Responsive Coaching - Coaching Defined and the Outcomes of Coaching

Coaching may seem simple, upon first reflection, but dig a little deeper, and coaching is tool that gives and gives and gives. It gives to the coach, the coachee and trickles right on down to the students.

What exactly IS coaching? According to Rob Horner from the University of Oregon, "Coaching is the active and iterative delivery of prompts that increase successful behavior and corrections that decrease unsuccessful behavior." Nice! To add to that explanation, coaching is done by someone with credibility and experience with the target skills, it is done on-site in real time, it is done after initial training, it is done repeatedly and it is adjusted in intensity according to need.

Given that nice definition of coaching, what are the outcomes of it?

The outcomes of coaching are long-lasting and varied. Coaching gives a fluency to trained skills. Coaching allows for adaptation of trained concepts and skills to local contexts and challenges, including new challenges that arise. Coaching can give rapid redirection to misapplications and an increased fidelity of overall implementation. It can give improved sustainability, which is often due to the ability to increase coaching intensity at critical points in time.

JP focuses on Responsive Coaching. We have seen the results of coaching for years upon years, and we are believers in the success coaching can bring. Check out the other articles in this newsletter or visit our website to learn more about JP-specific coaching ideals, beliefs and practices.
