Sign up for CWC Re-Entry Coach Training
Re-entry Coaching is about skills and knowledge acquisition. Although it may involve the personal, the primary focus is professional. In many ways, coaching is akin to teaching. It seeks to bring the coachee to a different level of competency. The focus is on concrete issues that relate to an individual’s successful and sustainable re-entry. What is necessary for success is for the coach to have credibility as an ‘expert’ and be able to communicate effectively with the coachee.
