This workshop will discuss Viola Spolin's original sidecoaching technique as a teaching tool for players and explore its connection to similar techniques in coaching athletes, students, artists, and others. The presenter will share research regarding the effectiveness of sidecoaching across several disciplines and demonstrate how she has adapted the technique to guide training participants through simulations and prepare professionals to navigate their most difficult conversations. Applications for medical, educational, social work, business, and other fields will be discussed. Participants will learn how to introduce sidecoaching into their AI practice and have an opportunity to practice their new skills.
