How it works


Coaching skills are essential for leaders who want to bring out the best in their people.

Coaching for High Performance is a two-day workshop, with 3 months of support, that equips managers with the skills, tools, and mindset of world-class coaches. Coaching is a way of thinking and interacting with people that communicates high expectations, respect and caring.

Learn the skills of world-class coaches

Learning coaching skills is the best way to dramatically increase the commitment level and performance of your employees and team members. Good coaches are always interested in strengthening and empowering the people they coach, pushing them to grow, develop and become better at whatever it is they do.

Combining first-hand examples from both the sport and corporate worlds with an innovative coaching framework, Coaching for High Performance provides a clear picture of what good coaches do and shares their tools and techniques.

This 2-day workshop will enable you to:

  • Communicate high expectations, respect and caring for your employees
  • Learn the concepts and skills of a coaching style of management
  • Build commitment and get results
  • Integrate new concepts into an existing repertoire of leadership skills
  • Develop your organization's "next generation"

Coaching Companion

The included Coaching Companion provides three months of online support delivered via email, reinforcing the tools learned in the workshop. Participants are given specific ‘homework’ in applying each of the core skill sets of the Coaching For High Performance model, guided in reflecting on their application, and provided with additional resources for deepening their development.
