90 Minute coaching skills Training session

Coaching skills training, only 30% of managers in the UK know how to coach effectively. Coaching needs to be the heartbeat of the company and the management skills to develop the teams. It is a directive (offering direction) process by a manager to train and orient/induct an employee to the realities of the workplace and to help the employee remove barriers to optimum work performance and work towards the vision of the company. It’s a little more asking questions and a little less telling people what to do

What a Coach Does - In practice:

  • A coach focuses on the agenda of the coachee. The coachee decides which goals or problems to work on, not the coach.
  • A coach uses powerful questions to generate new learning. The coach does not teach or advise but asks questions and listens. 

  • A coach encourages action. The coachee develops his or her own action steps, not the assignments of the coach.
  • A coach supports change. A coach follows-up to support personal learning, growth, and change.

Through ongoing conversations, coaches facilitate personal growth and goal attainment quicker, easier, and more comfortable than going it alone. Coachee’s are figuratively “carried” to their desired result by the coaching process. That’s what “coach” really means.

The issue with most managers is that they know (or think they know) the answers and it’s easier and quicker to just tell a team member what to do, but that doesn’t help anyone, it doesn’t develop the team member into a motivated self-directed member of staff who can think for themselves – a lack of coaching actually develops an overdependent team.

Coaching is about asking the right questions and having the coachee come up with the answers for themselves.
