By supporting your leaders in developing a coaching style, you'll have the opportunity to help your people feel valued and heard.

If that wasn't enough, our course will assist you in embracing a learning culture.
About Our Developing a Coaching Style Course
Our Developing a Coaching Style course is an introduction to using a coaching style in day-to-day leadership and management. A coaching style has proven to be a highly effective style for engagement and empowerment, but also for open accountability and honest conversations.
Coaching has learning at its core that not only seeks to improve current performance, but also to develop the capacity and capability to improve future performance as well.
During this course, leaders will be given time to experience coaching others and also be coached by others. There will additionally be time to observe other people coach as a technique for further developing personal coaching styles and giving feedback.
The aim of this course is for leaders to be able to seamlessly integrate a coaching style into their everyday leadership and management.
"We thought the balance between practice and theory was good, and it felt like the exercises were well adapted and relevant to our work."
