Defining Coaching and Mentoring
The first part of the morning will be spent exploring what coaching and mentoring mean. Participants will also learn the coaching formula and key skill areas.
Coaching Assessment Review
Next, participants will score their pre-assignment and discuss what areas for growth they can identify from it.
Interpersonal Communication Skills
Communicating well is a key aspect of successful coaching. During this session, participants will explore different communication skills, including questioning techniques, probing tools, and listening skills.
Critical Coaching Skills
In this session, participants will examine important coaching skills in small groups, including helping, mentoring, teaching, and challenging skills.
Setting Goals with SPIRIT
This session will share the SPIRIT model for setting goals, as well as ways to help people get on track.
Learning Styles and Principles
We learn in three different ways: by seeing, by hearing, and by doing. In a large group discussion, participants will identify ways to incorporate these methods into coaching. Participants will also learn about the seven principles of adult learning.
The Benefits/Consequences Matrix

The Coaching Model
This session will explore a four-step coaching model that can be applied to any situation.
Giving Effective Feedback
Next, participants will learn about the six elements of effective feedback.
To wrap up the day, participants will examine case studies and offer solutions.
In Person Training
The traditional classroom style of training remains our Most Popular and Most Requested format. On-site training provides participants with an in-person facilitator who will work directly with the team, whether for a single training session or a training series. The Mainstream team will craft and tailor your experience to ensure that your training session is specific, relevant and unique to your audience while meeting your learning objectives. Why settle for ‘pre-formatted, pre-scripted, one-size fits all’ training programs, when our team is able to customize a program that is just right for you? We know that every team has unique learning needs, situations and that they come from a variety of industries, each having unique customer needs and demands. Our programs can be scaled to accommodate time restraints, unique learning needs and even industry or company nuances and barriers.
Don’t settle for a program that gives you almost what you need; our team wants to give you Exactly what you need.
Delivering traditional onsite training results …virtually!
We’ve officially changed the rules and redefined what is possible in the world of soft skills learning. Our unique technology, accompanied by honed delivery methodology, have successfully replicated the traditional classroom-style training environment, allowing it to exist online.
Most online training solutions limit participants’ responses to keystrokes or to single person conversations because -with inferior technology- group discussions become distorted and confusing to follow. Our Virtual Room has eliminated those barriers and encourages learning through meaningful instructor feedback, skills modelling and engaging group discussion, without visual or audio distortion
The Virtual Room is for any organization seeking a flexible substitute to traditional onsite training; whether to lower costs, eliminate unnecessary travel or to simply ease the burden of demanding work schedules.
Lunch & Learn
A Lunch and Learn session is an onsite or virtual learning program with a facilitator-led session sharing valuable information and skills on an area of identified learning interest. It’s a great break away from a traditional training program, allowing your team the opportunity to learn while enjoying their lunch. Due to the limited time, the program focuses on specific learning concepts and skills. It is an interactive session that quickly targets and reveals learning objectives that are predetermined by the training organizer. Lunch & Learn sessions are also great as a training series, providing progressive learning programs for developing skills in a ‘bite-sized’ format.
