By developing your line managers into effective coaches, you can help set your teams up for success. Coaching conversations can help staff meet their immediate needs and longer-term aspirations by aligning the contribution of individuals to the goals and objectives of the organisation.
Instil a coaching culture throughout your organisation
This course will enable your managers to use a coaching style of management, practising active listening, asking insightful questions and providing effective feedback to help others explore their effectiveness in the workplace and how they can increase impact.
Your line managers will learn how to constructively challenge performance, with a focus on improvement and responsibility. Using the GROW model of coaching, they will be taught to structure coaching conversations and enable staff to identify appropriate solutions and actions themselves.
