Training Spotlight: The Fundamentals of Coaching

The Fundamentals of Coaching is a half-day training being held Aug. 30 and Nov. 13 in Room 560 of the King County Administration Building.

This half-day training introduces the fundamental skills of coaching. Have you ever wondered if coaching could be applied on your job? Do you know that you can have an effective, seven-minute coaching session with an individual or co-worker? Are you aware of the mindfulness practices included in coaching? Come join us for The Fundamentals of Coaching course, where you will become familiar with the basic elements of coaching such as the mindsets and skills a coach uses to help others move forward. Participants will engage the materials through instructor-led classroom discussions and interactive social learning.
