Core coaching skills workshop

Manager as Coach

Coach your employees to excellence - empower your teams, provide them with opportunities for growth, and see employee engagement and productivity soar

Why coaching?

Developing talent is not optional

Workplace coaching has been shown to improve the performance – and wellbeing – of managers and their teams. In the current economic climate, your people expect their employee experience to be the best it can be. Line Managers are increasingly tasked with coaching their people but are often at a loss as to where to start.

Our Manager as Coach Workshop is designed to empower managers to give their people the tools, knowledge, confidence and opportunities to develop themselves.

Coaching is an effective leadership tool. It enables managers to cultivate your employees’ abilities by demonstrating a genuine interest, and by understanding their aspirations, strengths and needs. It empowers your people to find their own solutions.

It can also be used to create meaningful feedback and development plans for your teams which enhances that all important employee experience.
