A 1 day course, held at venues across the UK
This introduction to coaching skills workshop will provide leaders and managers with the confidence to use coaching in their day to day interaction with colleagues or clients. We will introduce the role and purpose of coaching and enable participants to practice and receive feedback on a range of effective coaching tools. The course will also explore the skills associated with coaching and facilitating in the team environment, and how coaching can be used to engage colleagues, align goals, and provide a method to manage difficult conversations.
For participants with more experience of coaching, we will differentiate our approach to ensure they benefit from some current thought leadership in coaching practice, informed by up to date organisational research relating to the effectiveness of coaching in enhancing individual and team performance. This will include a consideration of coaching different personality types, and how to identify and coach people with diverse strengths and capabilities within the team environment.

Alex was faultless! The day I spent with him was excellent. His delivery was first class, he had in-depth knowledge on theories, exercises and industries. All the other attendees got involved with the course and this benefited everyone. I would definitely recommend this course to others!
