Coach Training for Line Managers
More than anything else, our approach is praised for its experiential nature and direct relevance to line managers. We are developing a line manager so that they can confidently include a coaching approach in their way of working – we are not attempting to develop an executive coach. We have other programs that do that!
We support the participants to start ‘thinking, listening, and acting like a coach’, providing them with some practical, easy-to-use coaching techniques and models to use alongside their management and leadership skills.
Our approach raises the confidence and commitment of participants to go back to work and coach their team in their daily work. Participants leave the workshop:
- excited about coaching
- ready to start a coaching conversation
- with a belief in their ability to coach and develop their staff
- clear on the benefits for themselves, not just the coachee
Without these outcomes, however great the coaching material, it will not be applied.
