As we strive to provide the very best of service to all families of children with a disability, we aim to become better at implementing current models of Best Practice. To achieve this, Practitioners need to develop a mindset of true partnership in the way they work with families and other stakeholders. The “Expert Coach Approach” teaches practitioners how share information, without “telling” people what to do.

Current surveys completed by a significant number of ECIS managers have identified a strong need for staff to be trained in coaching and collaboration.

In this workshop, Practitioners will be experience and learn about Coaching and the Core Coaching Competencies developed by the International Coaching Federation and learn how to integrate these into current models of coaching practice in the Early Intervention.

Learning Outcomes:

At the completion of this workshop participants will be able to:

Apply Powerful rapport building strategies
Build confidence and empower others to take action
Use new ways to facilitate ownership
Move forward with complex clients
Participants will enjoy:

A relaxed environment to test these strategies.
Opportunity to share thoughts and ideas with other practitioners
Time to reflect on their own practice.
Increased confidence to put these skills into practice.
The option to embed the learning through 1:1 coaching after the workshop
Who is this workshop designed for?

This highly relevant, practical and mindset-changing course is designed for Early Intervention Practitioners, including therapists, educators, managers and team leaders who are working in a range of Early Intervention settings, in Transdisciplinary and NDIS models of service.

Best workshop I’ve ever attended.

Currently she runs a highly successful part time Private Occupational Therapy and Coaching practice, as well as working in a Not for Profit organization as an Early Intervention Therapy Team Leader for families with children with a disability.

Jacqui facilitates, trains and coaches Early Intervention Practitioners to work in “true partnership” with families and colleagues in a way that engages, empowers and builds the confidence and capacity of people to achieve the outcomes of their choice.

In addition, Jacqui coaches parents of children with a disability to work effectively with and advocate for the best outcome for their child. Jacqui is also skilled at facilitating parents to manage stress and cope more effectively with the challenges life produces. Jacqui is focused on facilitating parents to respond to these challenges in a way that will positively impact on the health and wellbeing of both themselves and others in their family.

Jacqui has a keen interest in the strategies people employ to motivate themselves to achieve the outcomes they wish for, in their lives. She has extensively studied the theory and practice behind this aspect of human behavior and has applied this knowledge in her personal life. Jacqui has used these strategies to conquer running 5 marathons, including the 2011 New York Marathon. She completed the Oxfam 100km walk in under 20 hours and continues to participate in both physical and intellectual activities that take her well out of her comfort zone.

Throughout her career, Jacqui has assisted people of all ages to identify realistically what they wanted from life. She has used her skills to identify what information; skills or resources they needed to achieve their goals and together with the client, developed a targeted coordinated plan of action. Becoming an accredited coach was a natural progression for Jacqui and has complemented her qualification skill set.

Jacqui has a holistic and balanced approach to her life and her work and has made it her life passion to help others to do the same. Her well-developed creative and lateral thinking skills are ideal, attributes which have been utilized to produce realistic and practical outcomes.
