Why 'manager as coach'?manager as coach

In today’s volatile environment, good relationships hold the workforce together.

People join organisations but leave managers - because relationships matter.

Coaching can support

  • Better communication between managers and team members
  • Positive feedback and performance management processes
  • Training and study - combining learning and skills in practical ways

When organisations develop more coach-like, engaging managers, they address some of today’s fundamental challenges:

Unlock employee engagement

Improve productivity and performance

Reduce staff turnover and absenteeism

Achieve more effective team work

Coaching and mentoring is often rated as one of the most useful interventions by the people being developed. Coaching can be life-changing as people feel properly listened to, understood and valued for their contribution.
