Coaching for managers

Learn how to enable your team members to discover their full potential

Very few people or teams are able to achieve their optimum performance without help; often they tend to fall to the lowest common denominator of performance rather than try for the highest. 

This course gives you the coaching skills to motivate, develop competencies and guide your team members to reach their best. Skills developed include: establishing trust, asking questions, engaging in empathetic listening and giving and receiving feedback.

Course overview

Through our coaching for managers training, we unpack the topic using interactive, participatory and step-by-step procedures which define coachee needs, learning styles, ways to motivate and plan the journey together towards agreed goals. Taught skills are continually practised.

Participants also create their own development plan to become successful coaches, and hone their understanding through group discussions, role plays and coaching one another.
