Coaching & Mentoring Skills for Managers


The Coaching and Mentoring Skills for Managers workshop looks at Coaching and Mentoring as an individually focussed, personal development tool you can offer staff at all organisational levels.  It examines the difference between coaching and mentoring, the skills required to become a good coach or mentor, when and how to introduce coaching and mentoring and how to keep them on the development agenda.  It will also help you develop a strategy for structuring a session and to recognise when it is time to withdraw from a coaching or mentoring relationship.  The workshop also discusses how you should receive on-going support as a Coach or Mentor.

This workshop is limited to a maximum of 12 delegates to ensure that our experienced trainer has the time to assist you with any personal complex points that may arise during the day.

Who is it for?

This course is for Middle and Senior Managers with responsibility for the personal development of their team members.  Their only experience of coaching or mentoring may be where they have received it themselves in the past – but they have not had to provide it as a Coach or Mentor themselves yet.  You are looking to learn the skills and structure you’ll need to have in place.

What will you learn?

By the end of this course, you will be able to recognize when a coaching or mentoring intervention is relevant and will be able to set up a structure and process for providing it to those in your organisation who will benefit most from it.  You’ll be able to set a vision or goal for the coaching programme, together with your coachee or mentee, and will ensure that each session builds towards them reaching that goal.  You will have honed your listening, challenging and guiding skills and be able to provide a safe place for your coachee or mentee to self-assess, learn and grow in the context of the agreed goals.
