Coaching Skills for Managers Training

A 1-Day Workshop for Busy Leaders and Managers
If you want to develop your people to deliver business results.

Coaching has become the ‘must-have’ skill for managers and leaders.
For those who need to motivate and influence employees and other stakeholders.
Yet the soft-skills involved are subtle, especially in complex and fast-moving environments, where everybody is stretching themselves to squeeze in more activities and projects.

Do you ever find yourself?

  • Asked to solve people’s problems when you are under pressure?
  • Trying to support a number of people but trying not to take on their issues?
  • Wanting to delegate more effectively?
  • Trying to give authority, develop responsibility and ownership in your people
    • All of this without telling them what to do all the time
    • Then having to contantly check that they have done it

Good News! Our Coaching Skills for Managers workshop will help you achieve all of the above !
