Facilitation of a Coaches College for Colorado

The Kempe Center offers a robust learning experience designed to train professionals in Colorado who provide coaching services for child welfare staff within their organization.

Based in the coach competencies created by the International Coach Federation, the Kempe Center’s Coaches College includes a conglomeration of facilitated online, virtual, and in-person learning experiences intended to cultivate coaches with the essential values, attitudes, skills, functions, and insights vital to coaching person-centered change within a child welfare system.

Emerging coaches launch their learning with self-directed, online activities designed to ground them in a person-centered coaching approach and to help them consider how it compares with other professional development methods. Rooted in this foundation, coaches grow through an invigorating, in-person experience where the “being and doing” of coaching is brought to life. Coaches leave the classroom experience ready to coach their child welfare colleagues with ongoing support from their course leaders and coach peers.

In the next phase of the Coaches College, the coaches deepen their learning, utilizing their real-life coaching experiences, as they engage in a series of group coaching videoconference calls. These interactive experiences will boost the ethical practices and professional standards of their coaching by equipping them to design coaching relationships that create space for coachee-driven change and measurable progress. Coaches also participate in practice coaching calls with their coach peers to inspire connection and sharpen skills.

The Coaches College culminates with an individual coaching simulation, designed for coaches to demonstrate their evolving coach competency, followed by closing group coaching videoconference call.
