How is the Training Delivered?
The focus of the training is on you experiencing the three-stage process of creating a collage as a visual narrative using the Collage Coaching Technique™. The purpose is for you to have a thorough appreciation of what your clients would experience and therefore be able to decide if this is a coaching resource you want to add to your toolkit. As such the majority of the time is dedicated to this activity.
To set context the training starts with a brief introduction to the rationale for using collage as a creative coaching tool. You will also have a dedicated period of 1-1 time with a facilitator to explore an image in more depth. Plus a taster of co-coaching with other attendees which enhances your learning opportunities and offers you an insight into the content of the Skills Based Training.
The three stages in the Collage Coaching Technique™ are:
- Gathering – images from a resource of various magazines
- Creating – the visual narrative (Collage)
- Storytelling – sharing meaning and the coaching conversation
As you are guided step by step through the process, the images facilitate self-directed learning. Allowing you to understand how collage can be used with coaching clients to unlock unconscious thinking, raise self-awareness, gain clarity and enable confident decision making.
Following the workshop, you will be issued with a CCE ICF accredited certificate for partial completion of Collage | A Creative Coaching Tool training, worth 3.5 hours of core competencies and resource development. Full accreditation is achieved if you also attend the Skills Based Training.CHECK DATES, TIMES AND BOOK YOUR PLACE
