manager as coach

The must have management skillset: coaching

Today’s complex and hybrid world of work requires a more inclusive leadership style. Experts believe that coaching skills are now critical for leaders and managers to develop in themselves.

Upskilling leaders and managers to coach and mentor their people helps achieve high performance and grows a leader’s confidence to provide regular, developmental, feedback. Our ICF accredited Leader/Manager as Coach programme trains people in the skills, tools and context for coaching others in the workplace, as part of regular and easy conversations. 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.

People join organisations but leave managers - because relationships matter.

Coaching can support
