… learn how you can shift your conversations to impact your relationships and the bottom-line results of your team …
Who is the course aimed at?
The ability to inspire others, to unlock potential and to encourage innovation is central to being an effective leader, as well as for all of us who interact with others on a regular basis. Learning the basic skills of how to coach others is a powerful addition to any leader’s skill set – in this course, you can expect to learn the fundamentals of coaching and how to lead in a coaching way when the occasion demands it.
Why a journey and not simply a workshop to learn basic coaching skills?
Our research over the years has revealed that no single workshop event, no matter how well done, will result in a lasting change in behaviour. Within the frame of our group learning context, we have designed an introductory coach skills training process consisting of the two-day “Leader as Coach” workshop, followed up by three, one-day “Coaching Circles” every 6 weeks after the workshop.
This journey starts with a two-day experiential and interactive workshop, where you will learn to:
Improve collaboration and engagement :
working with teams and peers
motivating and engaging others in all areas of your life
Learn the power of questions to:
open new possibilities
generate tangible solutions
create a genuine sense of personal ownership
Listen with depth and clarity in order to:
identify and remove wasteful and “non-listening” behaviours
develop interaction skills that build trust and collaboration
enable others to cut to the core of their issue
Leaders & managers of organisations
Entrepreneurs & independents
Consultants, project managers
All those who are interested in leadership, of themselves and others

This effectively changes the Leader as Coach workshop from an event into a 4-month leadership journey that does result in lasting behavioural change in those who are open to such changes.
