Roles of the Life Skills coach

The Canadian Alliance of Life Skills Coaches and Associations (CALSCA) offers the following definition of a Life Skills coach:

“A Life Skills Coach is a trained para-professional who is able to facilitate groups, model and evaluate skills and support individualized learning. Coaches work from their hearts, demonstrating with their lives, their growth, and through their range of emotion and depth of experience, the effective use of the skills that they offer to their participants. Coaches put themselves on the line, human to human (Allen, Mehal, Palmateer, & Sluser, 1995; Conger, 1973, p. 3; Curtiss & Friedman, 1973; Curtiss & Warren, 1973).” [25]

Life Skills coaches’ facilitation tasks include facilitating problem-solving, creating a safe climate/environment, and managing conflict. Life Skills coaches also teach and model helpful group behaviours and balanced self-determined behaviour (BSD), share their own experiences and self disclose as members of the group, and share their resources and knowledge of processes in the service of the group goals. Furthermore, Life Skills coaches help group members accomplish their goals, and they encourage the group to reflect on and discuss its development and ways of working together.[26]

Life Skills coaches have expertise in both content and process and are flexible in moving back and forth between the two.[27] Life Skills coaches are also flexible in their choice of leadership (influencing and intervention) styles; they shift from directive, to harmonizer, to laissez faire to democratic according to the needs and abilities of the group at different stages of its development.[28] The Life Skills coach encourages group members to share the leadership role with him/her as the group matures.[29]

Regardless of the stage of the group’s development, it is the Life Skills coach’s responsibility to ensure that the Life Skills lessons are meeting the group’s needs.[30]

We are zooming down, down, into the tub of an old 50’S WRINGER WASHING MACHINE. Swish, swish, swish. Slowly, the pounding of the machine changes to electronic sounds, and the sight of the sudsy, swirling laundry metamorphoses into a bizarre vortex of swirling colours which gives the feeling that a new universe is being born. As we move through the eddying mass of colours, we hear a deep electro-machine like vioce (VICTORIA), IN THE BEGINING, MAN CREATED GOD.”
Two bolts of lightning strike in a criss-cross manner, creating a gigantic ‘X’ in the sky. “And God said, ‘LET THERE BE DEATH'” – the image freezes. “AND THEN THERE WAS BETH.”. In the centre of the ‘X’ hatches a small creature. The creature forms into a beautiful baby DRAGON that immeidately devours the frozen image and takes us on a journey.

Just finished Director’s Audition Lab given by Actor Lynne Cormack through the  Directors Guild of Canada. Great Lab. Lynne Cormack is not only a Talented Actor but a Talented Instructor. What I found particularly Exciting was how Actors have d Creative Skill, to find “Moments” in a Scene, not only to give life to that Scene but also be able to completely alter that Scene in such a Way that gives you something Awesomely Unique. As a Director it  was humbling. I have taken Acting Lessons in d Past & have found it very Therapeutic but after this Lab I was completely Amazed what a good Actor can do. –Tiwaz 20100521 rro4uaa
“Open to Directors and other Media Professionals who are interested in exploring the “Art of Casting” and who wish to experience the on camera audition process. What makes a good audition? How do I prepare for the audition? On day one, you will be working with a pre assigned audition scene, designed to provide an understanding of the challenges that face actors in the audition room and explore techniques on how to work with the actor “in the moment”. Day two offers “hands on” experience working with professional actors learning how to direct scenes to bring out the actors best performance.” (from Brochure)
