Hi All

I am currently developing a Coaching and Development module for a Leadership Training Programme and wondered whether anyone had any good coaching role play exercises used in similar sessions.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi Claire and all,

Rather than use role play exercises. Why not ask participants to bring along to the workshop "bite sized" coaching issues that they would be happy to be coached on.

This way people get practice with real issues, albeit small ones, and you never know, some one might get just the coaching they need.

It is better to front load this and ask participants to bring 3 or 4 ideas to the workshop ahead of time.

Thank you for this suggestion. It's much appreciated.

I support Andy on this, this gives the delegates a real practice rather than a "Yeah but I wouldn't do that in the real world..." situation
I have also seen delegates walk out of the practice session with an absolutely life changing outcome that no one ever expected

I too agree with the great suggestions of asking the delegates to bring real life scenarios' I run a Coaching 4 Mgrs, 3 day workshop and delegates bring along real-life coaching opportunities, it makes the role-play much more interesting, relevant and fun.
I do have a brief exercise though called Printer's Box around Coaching - please contact me and I'd be happy to share it with you.
Good Luck

 Hello Buffy,

Was wondering if you would be so kind as to also share the Printer's Box Coaching Exercise with me, I am teaching individuals that are just moving into management and at times they struggle to bring there own examples.  Thought if I had something in my back pocket it would help to elevate some of the stress they sometime experience.
