Comprehensive course analysis
Who should attend
It is never too late or too early in a leadership career to develop coaching skills and we expect our cohorts to be a vibrant mix of new and very experienced leaders.
The program will be particularly useful for leaders of teams who are grappling with complex challenges in high pressure environments and looking for a practical way to develop their people.
About the course
Coaching Skills for Leaders equips participants with the skills and awareness to have effective coaching conversations, enabling people to bring the very best of themselves to their work, even in very challenging contexts.
This program makes coaching accessible – so that participants can hold a coaching conversation in any situation where it is needed, helping to build a coaching culture in their team and organization.
Our relational model of coaching has the power to transform the effectiveness of individuals and teams, by helping leaders to build learning relationships with colleagues to get things done.
Learning Outcomes for Participants & Organization:
The one key learning outcome is that participants will be ready to hold an effective coaching conversation in any situation where it is needed.
With that in mind we use the 'PAIR' model as an integrative framework:
Presence: leaders will learn to show up fully to coaching conversations in a way that forms a collaborative relationship
Agreement: they will know how to explicitly agree what will be genuinely helpful and impactful for the coachee
Interventions: participants will be able to draw on a range of options to help the people they coach – and as a result coaching conversations have real impact on what matters
Review: they will be able to identify with their coachee what has changed post coaching (and what has not!)
