A key feature of coaching is learning via the modelling of others, noticing behaviours, attitudes, skills and practice techniques of more experienced colleagues. This offers a shared and collegial development opportunity because we offer learning while engaging with our own practice when we coach. This means we:
- become comfortable being observed in our practice and seeking feedback
- observe others to offer feedback and stretch
- seek feedback from whānau and families about our practice
- work with our partners, explore opportunities for cross-agency supervision, peer support, feedback and joint learning
- understand how quality assurance tools help build practice capability.
