Learning Design Program: Coaching Conversations

Coaching Conversations Level 2 Registration Now Open!

This learning design program, “Coaching Conversations,” is meant for educators who have a heart for people to be seen and heard; a heart to help both students and colleagues see movement in their lives through facilitating intentional conversations.

Teachers can play a pivotal role in the mental health of their students and colleagues. They can not only help students and their colleagues understand and accept their feelings and thoughts, but they can also assist in developing healthy habits towards mental wellness. By asking constructive questions and holding up a “mirror,” the educator can help their students and colleagues can dig into their heart and mind, questioning patterns of emotions, thoughts, and behaviour.


…honours the individual and sees them as image bearers of God affected by depravity but created with potential and gifts that bring healing and restoration.

…calls forth the greatness that God has placed into each one of us, allowing us to see life from the lens of what is possible and the choices we have.

…allows recipients to develop the skills necessary to become more self-aware.

…integrates the skills of listening, curiosity, self-regulation, forward movement and “being with” another that allows the client to feel seen, heard, and understood.

…equips individuals to realize they do not need to be stuck.

…empowers the individual to create an action plan that resonates with their unique skills, abilities, and experiences.

"The delivery was excellent, content well presented, and ample opportunities were given to see the skills modelled and for us to try them as well."

The King’s Christian Collegiate Coaching Core Values:

We are made in God’s image – sinful by nature, redeemed by Christ 

  • Psalm 139:14 (NLT), “Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it!”
  • Ephesians 2:5 (NLT), “that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God’s grace that you have been saved!)

Two are better than one – it is in community that we can work through challenges and celebrate victories

  • Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 (NLT), “Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble.”
  • Proverbs 27:17 (NLT), “As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend.”

Wholistic Focus – the individual is created with a heart, mind, soul; coaching focuses on the whole person. When we understand our “wholeness” we live into our created order and have the capability of loving and serving God more fully.

  • Matthew 22:37 (NLT), “Jesus replied, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind’.”

What we do comes from who we are - coach the person, not the problem

  • Acts 17:28, “For in him we live and move and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring’.”
