Coaching for Managers

Coaching, as a leadership style, undoubtedly has a positive effect on performance, employee motivation and engagement. Yet often managers will say they don’t have the time to coach – life is too busy, too pressurised and coaching too slow. This workshop provides a simple and effective coaching approach to conversations. This approach can be used effectively for conversations about staff performance and development, problem-solving discussions, and team meetings.

This workshop covers the following topics:

  • The benefits of developing a coaching habit.
  • The coaching approach – “Say less, ask more questions and change the way you lead forever”. (Michael Stanier).
  • The best coaching questions to use.
  • Making coaching part of how you lead.
