The Activity

There are two boards in the pack ideal for six players at each. Individuals move around the board picking up cards that give hints and tips. They also identify areas where they may benefit from coaching and in the course of the activity receive mini coaching sessions from each other. Gets across some key issues – it’s a two way process; it involves ‘open’ questions; a person’s feelings must be acknowledged; do not tell; do not judge. An ideal introduction to the topic.

Trainer's Role

  • Set up the boards, cards and playing pieces
  • Explain the rules (PowerPoint) of the activity
  • Observe teams playing the game and make notes for feedback later
  • At the end lead a Debrief consolidating the learning (PowerPoint notes available).

Trainer’s Notes contain full guidance and a mass of back-up information on coaching skills.

Used on an Introduction to Coaching Programme for Managers & Supervisors. The best learning points were: self awareness of lack of listening and addressing cultural issues. Practical, practise activity, fun yet insightful, with many possibilities for adaption and development of further issues & actions.

A. Martin, David McLean Holdings Ltd

I used 'The Coaching Game' most recently on a 'Performance Coach' training programme for several clients as an introduction and learning of what coaching is all about (with line managers, Directors, Senior Managers – anyone who runs a team). Learning points include open questions; rapport; sensory acuity; flexibility; coaching not easy; coachee talks more than coach; coachee has the answers and the coach asks the questions. I use it on every training course involving coaching. Excellent as an 'accelerated learning' tool – first class!

S. Harris, Tuesday’s Training Company

I use 'The Coaching Game' as part of our excellence programme for managers and supervisors and it works really well.
