Asset-Based Coaching

Register for Course

Course Description:

Your job title might be “job coach” or “career coach” but what exactly does this mean? How do we “coach” our job seekers and help them prepare for employment? Coaching is a technique we can use with our clients to build on their current strengths and develop actionable, long-term goals. This requires building trust and demonstrating empathy with our job seekers. It also requires us to occasionally provide some constructive feedback as well as celebrate their accomplishments. In this course, we’ll discuss coaching, how to use a strengths-based approach with participants, and appropriate strategies and conditions for giving feedback as well as celebrating progress.

Topics covered include:

  • Defining and utilizing a “coaching” model with job seekers
  • Identifying the appropriate conditions for giving feedback to participants
  • Building empathy and trust with our job seekers
  • Celebrating our job seekers’ strengths and accomplishments

This course is for frontline staff and case managers who work directly with clients.
