Why coaching?

Manager as Coach

Businesses are learning that developing talent is not optional, it is a business necessity. There is now an increasing expectation that line managers will coach their teams.

Learning and personal development is essential when it comes to improving the employee experience. Research has shown that when you provide your employees with opportunities for growth, you will be rewarded with boosted employee engagement, and increased staff retention.

The aim of our Manager as Coach workshop is to teach managers how to equip their people with the tools, knowledge and opportunities to develop themselves. That's what good coaching is all about!

Coaching doesn’t need to take a great deal of your time. If you invest five per cent of your energy and focus on coaching your people you will yield healthy returns. When it's done well, coaching brings a number of benefits to the individuals being coached, the managers doing the coaching, and the organisation overall.

What will we work on during the Manager as Coach workshop?

  • Get to know a little bit about the history and development of coaching
  • Gain a shared understanding of the value and benefit of coaching in the workplace for you as a leader and manager, for the organisation, and for the people you coach
  • Consider what coaching is, and what it is not; and the role of the coach
  • Understand why it’s important to establish boundaries, and ensure integrity and confidentiality – the principle of contracting
  • Learn and practice essential core coaching skills
  • Explore practical solutions-based coaching tools and techniques you can use to plan and structure effective coaching discussions with your people

By the end of the workshop, you will be prepared to face, and deal with, dilemmas and challenges when coaching your people.
