A Learning Program for NYC Child Welfare and Juvenile Justice Professionals
The Coaching Collaboratives are a follow up to the Building Coaching Competency (BCC) learning program designed to support supervisors and managers as they integrate coaching into their supervisory practice. These workshops give learners the opportunity to practice coaching, meet with colleagues to discuss successes in coaching, and gain support on how to continue to implement coaching in the workplace.
Any child welfare and juvenile justice supervisors and managers who have completed the Building Coaching Competency learning program should attend this program.
The Coaching Collaboratives allow participants to strengthen their coaching skills and gain proficiency in using the coach approach.
The Collaboratives are designed to:
• Increase confidence in using the six coaching skills and mastering the coaching process,
• Create a coaching community among child welfare and juvenilejustice supervisors and managers, and
• Bolster an individual’s commitment to using the coach approach and support a coaching culture across all sectors of child welfare
and juvenile justice.
The Coaching Collaboratives are only open to child welfare and juvenile justice supervisors and managers who have completed the Building Coaching Competency online module and attended the two-day instructor-led Building Coaching Competency learning program.
The Coaching Collaborative is an interactive two-hour workshop where learners will have the opportunity to engage in a variety of discussions, activities, and practice sessions that will promote and support the integration of coaching as part of supervision. Ongoing support after the workshop includes but is not limited to on-site technical assistance and ongoing check-ins to support staff with implementation of the coach approach.
“I learned that coaching is an ongoing life skill that can always be utilized.”
