Our team has coached individual clients throughout the world who desire to grow professionally and personally. Our coaching is often focused on leadership development and role effectiveness. When we work with organizations we can include team coaching as part of the program design. We coach ontologically and find this methodology to be profoundly transformational for our clients.
UnLearnReLearn offers training in coaching skills, effective communication, resilience, trust, leadership, team formation and alignment, accountability and emotional intelligence. Our programs are highly experiential and focus equally on practice and theory. The sustained learning and change produced in our training occurs through a combination of individual work, peer study and group learning.
For experienced coaches or emerging leaders studying with a mentor can be a very effective way to learn and grow both in terms of time and cost. Our mentors offer insight from long experience that allows real time learning by the coach or leader and to immediately work more effectively with his or her clients. Dispassionate mentorship can only be provided by a mentor focused on you.
How We Work With You
Our work with individuals can include coaching, training and/or mentoring. The learning we provide helps you understand and align your own life and can also be applied to working with others as a leader, coach, friend or family member. It is also the basis for the learning a team or organization would engage in.
Beginner Coach Training – We will work with you if you are starting your journey as a coach by offering you basic individualized study. To gain the knowledge and skills to step into coaching will take between 60 and 100 hours of learning depending on your background and pre-existing skills. As with all our programs we train to an ontological model of coaching and learning.
Advanced Coach Training – We offer trained coaches advanced learning. This learning is based on the ontological model and will include training for skills and processes along with your presence as a coach. If it is of value to you, presentation skills can be included. All of our training is customized to the learner.
OJT for Coaches (on the job training) – In the course of your coaching you may find yourself stuck, unsure or out of your depth. Those situations are perfect for in-the-moment learning. Bring us your coaching challenges and we will co-create a strategy and steps that allow you to move forward with a new perspective. In the process you will learn ideas, models and strategies that will serve you in future coaching.
Executive and Individual Coaching – We have worked with coachees in all parts of the world in a wide variety of situations both professional and personal. If are looking for a coach to work with you one-on-one we might be the place to begin your search.
OJT for Leaders (on the job training) – Many leaders have risen to their position due to technical skills however no leader is successful without relationship skills. We will work with you in real-time situations you experience as a leader and teach you new distinctions and models that will help you be a better leader today.
Small Group Training – If you are a member of a small group (6 or less) that would like to learn in any of the areas above we will create a program tailored to the needs of the group.
How We Work With Your Team
Organizations, because they are groups of human beings, tend to have similar fundamental challenges. Some of the very common ones are distrust, ineffective communication, missing conversations, a mood that doesn’t support the work and overwhelm. A typical way to try resolving these issues is to begin with the question “how?” Our approach is to begin with “what?” For instance we ask ‘what is trust to the people on this team?” Generally the answer is “well we probably don’t see it the same but we all know what it is”. That answer reveals a lack of clarity of what trust is. The starting point to build trust within a team is to agree on an interpretation that is shared. It is no different than setting financial reporting standards but is simply in a different domain. That domain is often referred to as “soft skills” which have generally been considered less important than “hard” or “technical” skills. Our claim is that the “soft” skills are the skills of human interaction, which is the core of any organization or team.
Our programs for organizations generally include in-person training days, group coaching calls, topic papers, workbooks and sometimes individual coaching. Because this type of learning happens over time it is most effective to have a program lasting 6 months or more tailored to the needs, resources and rhythm of the organization. Some of the topics that might be included in any program can be found in the modules descriptions.
