Coaching Skills for Managers

Coaching skills are essential managers because they need to use these skills to help develop each of their team members to achieve maximum performance. This programme is a two day, highly experiential process designed to develop a manager’s ability to get the most from their people by adopting a coaching and empowering style of leadership.

We ensure your leaders understand what coaching is and what it means for the organisation in terms of great results and positive team culture. From there it becomes about keeping people motivated and dedicated to the shift in behaviour, ensuring they understand how it aligns with the vision and values of the organisation. Therefore ensuring they are up to committing to the process, truly committing, and not just paying lip service.
