February 14-16, 2017
Irvine Ranch Conservancy, Irvine, CA
Instructor: Emily Jacobs
Have you ever wondered how to be a better coach for your staff? Are you looking for new coaching tools such as language and methods to review your interpreters? Do you struggle with the difference between coaching and supervision? If so, this new 3-day workshop is for you! Building upon the requests from our membership for more management skills training, NAI offers this course to give you a chance to both learn and hone your coaching skills.
During this course participants will study and practice skills including how to review a program, coaching styles and preferences and giving verbal feedback. Throughout the offering, participants will take part in practicums designed to put new skills into practice, including coaching live interpreters.
Come join us for this new, exciting training opportunity!
