone, manner of delivery
  • Understanding the objectives of your questions
  • Tips for developing excellent listening skills
  • Demonstration of questioning and listening skills
  • Plenty of time for Q and A

Navigating the Coaching Credential Conundrum

image

A Google search for Coaching Credential delivers over 1.5 million results! If you have done any searches for information on coaching credential or certification you know that there is a tremendous amount of information out there. You will find many different credential and certification programs. You will find programs for life coaches, sport coaches, leadership coaches and more. This can be very confusing and a big time waste just trying to find the answers you are looking for. Questions we frequently hear are;

  • Do I need certification?
  • Which credential is right for me?
  • Does it make a difference which credential I get as long as I have one?
  • Which credential program should I attend?
  • Are there important differences between credential programs or is it just a matter of personal preference?

The decision to pursue a coaching credential is an important one. If you decide that obtaining a credential is right for you, you will be making a commitment to invest time and money. Therefore, it is important to make sure that you select the right credential and the right credential program for you. But how do you decide?

As with most things, it is important to start with your goals. What is it that you want to achieve? I believe it is important to consider both your near-term and long-term goals. Look at where you are today and your goals in 1 year, 5 and even 10 years. Knowing what your goal is 10 years out can be difficult but going through the exercise to identify where you see yourself in 10 years can be powerful. For example, do you see yourself starting your own coaching business, advancing within an organization, becoming an educator, working at the ICF? The possibilities are endless. Start with your goals to decide if a coaching credential is right for you and which credential will best help you meet your goals.

Here are a few things to consider;

  • Clients don’t care so much which credential you have. They want to know that you HAVE a credential. According to a recent ICF Study - a large majority of coach practitioners and managers/leaders using coaching skills agreed that individuals or organizations using coaching expect their coaches to be certified or credentialed.
  • If you work within an organization, at first glance holding a credential may seem to be less important than if you have your own coaching business. But having a credential not only gives you the training and skills to become an effective coach, it also helps to set you apart from your peers. Think career advancement and promotion.
  • A credential can help you overcome one of the industry’s biggest perceived obstacles. In the recent ICF study, when respondents were asked to identify the biggest obstacle for coaching over the next 12 months, the main concern expressed by coach practitioners was untrained individuals who call themselves coaches. Your credential signifies that you have the training and credibility as a professional in the industry.

Let’s say that you have clearly identified your short-term and long-term goals and that you decide that a coaching credential is right for you. Next you will need to decide which credential to obtain. I will focus on the two most popular ICF credentials; Associate Certified Coach (ACC) and Professional Certified Coach (PCC). Selecting the right credential will depend on many factors but here are a few things to consider.

  • ACC – If you are just starting out – this is the fastest path to an ICF credential. Requirements of the ACC ensure that you have a solid coaching foundation and the skills to become an effective coach. Plus, you will have the credential to put behind your name, adding to your credibility and helping to set you apart. The time and cost investment required for the ACC credential is less than for the PCC. One of the biggest differences is in the number of documented coaching hours required. The ACC requires 100 hours of documented coaching vs. 500 hours required for PCC.
  • PCC – If you have already completed significant training or if most of the people you work with or will be competing against already have an ACC, or if your goals include becoming a coaching authority or educator, then you might consider the PCC. The requirements are more extensive vs. ACC but so is the training and skill development. Because the PCC requires 500 hours of documented coaching it can take 2 to 3 years to complete this requirement.
  • By the Numbers. There are currently 22,343* coaches in 121 countries who hold one of three ICF Credentials.

13,610 Associate Certified Coaches (ACC) 

o 7,932 Professional Certified Coaches (PCC)

o 801 Master Certified Coaches (MCC)

*This number is subject to change frequently

As I mentioned, these are just a few of the things to consider when deciding which credential is right for you. To learn more about the ICF credentials and how to determine the right one for you, join our next free webinar.

How to Leverage Your Coaching Skills

How to Leverage Your Coaching Skills

When most people think of becoming a coach they think of coaching individuals within an organization or one on one in a coaching practice. But we like to think ‘Outside the Box’ when we think about the many opportunities coaching offers. You can have the formal title and role of coach or you can use coaching skills informally as you work with individuals, teams and direct reports. These skills help you develop leadership skills needed for advancement.

 
image

Once you have developed coaching skills there is another opportunity to leverage your coaching skills. You can also become a coaching educator or trainer.

Regardless of where you are today, it is important to expand your view of coaching. Don’t pigeon hole yourself or become stuck in a rut. Look at all the ways you can leverage the tremendous skills you have already developed. Here are just a couple ideas for starters.

  • Becoming a coaching educator or trainer can be done inside an organization. If you work in, or want to work in, HR, corporate development, the training department – by becoming a coaching educator you will develop skills in training as well as coaching. Most organizations have many opportunities for trainers. You can conduct the training, be involved in hiring trainers, assessing results of training etc.
  • Another opportunity is if you have your own coaching practice. As an educator or trainer, you can work with organizations to train their managers and leaders rather than do the coaching yourself. This is a great add-on to an existing coaching practice adding value to your clients, expanding your reach and marketability and opening another source of revenue.

Join our next free webinar to find out more about leveraging your coaching skills by becoming a coaching educator.

 
 

Webinar: Leverage Your Coaching Skills - 
Add Coaching Educator to Your Toolkit

In this webinar, we will discuss what becoming a coaching educator is, the opportunities, possible drawbacks, requirements and how to know if it is right for you.

Topics we will cover include;

  • Taking an ‘Out of the Box’ view of coaching
  • Opportunities of becoming a coaching educator
  • Coaching educator drawbacks
  • How to know if it is right for you
  • Plenty of time for Q and A

The Business of Coaching:
Overcoming the Biggest Challenges

image

The past two months our focus was bringing coaching to organizations. This month we will shift to individuals and the business side of coaching. This pertains to coaching practitioners both external (Solopreneur) and internal (working within an organization) as well as those who have blended the two.

As we’ve discussed in previous newsletters and webinars – there is a lot more to success in coaching than excellent coaching skills. This month we will pull the curtain back on The Business of Coaching taking a close look at the biggest challenges faced by coaching practitioners and strategies for overcoming these potential roadblocks. To get a well-rounded picture of coaching challenges and strategies we will take both a macro view and a ‘feet on the street’ view of challenges you may encounter and real-world strategies you can use to overcome. For the macro view, I have pulled a few stats from the 2016 ICF Global Coaching Study. For the ‘feet on the street’ view I will share insights from several coaches including a few from my own experience when I first started my coaching business. Be sure to register for our next webinar to get the ‘feet on the street’ view and hear how these coaches overcame their challenges.

Insights from the 2016 ICF Global Coaching Study

The study was commissioned in 2015 by the International Coach Federation (ICF) and undertaken by PricewaterhouseCoopers. There were 15,380 valid survey responses from 137 countries. Following are a few interesting stats from this study about the business of coaching.

  • The coaching industry has evolved into a coaching continuum that includes internal and external coach practitioners as well as managers/leaders who use coaching skills in the workplace. An individual may exist on multiple points along the continuum.
image
 
  • It is estimated that there are 53,300 professional coach practitioners worldwide. Western Europe accounts for the largest share (35%), followed closely by North America, with an estimated 33% share.
  • Average annual revenue of coach practitioners is $51,000. In North America, the average is $61,900.
  • The estimated global total revenue from coaching in 2015 was $2.356 billion USD, representing a 19% increase over the 2011 estimate.

When asked to identify the biggest obstacle for coaching over the next 12 months, the main concern expressed by coach practitioners was untrained individuals who call themselves coaches. The chart below presents the percent of respondents who named a particular obstacle.

image

Respondents were also asked about future opportunities. Increased Awareness of the Benefits of coaching was the top response. Additional responses, expressed as a percent of respondents who mentioned a particular opportunity, are presented below.

image

The top obstacles and opportunities can be used in developing your strategies for success. Set yourself apart by getting quality training and then make sure everyone knows about your education, training and credentials. Capitalize on the increased awareness that coaching works. Cite the literature and develop your own case studies that provide real world examples of how coaching is making a difference.

Coaching in the Healthcare Setting: Success Stories & Lessons Learned

Last month we talked about how to bring coaching successfully to your organization. This month we continue our focus on organizations by looking at coaching in the healthcare setting. We’ll look at case studies to illustrate the approaches organizations are using to bring coaching in, how they are measuring results and the real-life impact that coaching is having on these healthcare organizations.

image

Why healthcare? Most organizations, including those involved in delivering healthcare, are changing at an ever-increasing rate. This rapid pace of change is creating a need for a new way to lead that will produce positive and sustainable change; a leadership approach that is adaptable to both internal and external change. At the same time, leaders and managers are under pressure to find cost effective training programs and to provide evidence, through objective measurement, of the results achieved. We think the success stories and lessons learned in healthcare can apply to organizations in any industry, providing real learning experiences for all.

We have worked with many healthcare organizations to help them create a coaching culture and in the process developed coaching skills in over 5,000 people to date. Following is a synopsis of what these organizations are teaching us about what it takes to bring coaching in successfully and the results that can be achieved.

Before you begin: setting your organization up for success

Before embarking on a coaching program, it is very important to make sure the organization is ready. As we mentioned last month, there are certain traits common among organizations that have successfully implemented a coaching program. Review the checklist below to make sure your organization is ready to bring coaching in;

  • The business need is clearly identified and coaching is a tool that is aligned with addressing those needs
  • Clearly defined goals and objectives for the coaching program have been identified and communicated
  • Coaching champions have been identified and are on-board
  • The training will be delivered in a format that is best suited for the organization, for example, on-site, remote or a blend
  • The program will have a framework that makes it easy to learn and easy to apply so that it can be consistently delivered with reproducible results.

Before you begin: know how you will measure results and determine success

Initiating a coaching skills development program involves the commitment of resources; both time and money. Just like any other organizational initiative, it is important to know upfront how results will be measured and how success of the program will be determined. While the actual measurement methodology may vary depending on the organization’s objectives and culture, it is important to have a clearly defined measurement plan in place. The results measurement plan should be documented, communicated and have stakeholder buy in before the coaching program begins.

Results achieved: the powerful and exciting part

The results that can be achieved when a coaching program is successfully implemented are so motivating and exciting to see. Individuals, teams and entire organizations are being transformed. Following is an example of results being achieved when coaching is successfully implemented.

  1. Improved Listening
  2. Improved Communication
  3. Improved Ability to Give Feedback
  4. Improved Conflict Resolution
  5. Positively Impacted Relationships
  6. Improvement in Team Dynamics & Team Communication
  7. Increased Ability to Engage Staff in Conversations that are Solutions-Focused and Promote Accountability

Trickledown Effect: The Power of Coaching Skills

In addition to expected results, healthcare organizations are experiencing a powerful trickledown effect from their coaching skills development programs.
