IAC Learning Circle | Transforming Education through Coaching

We are delighted to cordially invite you to our upcoming online event: the Learning Circle on Coaching in Education, organized by the International Association of Coaching (IAC).

This Learning Circle is designed to provide an in-depth insight into the role of coaching in the field of education.

If you are familiar with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, Quality Education is among the 17 listed. It focuses on “equitable quality education and promotes lifelong learning opportunities for all”. For us in IAC, we see coaching as a key intervention in the education sector.

We will explore how coaching can transform teaching and learning, and how it can be utilized by educators, school administrators, and education professionals to promote student success and personal development. As an added benefit for the audience, we will be sharing the results and experiences of the IAC pilot program run for this initiative. This will provide valuable insights and practical examples that can inform and inspire your own coaching practices.

Learning Circle IAC® THE IMPACT OF INCORPORATING COACHING IN EDUCATION 

We invite you to participate in the new Global Edition of the Learning Circle Program of the International Association of Coaching️ and this time with a great topic on the table and 5 guests from various regions of the world.
Coaching in its basic expression is understood as a one-on-one conversation, which focuses on promoting learning and development of people, through provoking and encouraging self-awareness and awakening; based on active listening, reflective questions, inviting a sense of personal responsibility and above all concrete actions to improve academic performance.
When we propose to talk about the impact of incorporating Coaching in education, we mean that this conversational methodology does not focus on teaching in a directive way like traditional education, but quite the opposite; it allows to create the right conditions to learn in a more autonomous way, creating the best environments and safe areas for people to learn by themselves, making students become true participants of learning and reach solutions through their own self-reflection, improving their academic performance and their daily life.
In the next Learning Circle of the International Association of Coaching IAC️, you will be able to enjoy together with IAC️ Coaches, the vision from their regions on this topic of great importance: “The impact of incorporating Coaching in education”.
AGENDA: Wednesday, September 21, 2022 – 9:30 NYC.
You’re Welcome at the IAC️!
