Who should attend

The programme is designed to improve a leader’s coaching confidence at all levels and functions of an organization and is intended for managers or leaders with relevant professional experience who needs to use the skills and strategies of coaching to drive superior organizational results.

It is particularly suitable for:

  • HR professionals who want to move from operational positions to become strategic business partners
  • Leaders who want to improve communication, trust, and engagement with their team
  • Individuals who want to change their leadership style to a leader coach one and contribute to the development of coaching culture within their organization

About the course

In a world with rapid, constant, and uncertain disruptive change (VUCA – volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity), managers need to give support and guidance rather than instructions, and employees learn to adapt to a changing environment in a way that releases new energy, innovation, and commitment. Managers at all levels need to acquire and deploy coaching skills. An effective leader-as-a-coach asks questions instead of providing answers, supports employees instead of judging them, and facilitates their development instead of dictating what must be done.

Programme Objectives

The focus of this experiential programme is on participation and practical experience rather than lecture, with numerous opportunities to practice leader-as-coach skills and receive feedback on these newly acquired skills. The programme will focus on building skills to unlock the potential of self and others, leading yourself to lead others and transform your environment. This highly personalized programme seeks to enhance participants’ understanding of their leadership style. It will provide the tools that will help participants to develop their coaching skills successfully and thus have more impact on their teams, their organization, and their lives
