Help your coaches get in shape!

Becoming a great coach might seem easy but it does require training and practice! Effective coaches help individuals feel good about their work and gain a heightened sense of commitment and ownership. They also enable individuals to master new skills and responsibilities in accordance with their organization's needs.

Get Fit for Coaching is a fast-paced and fun experience that gives participants the opportunity to practice five distinct skills associated with successful coaching and communication between the coach and “coachee”:

  1. Building Rapport
  2. Observing and Analyzing
  3. Questioning and Listening
  4. Providing Feedback
  5. Facilitating Learning

Get Fit for Coaching is a cross between a game and a training course. It can be used as a stand-alone game to build, refresh, or reinforce coaching skills, or as part of a broader leadership training program. It is suitable for managers, supervisors, team leaders, and anyone who wants to become a more effective 'coach'.


How Get Fit for Coaching works

After a brief presentation on the five key coaching skills, teams begin the first round of play, racing against the clock to answer coaching questions correctly, developing a sharper understanding of the five key skills. In round two, participants are asked to respond to everyday coaching situations, earning a 'letter card' for each correct response. The first team to earn a card for each letter in the word 'Coach' wins the game.


Learning Outcomes:

  • Practice and strengthen the five key coaching skills
  • Discover how to develop effective coaching relationships and provide a rewarding work environment
  • Learn how to improve others' performance and maximize potential through coaching.
