THE ART OF COACHING

Summary of workshop/​opportunity

This highly interactive workshop is based on Elena’s best-selling book, The Art of Coaching (2013). It introduces participants to tools and resources, with an opportunity to see them modeled right away.

Goals & Collaborations

What were your big takeaways from your workshop or project?

I will start incorporating some of the coaching strategies I learned and practiced in this workshop during my weekly meetings with my AT. Coaching relies heavily on asking good questions, listening, and probing to help mentees realize their own goals and paths towards success.

How might this opportunity lead to collaboration with other faculty?

This opportunity is a direct tie into the way I collaborate with my AT. It has provided a menu of tools and strategies to help with communication and fostering growth and agency.

Would you recommend this opportunity?

Yes
