Cognitive Coaching

The Office of Lifelong Learning is excited to offer Cognitive CoachingSM, with cohorts in both Edmonton and Calgary, beginning in the spring of 2020. 

Why coaching?

Leading people, helping others make changes, and educating others requires not only knowledge, but also adaptive skills of communicating, engaging and fostering others’ thinking in a psychologically safe way. This means that at times, instead of directing or providing solutions, you guide others through problem-solving.

These adaptive skills are taught in and refined in a Cognitive CoachingSM seminar. You will become skilled in mediating someone’s thinking, by building rapport and posing questions that help the coachee develop their own problem resolving strategies. You will learn how to quickly establish yourself as a safe “sounding board” that builds the internal resourcefulness of the coachee. 

The skills taught can be used informally in “on-the-fly” discussions and in more structured formats. With extensive opportunities to practice during the workshop, participants will feel confident implementing adaptive approaches to support others in a variety of contexts – at work, in the clinic, in the classroom, and with others.

The Details

The 8-day Cognitive CoachingSM workshop is offered in two parts of four classroom days each. Each 4-day session is structured to begin with two classroom days, then a break of 3-4 weeks to allow practice and implementation, followed by another two classroom days. 

Accreditation

This activity is an Accredited Self-Assessment Program (Section 3) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, and approved by the University of Calgary Office of Continuing Medical Education and Professional Development. You may claim a maximum of 20 hours (credits are automatically calculated) for each of Part 1 and Part 2.
