Even for experienced leaders, evidence shows that time spent honing coaching skills pays huge dividends. In times of change, nothing embeds new procedures and behaviors like a focus on coaching individuals and teams. Organisational culture is driven forward by coaching, mentoring and when skillfully used can result in a performance-enhancing culture.
This one-day course will demonstrate the benefits of effective coaching leadership within organisations, providing delegates with the foundation to understand the value and positive outcomes of a coaching and mentoring structure.
Participants will develop and practice the core skills needed to coach and mentor productively, including learning how to construct a clear agreement between coach and coaches relating to the scope, objectives, confidentiality, and various practical aspects of the coaching engagement. Participants will gain renewed confidence and some new tools to be better coaches, as well as having the basic knowledge to introduce a coaching culture across their organisation. During the course participants will also practice active listening skills; gain insights through the use of open questions; employ proven coaching frameworks such as the GROW Coaching Model; experience examples of effective coaching through observational exercises, and use methods of reflective practice in order to hone mentoring abilities.
This course is suitable for current leaders, Board Members, Senior Executives, Senior managers, Line managers with challenging teams and anyone who aspires to take on a leadership role. This course is particularly valuable for leaders in organisations or teams undergoing change.
Participants will be able to engage in coaching conversations in order to begin to develop their own coaching style and reflective practice. Through a fuller understanding of the power of coaching, leaders will be able to make a difference to the people they coach and provide a sound basis for improved performance. Participants will gain the tools and insights needed to build a coaching culture in their organisation.
