Why should I work with the newest trend of online guidance (e-coaching)?
The Internet has become an integral part of our lives. We are getting more and more familiar with communicating online. As a professional guide or coach, online developments offer new opportunities in guiding or coaching your clients and employees. In addition to this, your clients will start asking for online guidance solutions more often. Online guidance and/or coaching provides a valuable addition to (and can sometimes even replace) face-to-face conversations. E-coaching goes beyond technology; a lot more is needed to effectively and efficiently apply online guidance and reap its potential benefits.
Working time and place independent is an obvious (cost-effective) benefit. But the power of text-based online guidance reaches further. Among other things, a big advantage is the frequent contact between the professional and client. This creates a lively and continuous interaction where engagement and commitment increases. Social anonymity facilitates quicker access to the core of the problem and writing instead of talking increases reflection for both coach an client. These and other distinctive elements can lead to acceleration in the development process.
What does Masterclass E-coaching have to offer?
If you want to start with online guidance/e-coaching, you should be aware of the possibilities and limitations. The emphasis in this Masterclass is on text-based coaching. Verbal communication is taken away, which requires extra care with a different form of communication in a professional dialogue. To effectively apply online guidance, you need the appropriate language skills; what is the effect of the use of your language, what is your client really saying in his / her message, how do you align your language to the language of your client?
Who is it for?
The Masterclass is aimed at coaches, career counsellors, HR(D)- professionals, counsellors, guidance experts and supervisors who want to learn how online guidance/e- coaching can be successfully implemented.
