Learner Outcomes: 

Upon successful completion of the learning experience, students will be able to: understand and explain how coaching differs from counseling, advising or mentoring; observe, analyze and practice specific peer coaching competencies; assess how other people coach and offer them constructive feedback; demonstrate the ways in which coaching-related skills can be used in the workplace; reflect on their strengths and growth areas in each coaching competency area; and connect what they are learning about coaching to their learning experiences in other classes and at work.


Through this experiential course, students  learn to cultivate greater self-awareness, listening and communication skills, and expand their emotional intelligence, mental resilience, and social intelligence. Students practice these skills through peer coaching, self-reflection, 1:1 coaching with a professionally credentialed coach, in group discussion, and in the workplace. The major topics and emphasis of this course focuses on self-leadership. 

Credit recommendation:
