Our offerings are unique in that unlike other training providers, we offer post-workshop coaching to support the attendee in transitioning their new learning into new behaviours.
The Coaching Manager/Leader
Leadership / management can be a really tough role to be in. Some leaders/managers have such a sharp or competitive edge that the needs of their people can become secondary. For others, honouring people can be a challenge due to their past experiences, training (or lack of), or the limiting or harsh management style of a company’s executive leadership or corporate culture.
For organizations that seek to create and/or foster a positive and empowering, “helping your people be the best they can be” approach – where challenges, obstacles and goal-setting is handled with a coach-like approach – this group of people will statistically have a much great chance of achievement.
“The Coaching Manager/Leader” program is designed to assist, enhance and empower those into the role of manager/ team leader to adopt and bring to reality this type of attitude, energy and personality for the greater success of ALL involved!
This program shares ideas, the “do’s and don’ts” of coaching along with real life examples that demonstrate the best ways to be coach-like in a management environment. It introduces you to the concept and skills of being coach-like and provides an experiential learning platform to immediately practice the skills and concepts.
Becoming an effective coach takes time. To truly master the skill of a ‘great coach’, and become a coach-like manager, it is necessary to convert the theory into practice. Continual practice of the skills, as well as continual feedback from the people you work with transitions the learning into a new way of managing.
