WHY LEARN TO COACH AS A LEADER AND MANAGER?
Leading a team is a tough job. You need to manage performance, but take people with you. You must set high standards and be in control, but also encourage and develop staff. This course has been developed from our shared passion about the importance of coaching as a key behaviour for any manager, one that gets results and aligns people to what the organisation needs. Everything we teach is based on evidence, on our experience as managers ourselves and on working as coaches with many thousands of managers in both the public and private sector.
You will learn how to
- be a brilliant listener
- give feedback that is heard and acted upon
- ask powerful questions that create new thinking
- develop employees key skills and attitudes
- create a culture of positive engagement
- reduce your stress
ABOUT THE COURSE
We believe that practice leads theory by a long way when it comes to learning to coach. We therefore always teach in small groups and with at least two tutors. We work on real material with real people – no watching videos! On the first two days we teach the core skills you need to use a coaching approach as a leader and manager. You then have a few weeks to practice and reflect before the final day. During this time you will have a one to one session with one of the course tutors.
We provide a comprehensive handbook and manual.

The coaching approach should be an essential component of any management course. It is straightforward, user friendly and engaging. It has made me (and will continue to make me) a more effective leader and manager by enhancing my awareness of what I need to do to get the best out of the people around me. This type of self awareness is so overlooked and yet so critical to the success of any relationship, personal or professional. This is a great course! Enjoy every minute. Alan Watt, Chief Executive, Academy of St Martins in the Fields
This coaching course is the best and most effective training I have undertaken in recent years. It has allowed me to reflect both personally and professionally and due to this I feel liberated. Jane and Jenny are hugely inspirational and they support you to enhance your strengths but also to develop and grow your mind. Bryony Surtees, Executive Head Teacher, Chesterton & Isle of Ely Primary School
The course is delivered in small numbers and intensive but in a very positive way. Both Jenny and Jane are wonderful coaches who are extremely adept and professional. Jason Wing, Executive Principal, Neal Wade Academy
