The Manager as Coach
There are two ways that a coaching style of management can help in your organisation: using it to focus on performance, and the more mature coaching characteristics, which focus on empowerment.
This one day workshop will build confidence and capability, allowing managers to explore the elements of the coaching approach and build it into their management style.
In the first instance coaching has a development orientation, and helps to improve performance, enable effective feedback and create successful planning and goal-setting activities.
Mature coaching characteristics, which are also associated with a participative management style, include using ideas from team members, powerful questioning, team-based problem solving and shared decision-making.
What the day involves:
- Discovery: what is coaching and when is it most effective?
- Developing the skills: attentive listening and powerful questions
- Exploring: using the GROW model to create a structured approach
- Context: practicing coaching conversations in classic work based scenarios
- Deeper dive: discussing the challenges of putting into action, ethical dilemmas and next steps
- Actions: commit to coaching actions with their teams
Everyone within an organisation can coach and learn how to reap the benefit of coaching conversations every single day.
The workshops demonstrate how to have coaching conversations, illustrate why they are so powerful and then show how use these new skills from the minute your people get back to work.

Team members learn how to have open dialogue and gain greater clarity, coherence and consistency around priorities. It also shows teams how to manage conflict constructively – so that conflict becomes a driver of performance, rather than a barrier.
Other benefits of team coaching include increasing the level of creativity and innovation and improving the effectiveness of communication, both between team members and with external stakeholders. Teams develop a stronger sense of shared purpose and become more resilient to setbacks.
