Open Workshop: Coaching skills fast-track
The role of the senior manager doesn’t get any easier, does it? We’re in tough times, a worrying economy, and organisations are looking for more commitment from everyone as a way of coping with changing employment markets and global competition.
So how can you motivate your team and colleagues? Is there a way of helping them to be more responsive, to cope with everyday challenges better? By helping them, will you be able to help yourself, too?
There’s no doubt that using a coaching style as part of management skills can produce significant results. And, learning how to use a coaching approach can prepare line managers for leadership roles.
The most successful organisations of the future will be those that can bring out the best in their people. Wrapping a powerful coaching style into your management will make a significant difference to your own, and your organisation’s, success.

What senior managers have said about this programme:
“The course was one of the best I have been on, and I hope the organisation is able to roll it out further”
“Great to see coaching as something integral to building up team performance which doesn’t have to fit into a formal ‘performance management’ slot”
“I feel reinvigorated about being able to use coaching, and talk to others about the techniques and benefits”
As a senior manager you are undoubtedly faced with a considerable workload and, in the current climate, a concerned and pre-occupied workforce. In times like these, people want others to make decisions, become needy for micro-management, and worry about whether they are doing the right thing. Which means they turn to you for the smallest decisions about what they should do.
But you only have so many hours in the day to do your job and you’re finding that much of your time is taken up managing others when you want to be getting on with the more strategic aspects of your role.
You probably use a number of different communication skills already: coaching, advising, directing and telling and it’s not always easy to know what works most effectively to empower others to think and act for themselves - and give you some time back to do your job.
This Coaching Skills Fastrack programme is a practical and pragmatic look at how coaching can help you be a more effective manager in tough times. You’ll get really clear about what coaching is, and isn’t. When is it best to use coaching as a skill? Where does it fit with mentoring and counselling?
The day is about raising your coaching skill-set to get others thinking and acting for themselves – intelligently. It will also cover how your personal style and preferences play into how you interact with others, and how to do so more effectively.
You will leave the day confident in your coaching ability, able to judge when coaching is the best method to use to communicate to and influence others, and you’ll be ready to empower others to do their jobs well.
What you'll get from taking part (the deliverables)
- Increased confidence in your coaching ability
