On Friday, 29th of May 2015 the first multipliers workshop on peer coaching and e-coaching (online-coaching) was presented by Pablo Franzolini (ENZYME) and Carmen Wolf (KIT) to the participants of the Training Center at the ZRSZ (PES Slovenia) in Ljubljana. This was organized by EmployID members Urša Dolinar (ZRSZ), Barbara Gogala (ZSRZ), Sebastijan Primc (ZRSZ), and Gordana Kamnik (ZRSZ), Head of the Training Center. The workshop was a great opportunity for the EmployID project to gather feedback on the peer-coaching concept and to start the process of the peer-coaching concept integration into a PES organization.
After finding out, what participants expect from the workshop, there was a brief introduction into coaching- Next, the EmployID peer coaching core skills (emotional awareness, active listening, powerful questioning, powerful feedback (mirroring)) were explained and paired with exercises, practical examples, and experience reports. Peer coaching was defined and characteristics of this specific coaching setting were elucidated. The EmployID peer coaching concept was tried out on the spot in a small learning groups. A fruitful discussion on how to do coaching online and how to proceed with the cooperation followed the trail.
Prof. Jenny Bimrose and Dr. Alan Brown, University of WarwickOur consultations with PES in UK and Slovenia have resulted in a very clear message from the user engagement process. The very good news is that the PES do want support for identity transformation, but the support they want is slightly different from what we were expecting when we drew up our initial description of work, so all facets of the project will now need to respond in an agile way.
