Integrative Coaching Training (Dr. Christopher Rauen)

The RAUEN coaching training programme trains you to become a coach on a part-time basis and with a practical orientation. Within one year you will learn the know-how to independently carry out coaching processes and develop your individual coaching concept. The integrative further education under the direction of Dr. Christopher Rauen and Andreas Steinhübel is methodologically oriented, i.e. different consulting approaches are used instead of being fixed on one procedure.

Coaching Training (Almut Probst)

The participants learn a basic format for each coaching session in order to be able to successfully manage the first coaching sessions. To work out the coach's concern clearly and to formulate it in a solution-oriented way is an important methodical step in the coaching discussion. We introduce the systemic-constructivist way of working and attitude. In order for the new to unfold in the coaching process, the appreciation of the old is necessary. It is therefore important that the coach has an attitude that is free of judgement and appreciation, that draws attention to the potential, so that it becomes free for the people and the task.
