Coaching the Dying and the Grieving – for experienced coaches

End of life coaching is a method of caring for the dying and the grieving which recognizes the patient/client as the expert on their own experience.  Through powerful questions that help draw them out and deep listening of whatever they share, we can create an even safer place where they can express their normal feelings.  Transformation occurs not by telling them how they should act or feel, but by walking with them where they are.

A day for experienced coaches:

  • Why use a coach approach with the dying and the grieving?
  • How can we treat the coachees as the experts when they have never died before and may have never been taught how to grieve?
  • What are the 4 basics of end of life coaching?
  • What are the differences between life coaching and end of life coaching?
  • How can we make our organizations, businesses, or places of worship end of life “safe”?
  • How the dying teach us how to live each day
  • Why is follow-up with the grieving so important?

If it is useful, we can issue CPD certificates at the end of the day.  Don Eisenhauer PCC will be leading the training using the ICF Core Coaching Competencies.

The day for coaches does not assume any previous experience of being with people who are grieving or dying although it will also be very useful for those who do.  You need to have at least 26 hours coach training.  If you’re new to coaching, the other events will be more useful.
