Coaching Skills: Use of language

Next, please read chapter 4 of Jenny Rogers' 'Coaching Skills: A handbook' on language in coaching.

The chapter has been provided in your reading pack. If you would like to view the whole book, an e-book version is available via the University library using this link (opens a new window).

Over the coming weeks, consider your own use of questions. Take time to note down the questions you use:

  • In everyday conversation
  • In helping conversations
  • When coaching your students?

What patterns or habits in your use of questions can you see? We will discuss these on the teaching days and you can also comment below to reflect on your practice
