This course CET313 Partnership & Performance Coaching aims to develop learners’ capabilities in leading and developing individuals. Learners will explore and understand the core concepts and theories of Emotional and Social Intelligence that supports the practice of coaching. Through live coaching with peers, open inquiry and deep listening, the GROW model and Performance coaching will be presented for action learning. Application begins in class as the self is put under the reflective light to articulate one’s personal goals and be coached, before one can coach others. Personal Mastery is translated to Team Learning as they bring the coaching structure back to the early childhood education centres, with their staff and peers, with the children in their care and with the parents.
