Cooper (business trainer and coach, senior partner at www.learn2grow.cz).
Participants feedback: 1.4 on scale between 1-5 (1-best, 5-worst)
Assessment of speakers:
Dominika - 1.8 on scale between 1-5 (1-best, 5-worst)
Joel - 1 on scale between 1-5 (1-best, 5-worst)
Main thoughts gathered from participants:
- "Coaching is for people who know what they want to achieve but don't know how, whereas counseling is for people who don't know what they want or what to do."
- "During the seminar, I realised that there can be important differencies between coaching,mentoring and counselling and that the attitude of the specialist (coach/mentor) must be based on the client´s needs - if the client comes alone and seeks help or it´s a director who wants to influence his colleagues/team members - and therefore can be really various."
- "Speakers were really well chosen. Location was great. Maybe some more tips on self-coaching would be helpful." Comment from CAA Prague: We are planning special seminar on self-coaching in Czech later this year.
- Inspiration for future: "seminar on leading a team, managing project (alone versus with a team of colleagues)".
