The COVID pandemic has led to more virtual and distributed teams and organisation. This means that our approach to leading and developing others has to adapt to remain relational and connected. Managing through coaching is now an essential skill for every manager.
Manager as Coach is a management style that offers more flexibility and range in building relationships, developing staff, maximizing efficiency and productivity. It is about collaborating, working to build the strengths of your team, delegating more, talking less, listening more, and giving effective feedback. It is about engaging with others through questions and inquiry to elicit solutions and understand others at a deeper level which can lead to a more empowering and high performing culture.
Our Manager as Coach Programme is highly interactive and experiential. It will enable you to understand the fundamental principles, purpose, limitations, and benefits of coaching as a management tool. Through our design, you will practice coaching skills for managers that will transform how you communicate, interact and grow your team. This approach develops staff, enhances team cohesion and supports productivity.
