Coaching skills have become an important tool in the armoury of great leaders and people that work with developing others as they encourage empowerment and self-belief. This one day course solidifies that approach and puts structure and clarity around coaching behaviours, whilst demonstrating the ability to coach without masses of paperwork and ‘rules’.
Coaching has become a critical element of team development and yet it is rarely understood and often implemented poorly. These training course materials will provide your participants with a core understanding of the methods of coaching and give them core skills that will enable them to practically carry out coaching in the workplace.
It moves away from the viewpoint that coaching must be process driven and bureaucratic and will help your participants appreciate that coaching is an everyday occurrence that, when performed correctly, can be enlightening and fun.
