There has been a lot of discussion about coaching in the industry press during the past couple of years – attitudes towards coaching vary. Some instructors are against change of any kind, others apprehensive that they might be left behind as coaching becomes more popular, some are ‘afraid’ that they might not be able to learn a new and complex method of teaching.
The reality is that in all business, change happens. Those who move with the times prosper - the candlestick maker who moved into oil lamps, the stable owner who learned about ‘horseless carriages’. The driving instructors who learn new and efficient methods will be amongst the modern survivors.
The good news is that shifting to a new approach to teaching does not mean you have to forget everything that you have ever learned about your job, just the opposite in fact. The biggest gains are usually achieved by adding to your ‘training toolkit’, not by throwing all of your hard earned skills away in favour of a ‘magic’ fix all!
Our aim is to help you build upon your present skills as you develop new methods of lesson delivery and new ways to think about teaching – and to do this using proven ideas and methods designed by driving instructors for driving instructors.
By developing your coaching skills you will work towards a position where you can get more of what you want - a better income, more job satisfaction, better training results, a better work life balance or indeed anything else that you aspire to. But you might be wondering how a coaching course can deliver these benefits?
By understanding how to maximise your customers’ ability to learn, you will have the potential to develop a business that stands out above the average – and gains above average rewards.
