Learn how to be a better leader and empower your teams to grow and thrive by adopting the coaching approach and mindset.  Our closest synonym to Leadership is about influence and how better to positively lead people through coaching.


Organisations are moving away from command and control and “traditional” styles of leadership and instead are demonstrating a leadership style which adopts a coaching approach.  Leading in this way will help shape a coaching culture in your business – the leader as coach recognises the benefits of coaching for themselves and members of their team.


A leader as coach will be a positive role model in the organisation and one that empowers their teams to be focused on their personal and professional development.  Coaching allows time for the discussion of new ideas and ways of working.


As a leader your role is to support and develop your people to be at their best and coaching does exactly that.  It’s not a tool to be wheeled in and wheeled out under the guise of “performance management” – this is the way to improve performance, engagement and retention.

Most Managers and Leaders report that they don’t feel skilled enough to be a coach so this course if a prime opportunity to turn coaching into a strength – it’s not about micro-managing, it’s abut supporting people to be autonomous, innovative and focused on their strengths to make great contribution in the business.
