Coaching Training For Managers

Exceptional leadership is not just a skill; it’s a fundamental pillar of organisational success. Every decision, action, and interaction is an opportunity to lead. The Coaching Training for Managers programme is designed to empower managers with the essential mindset and behaviours needed to excel in coaching roles, fostering a values-driven culture and impactful connections that set you apart.

Great coaches evolve beyond the skills that initially brought them success. Coaching training requires letting go of old habits to embrace new behaviours and ways of thinking. Our programme emphasises a coaching mindset focused on values, culture, and the intangible connections between people, rather than merely ‘doing’ tasks.

Progressive Learning Journey

This coaching training programme offers a progressive learning journey where each session builds on the last. We start with ‘Leading and Understanding Self’, then apply these insights to ‘Leading & Understanding Others’, with ample time for reflection on previous learning and action points. The in-company programme can be tailored to fit your organisational needs, culture, and outcomes.

Many clients choose to incorporate behavioural or psychometric profiling, such as Insights Discovery and EQi2.0. We support a wide variety of diagnostic tools, including 360-degree assessments. Additionally, some clients enhance the Coaching Training programme with reflective elements like learning journals or projects.
