Experiential Learning Report (Using Kolb’s cycle as your structure)Executive summaryWhen defining the process of getting coached by a professional coach, is the teaching or training or a process of development in which an individual gets advice and support from professional on learning on how to achieve good results or goals in life. The person who is receiving coaching is known as the client or coachee Kolb, D. And Fry, R. 1975). Occasionally the term coaching may be used in an informal relationship between an individual who has good experience and expertise than the coachee who is being given advice and guidance on how to handle a situation.

Coaching can also have the same meaning as mentoring. There are many methods models and methodologies that are used in mentoring or coaching, they are designed in such a way that they provide thinking and new learning skills and behaviours meant to uplift personal augmentation or professional progression. There are also coaching that provide the coachee an improvement in a physical challenge for example in a sport (Williams, P. 2007).

There was a dire need to work on my skills development in others areas including rapport, ways of challenging, preparation and planning of activities the most needed skills is the questioning and setting of objectives.

I did learned as a coach there are some things I needed to understand more deeply, since the first week while trying to developed my competence and enhance deeply in the areas that I needed more development. Continuing to increase competencies in areas that I had already poses was very important, this prevent from losing the competence that I already have (Kolb, D. And Fry, R.1975). The preparation and planning were optimized with a better time management; this enabled me to do more research that is enough before every coaching session.

Questioning, challenging, rapport, and objective setting are competencies that are highly integrated in with one another. Thus, I found as I worked at developing these skills they were mutually supportive. I had to increase my ability in these areas by working hard on the skills that I had already mastered and using my already high level of competence at listening and empathising, using as an example helped me a lot in developing a more beneficial rapport with my interlocutors (Williams, P. 2007). In order to make sure that I developed as much as possible in the role of a coach as well as making the most beneficial difference to other people (Turman, 2001).
