Coaching is one of the most powerful methods of developing people and accelerating business and personal performance. In the past people have looked to us as leaders and managers to ‘give them’ all the answers to their problems, being seen as the fountain of all knowledge, often taking on more work ourselves and meaning we end up spending less time leading and more time doing. But what if that isn’t what they really need?

What if the role of a modern leader is about supporting their teams to find the answers for themselves, empowering them, developing them, and building their confidence?

Coaching is an underdeveloped and underutilised skill in many leaders and managers, arguably one of the most important in any managers’ toolkit, and one that can be a game changer, not just for improving performance but also for building trust, engagement and inclusivity at work.

Our one-day online coaching skills course has been designed to help you understand how and when coaching can be used, building your confidence and capability in coaching as a leadership style. It also provides the opportunity for you to extend your network by working with likeminded individuals who also want to get great at coaching.

Who is it for?

Anyone who want to expand their coaching skills, and promote a strong culture of personal empowerment and motivation in their teams.

What will you learn?

We explore when and how to use coaching in the workplace, from short in the moment chats to longer more structured coaching conversations.

You will learn: 

  • What coaching is, what it isn’t, and when to use it
  • The attributes needed to be an effective coach
  • Effective language and listening skills

We will also introduce you to the GROW model for coaching and give you the opportunity to build your abilities through live hands on practise.

What will you be able to do differently?

By the end of the course you will be in a position to:  
  • Know when to use coaching techniques with your team
  • Increase the motivation, drive and resilience of individuals through coaching
  • Improve the performance of weaker team members and reduce their negative effects on others
  • Create a culture of coaching within your organisation or team
  • Utilise a proven coaching conversation model across your team
