Programme: Training for Managers
Course: Manager as Coach

Who is this course for?
This course would be of benefit to those managers who want to be able to coach their staff through performance and development related issues to get the most out of their management of people.  

This course is based around a mixture of coaching theory and coaching practice, with initial input covering attitudes and the philosophy behind coaching and explaining a popular coaching model.  Delegates will have time to practise using the model and by the end of the day will be able to apply it to their own management of staff.  Delegates will leave this day as coaching managers with a full understanding of why coaching is important, how it differs from other techniques and when (and when not) to use it. They will be fully conversant with the UK’s standard coaching model and will have practised their new-found skills in a safe and supportive setting. Finally, they will be aware of how they can continue their coaching skills developed in their day-jobs.
By the end of this course you will

  • Be equipped with the attitudes and skills of being a coaching manager
  • Understand how and when to use the coaching approach
  • Explore and use the GROW model
  • Have had extensive coaching practice using role-play
  • Be able to apply the model to ongoing management conversations


Before the course

The day contains two coaching practicals where you will be acting as both coach and coachee.  Therefore please bring with you two issues or problems that you are currently facing at work and would be prepared to discuss in a coaching setting.  These do not have to be particularly onerous, but should be real, as opposed to a made up scenario.
