Coaching - the manager as coach

The benefits of a coaching style for managers are widely recognised: more motivated staff, more open communication, greater learning and development and, ultimately, better services.

Coaching - the manager as coach

Managers need to learn the skills of coaching, and this intensive one-day course is designed to develop those skills and give managers the tools to support themselves in their continuing development. The course is highly participative and includes opportunities to practise these new skills, as well as the opportunity to observe the facilitator and others. Tools and techniques are introduced, but the focus of the day is on practical application.

Key elements of the course:

  • Pros and cons of a coaching style as a manager
  • Developing a coaching approach to one-to-ones
  • Coaching models and coaching practice
  • Recognising your areas for development as a coach
  • Situational leadership and blended styles
  • Dealing with challenging behaviour through coaching
  • Creating a coaching culture within the team.

Running this course in-house enables us to work with you to develop self-supporting groups with the tools and skills to ensure continuing development, and to roll out their learning to others.

Who should attend?

All managers who want to ensure they are getting the best from their teams; who want to develop high performing teams with open and honest communication and a focus on being effective; managers keen to extend their range of management styles; HR managers/colleagues responsible for supporting managers across their organisations; first-line supervisors/team leaders keen to develop their leadership and management styles.
