Coaching Skills for Managers

We have done lots of research over the past three years, and we have found that leaders who have the best coaching skills have better business results.”

– Tanya Clemens, V.P. of Global Executive & Organizational Development at IBM

Managers now need to expand on their roles as leaders. A key role of the manager is that of coach. Effective coaching has been proven to bring out the best in people, if facilitated the right way.

Coaching can improve your organisational efficiency as well as give the manager and coachee tremendous momentum for achieving the organisation’s outcomes.

Creating Coaching Conversations in the Workplace

1 Day Introduction to Coaching for Managers

What will you learn?

Coaching conversations offer employees the best possible learning opportunities on the job: high quality listening, powerful questioning and appropriate challenge, all within the context of a trusting relationship.

Leaders that engage in coaching conversations need skills in building trust and relationship and a genuine desire to support others to achieve their potential.

This one day workshop will begin by briefly exploring the differences between Coaching, Mentoring, and other ‘hats’ that a manager may wear with his or her staff, before focusing on developing some of the key skills of:

  • Building rapport & connection;
  • High quality listening;
  • Drawing someone out on their own thinking;
  • checkProviding appropriate challenge;

These skills are invaluable if you are interested in having conversations that support your people to grow and be less dependent on you as a manager.
