Business Coaching - Be Innovative
At the BCF Group, we pride ourselves on being innovative and pioneering when it comes to both business coaching and other areas of L&D expertise. Our ILM Level 5 Business Coaching Certificate Programme for example provides delegates with a completely new and fresh approach to business coaching; providing participants with highly pragmatic concepts and methodology that can be used instantaneously within the workplace to drive positive game-changing results... all within 2 days!
Our uniquely bespoke in-house programmes are always designed with innovation and excellence in mind; always thinking outside of the box in order to generate the correct organisational changes, outcomes and goals. By creating innovative concepts, such as 'Real Play' (see below); candidates always feel comfortable and engaged, ready to interact and learn new skills.
When an innovative and self-challenging mind-set has been forged, this in turn drives inventive and highly motivated individuals. After attending our programmes participants feel rejuvenated with the knowledge that they have the skills, expertise and support to take on any challenge at work, with the belief that they have a personal impact on driving success and growth within their organisation.
We constantly listen to the needs of our customer base and devise new courses which cater to those needs. As well as the Foundation and Advanced certificates in business coaching which we created in order to provide options for those who require only an introduction to the ideas, concepts and benefits of coaching and mentoring in the corporate environment, we are pleased to introduce our latest offering: Speed Coaching. This one day course is ideal for those who require an introduction to the world of business coaching, but either do not require quite as much depth of information as the two day Foundation course provides, or cannot spare two days away from the workplace.
The four modules of the Speed Coaching course comprise:
- Background and principles underpinning coaching
- Language patterns and how to use them with skill
- Effective communication skills
- Action planning and follow-ups
Not only does this course offer a great introduction to business coaching and workplace mentoring, but it also provides a solid base of knowledge for progression to a more thorough and comprehensive qualification in business coaching such as the ILM Level 5 Certificate, should a person wish to continue their knowledge in this subject area at a later date.
Our team building sessions or other bespoke training programmes are designed around one or more objectives; so rather than simply providing a "fun day out", the sessions actually work towards creating a better and more effective team (as well as still being fun of course!).
One of our most successful innovations in this regard is Real Play. Instead of spending the day reading through textbooks or having attendees being talked at by the tutor, we call on the expertise of actors to play out certain business situations and scenarios. Not only can delegates observe the dialogue, but they will also participate and become involved in the unfolding drama. The knowledge and "experience" acquired during these Real Play sessions will prove extraordinarily beneficial when applied back in the workplace.
The success of Real Play with regards to creating a fun yet extremely worthwhile development session has won many accolades from those organisations whose staff members have experienced it, and has resulted in many years of repeat business from them. Incorporating a Real Play element into a team development or bespoke training programme can bring about significant boosts to performance from employees and a much improved chance of success for the company in achieving its goals and targets.
