Coaching is a conversational activity that aims to support people to learn and develop, therefore enhancing their ability to achieve more of their untapped potential. This way of understanding coaching highlights how it is perfectly aligned with the purpose of educational organisations. By highlighting the „self-directed” nature of the interaction, we are distinguishing coaching from mentoring. Coaching is not about teaching–it is about creating the environment in which people can learn for themselves by connecting with their natural curiosity. Coaching draws on positive psychology and, more recently, neuroscience to help people understand how to stay on track and reach their goals within an educational context. On this course, you will be introduced to coaching as an approach to personal learning and how to be a trustful, motivating, and goal-oriented colleague. This course will take you through the recent science of positive psychology, which aims to ‘understand, test, discover and promote the factors that allow individuals and communities to thrive’ (Sheldon et al., 2000). In particular, positive psychology comprises the scientific exploration of well-being, happiness, flow, personal strengths, compassion, creativity, and characteristics of positive groups and institutions that enable their development. In this sense, rather than focusing solely on the happiness of individuals and on a self-centered approach, positive psychology also concentrates on happiness and flourishing at a group-level. We will look at how individuals and groups flourish and how increasing the well-being of one will have a positive effect on the other. The course reviews the theory and research on coaching and positive psychology but is mainly based on practical application of the tools in the classroom. Every session will incorporate experiential learning and exercises aimed at increasing personal well-being and at facilitating students’ understanding of the fundamental questions in the field. Ultimately, the participants will be able to utilize a more accurate and objective (rather than intuitive) understanding of concepts of coaching and positive psychology such as happiness, well-being, and compassion.
