Coaching for Managers training course newsletter – What are the benefits of Coaching?

“A masterful coach is someone who is a vision builder and value shaper, not just a technician who helps people reach their goals. A masterful coach is someone who engages and enters into the learning system of a person, business or social institution with the intent of improving it so as to impact people’s ability to perform.”

Robert Hargrove ‘The Four Compass Points of Masterful Coaching

The modern manager knows that coaching is a key element of team development. No longer is management about telling people what to do; effective leaders understand how coaching and development is vital to business success.

Our ‘Coaching for Managers’ one-day training course will show delegates tried and tested methods about 1-2-1 training; executive coaching and how to develop people in order to improve productivity and motivation. We explain through discussion, role-play and case study how to coach staff to achieve the impossible in terms of team development and business performance.

It will also show them how to plan, prepare and implement a coaching programme for induction courses and how to evaluate its success. It also looks at the relationship between coaching, mentoring and training.

Becoming an effective coach is not just a set skills, but a belief that staff development is an integral part of building confidence, trust and motivation in the workplace.

The modern manager needs to know how to develop people. This course shows how to plan, prepare and implement coaching and how to evaluate its success. It also looks at the relationship between coaching, mentoring and training.
