“The balance between theory and practical information was perfect. In other courses I have attended I have felt the practical parts have been added in with no real purpose but I could see the benefit of every practical exercise. I would love to attend more courses like this.”

Benefits of our coaching skills for managers training programmes

  • create a culture of empowerment & engagement
  • build even more effective relationships with your employees

Be an even better manager with our coaching skills training

Just think for a moment…when have you been at your absolute best, and what was that like?  Also, take a moment to think about the most inspirational manager or leader that you know.  That person who seems to be able to get so much more out of the people they work with.  How about that teacher that seems to be able to get extraordinary results from those in their class?  When you think about these experiences, what do you notice?  What do they have in common?  Freedom, growth, responsibility, challenge, feedback, belief, a high-level relationship?

Coaching is a skill, approach, and mindset that develops others through their own resourcefulness and builds upon their capabilities.  The process of coaching is a powerful one.  It develops self-sufficient, confident, and self-directed problem-solvers.  What does that mean for you?  More time for your managers to lead your business, higher levels of engaged and motivated employees, and an innovative and forward-looking workforce. 

What will your coaching skills for managers course look like?

Our Coaching skills for managers programmes are focused on your workplace combining a great mix of coaching theory, a bit of NLP, and a lot of deliberate practice  You will leave with the knowledge and understanding needed to engage in coaching conversations; both formally and informally.  Asking the right questions is a big part of coaching. You will leave with the frameworks and confidence needed to structure coaching conversations, whether it is a focused coaching session, part of an appraisal conversation or simply standing by the water cooler.  

Typically, this Coaching Skills for Managers training course is two consecutive days.  If you’d like to make it three days by either including the Myers Briggs Type Indicator, or simply more time for practice, you can! You can also support the development of your managers and their new skills with our facilitated coaching forums.

“Great experiential experience. Learning skills that will support our cultural journey. I clearly now understand the principles of coaching, the difference between giving advice, mentoring and coaching, and have learned new tools to use not just in the work environment but for personal growth and understanding as well.  This was well worth the time and I would advise others to invest – it will make your job a lot easier!”
