Executive Coaching Training Presentation
Many think of executive coaching as an Art. It requires a complex interplay of knowledge and social skills. Unlike mentors, Executive Coaches must be skilled in the area of personal development. They must provide structure, foundation, and support to help individuals begin to self-generate results. The skill of Executive Coaching, however, is not learned in a vacuum. Like other professions, Executive Coaches must be trained in the effective methods of carrying out their responsibilities.
Acting as a trainer for future Executive Coaches, develop a 3-4 hour presentation to use as your guide during training. Your presentation, developed using PowerPoint, should be based on research in the field of executive coaching. Your presentation should be a minimum of 20 slides. There is flexibility in terms of how you organize your presentation (and slides), but you must include the following required components:
- Characteristics of an effective Executive Coach
- Essential skills needed to foster the success of Executive Coaches
- Best practices of the executive coaching field
- Legal and ethical issues in executive coaching
- Tools and techniques commonly used in the executive coaching field
- Methods of fostering a mutual learning relationship between coach and trainee
- Cultural competencies and sensitivity
- Coaching through conflict
- Your personal list of recommended “Dos and Don’ts” of Executive Coaching
You should use a minimum of 10 sources in addition to the course readings in preparing this presentation. In your presentation, include a minimum of 200 words of explanation/speaker notes for each content slide. Your speaker notes should be written using formal, academic language. Use APA formatting. See research criteria below.
Please refer to the Recommended Website section for information on creating PowerPoint presentations. Creativity is encouraged but it is highly recommended that you review some of the commonly asked questions and answers on the website before starting your PowerPoint presentation.
Here are some general PowerPoint tips:
- Do not overcrowd your PowerPoint slides with text
- The information on each slide should be easily read by the audience
- Depending on the amount of information on the slide, large font sizes (16 to 34 points) are appropriate.
- Do not write in paragraph format on slides
- Bullet points and short sentences are appropriate
- Do not overuse clip art or animation
- Do not turn on slide timers
