About the course

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.

Understanding from the core of the mindset as a coach is imperative. As a mentor, participants will seek to understand what it is a person needs in order to get better at whatever it is they are doing. Through the use of the 3X4 Coaching Model, participants will learn how to effectively utilize the three plays in order to tap into the four core communication skills.

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.

  • Communicate high expectations, respect and caring for your employees
