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.



The workshop will be held at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum in Tucson, AZ. There is no specific host hotel, however there are a number of hotels nearby. The host also recommends the Gilbert Ray & Catalina State Park for camping.


Each day mid-morning and mid-afternoon snacks will be provided.  All other meals are on your own and there are several restaurants a short driving distance away.


The nearest airport is the Tucson International Airport. Please do not plan to leave our course any earlier than 5pm on April 16th to catch your flight.


$350 USD for NAI members/$425 USD for non. Additional members from the same institution all receive $25 off for each additional staff member sent.  Please contact Emily Jacobs at ejacobs@interpnet.com or (970) 420-1032 for more information.
