Leading through Coaching

Leading through Coaching

For those who are interested in learning the basic skills of how to coach, we regularly offer a 2-day introductory « Leading through Coaching » course. You will learn the fundamentals of coaching and how you can use it to provide support, build a common language for coaching and have a better working relationship with others.

  • As a powerful addition to managerial skills, this course is designed to show delegates how to achieve different outcomes to those that have been achieved before.
  • The language and flow of coaching is a key focus of the course, which is brought alive through practicing these new skills and coaching fellow delegates.
  • Like any competency, coaching is a road towards mastery – one cannot be taught to be an expert in two days, but one can certainly learn the key principles and flow of coaching.

“Leading Through Coaching” is a good introduction for those who are interested in doing our longer Internationally Accredited Coaching for
Development programme (ICF ACSTH) – participants find they complement one another well.

This workshop has been run for leading organisations across the globe (such as BMW, Barclays, Chevron & Toyota) supporting them in their strategic goals of continuous improvement (from the assembly line to top management), implementation of Lean Manufacturing / Lean Enterprise, leadership development or fast-tracking the emergent talent pool to senior leadership.
