What are the benefits of online guidance?
The Internet is an integral part of our lives, and we are becoming increasingly familiar with online communication—the fast development of online communication tools offers new opportunities to guide or coach your clients and employees. In addition, your clients will more often request online guidance solutions. Online guidance and coaching provide a valuable addition to (and can sometimes even replace) face-to-face conversations. E-coaching goes beyond technology; it requires various skills to apply online coaching effectively and efficiently and reap its potential benefits.
Working time- and place-independent is an obvious (cost-effective) benefit. But the power of online guidance reaches further. A significant advantage of online guidance is frequent contact between the professional and client; this creates a lively interaction where engagement and commitment increase. While also gaining quick access to the core. Writing has a reflective effect on the client. These and other distinctive elements can lead to an acceleration in the development process. Additional use of AI, by means of coachbots, can further promote client autonomy.
What does Masterclass E-coaching have to offer?
Starting with online coaching/e-coaching requires awareness of its possibilities and limitations. The emphasis in this Masterclass is on text-based coaching. In this additional form of coaching, verbal communication is excluded, which requires extra care in interpreting and delivering messages. To apply online coaching effectively, you need the right language skills; what is the effect of your use of language, what is your client's core message, and how do you adapt your speech to that of your client?
Who is it for?
The Masterclass is aimed at coaches, career counsellors, HR(D)- professionals, counsellors, guidance experts and supervisors who want to learn how online guidance/e- coaching can be successfully implemented.

Book: E-Coaching Getting started with online and blended coaching
