The Grow Coaching model, first developed by Sir John Whitmore forty years ago, aims to provide practical skills in cultivating others through a process that helps people GROW by:

  • Identifying Goals (What do you want to achieve?)
  • Determining Reality (Where are you now?)
  • Exploring Options (What could you do?)
  • Deciding what you Will do (What will you do?)

Through four interactive workshops we will help you develop the skills and confidence in coaching and so effectively coach others. This will enable coachees to develop themselves, build capacity and develop their mission and ministry in whatever context.

“Coaching is an ongoing and intentional conversation that Empowers a person or group to full live out Gods calling.” Keith E Webb.

Each workshop will cover process, skills and practice

  1. Workshop One: Introducing the model, exploring what coaching is and is not, giving it a go, developing istening skills
  2. Workshop Two: Developing good reflective practice, asking powerful questions and giving it a go
  3. Workshop Three: Outcomes focussed, designing actions, SMART, accountability, giving it a go
  4. Workshop Four: Aspects of contracting, a longer coaching session, What will do you next?

This is a practical course which involves you being coached, coaching and observing. You will need to bring topics, problems, situations, etc. to be coached on

By taking the GROW coaching you will:

  • Cultivate the processes and skills to grow others
  • Enhance personal and professional development
  • Develop transferable coaching skills
  • Learn and practice with others in the cohort
  • Benefit from the resources and skills of the partners.
