coaching skills for managers

Our one day coaching skills for managers training skills course will help your managers and team leaders to develop each team member resulting in a high performing team

According to our research just 30% of managers in the UK understand what coaching actually is, you see over the years the word coaching has been lost in translation and it's confusing for people. 

The origin of the word coach comes from the Hungarian words kocsi szekér which is a vehicle created to move food and people from one place to another. Coach in English was originally a slang word students called their professors before the exams – because they would move them from where they are now to where they want to be.

So, coaching is a specific type of conversation between the manger (for example) and the employee or team being coached. Instead of directing or advising, the coach asks powerful questions (we supply these in the course) that help the coachee re-evaluate their challenge and identify the new behaviours and actions, they need to develop, that will help them better achieve the desired outcomes. The coachee then becomes accountable to the coach (and themselves) for the changes they commit to make.

And that’s the important aspect of all our training – its about being accountable for their part of achieving the vision. So if you have some team members who are struggling with their tasks and are potentially demotivated, you managers will really benefit from our coaching skills for managers training course.
