Coaching Homework that Transforms

As a child, I didn't particularly enjoy homework although I loved to learn.  Thankfully, that love of learning is still with me today.  The people who come participate in group coaching are there to learn and it's the job of the group coach to ensure transformation occurs, too.

Listen to this excerpt from the 90 Minute Mastery course entitled, Evolutionary Handouts: Homework that Helps Learners Evolve.  It's all about perspective when you create coaching homework that transforms the learners in your group.

You know, I have attended so many instructions that never ever give you homework. I am convinced that this is the only way to develop true skills. Thanks for this post.

My coach always gives me homework - he wants to make sure I've heard what was said and I'm putting things into action. Realistically homework is just a way to demonstrate you understand your new skill or whatever without the teacher being around to guide you.

I wish I had time for a seminar and homework. Some days I feel like I am drowning in work and can barely keep my head above water.

I've heard that you rock at what you do, Wendy. You are awesome!

Giving homework is one thing. Getting your participants to complete it is something else althogether. Any tips on that subject?

Hi Melodieann,
That's the value of assigning homework that's engaging and inspires your learners to act. Consider "thought" exercises or baby action steps as a starting point. Before you know it, your learners will come back to you telling you exactly how your homework assignment changed their lives. How kewl is that?!
