As companies and organisations develop and progress their teams and leadership capacity, the ability to be able to use ‘Coaching Language and to hold Coaching Conversations’ is becoming increasingly in demand. In December 2019, the Harvard Business Review stated it clearly:
Rapid, constant, and disruptive change is now the norm, and what succeeded in the past is no longer a guide to what will succeed in the future. Twenty-first-century managers simply don’t (and can’t!) have all the right answers. To cope with this new reality, companies are moving away from traditional command-and-control practices and toward something very different: a model in which managers give support and guidance rather than instructions, and employees learn how to adapt to constantly changing environments in ways that unleash fresh energy, innovation, and commitment.
The role of the manager, in short, is becoming that of a coach.
Coaching Skills for Managers and Team Leaders is a 2 day programme designed to equip managers or team leaders with key competencies to enable them to hold effective ‘coaching conversations’, resulting in more effective management, decision making and team development.
The workshop is participatory, interactive and enjoyable, with deep learning opportunities and space for skills practice. Theory and Learning will be integrated into practice with feedback as you develop your skills over two days. Coaching demonstrations on real life scenarios will also be given as examples of how ‘coaching conversations’ can result in effective change in your organisation or company.
This programme can be delivered in-person when possible or virtually using Zoom. Virtual training is as impactful as in-person and allows for effective participation by participants.
