Coaching Skills for Managers

If the answer to any of the questions below is YES, then you probably need your managers to learn how to coach. 

  • Have you identified the need for your people to be more innovative and help drive improvements and efficiency?
  • Do you want your managers to get closer to what is actually going on and to be able to communicate with their people about how they can improve what they are doing?
  • Do you need managers to develop the right mindset and behaviours to support strategic change?
  • Is there a need to raise levels of engagement through increased empowerment and personal development so that you can secure more sustainable success?
  • Are just looking for less top down decision making? 

Series of one or two day bespoke classroom based workshops with online support in between 

  • Learn the building block skills needed to coach your people on the spot in everyday situations
  • Take a step at a time and build up to coaching proficiency rather than try and accomplish everything in one go
  • Practice and more practice will enable you to use coaching more naturally and proficiently
  • Learn how to see coaching as a way of managing rather than something you have to do at certain times or in organised, pre-planned settings
  • On-line coaching supports the journey to coaching competence and provides valuable resources to support learners back at work

Most managers do not naturally coach. They have rarely been coached themselves. The pressure they feel to achieve results often leads to more traditional command and control styles which, in turn, demotivate and frustrate their people. The programmes suport them at each step and enable them to build confidence and competence to ensure success.

 Recent coaching training projects that we have developed include working globally with – 

  • Nestlé Waters, to support their LEAN (NCE) implementation and develop coaching skills for managers and team leaders within production and distribution.
  • Louis Vuitton, to develop the skills of store managers to engage in on the spot, shop floor coaching with sales staff to ensure excellent customer service and communication.
