Many organisations now include a blend of virtual, hybrid and distributed teams. This means that our approach to leading and developing must adapt so our teams remain relational and connected. Managing through coaching is now an essential skill for every manager.

Manager as Coach is a management style that offers more flexibility and range in building relationships, developing staff and maximising efficiency and productivity. It is about collaborating, working to build the strengths of your team, delegating more, talking less, listening more, and giving effective feedback. It is about understanding others at a deeper level which can lead to a more empowering and higher-performing culture.

This course is highly interactive and experiential. It will enable you to understand the fundamental principles, purpose, limitations and benefits of coaching as a management tool. Through our design, you will practise coaching skills for managers that will transform how you communicate, interact and grow your team. This approach develops staff, enhances team cohesion and supports productivity.

Who is this course for?

This course is aimed at:

  • Managers who want to develop coaching skills as part of their management practice
  • Those who want to empower others to get the best possible results organisationally and individually
  • Anyone who wants to develop stronger and better relationships with team members and stakeholders

  • You will have a confident understanding of the coaching models and processes and how to use these on a day-to-day basis
  • You will know how to use coaching skills to develop and build a high-performing team

Establishing relational connections is crucial for line managers to empower and encourage teams to be resilient and high-performing. As a result of this course, your managers will be able to use coaching skills to build the strength of their team allowing them to be better placed to adapt to challenges and disruption
