Manager as Coach

Leadership and management
The ability to coach has become a core competence for today's managers, and a key performance criterion for many successful organisations.

The ability to coach is a core competence for today’s managers.

It requires managers to understand their own behavioural patterns, their leadership style, and the effect they have on those around them, to get the best out of their team.

While coaching can help you manage and motivate, retain key staff and deliver results through the success of your people, the skills required - listening and receiving feedback from individuals, and identifying clear and relevant directions for their personal development - may not come naturally.

This course will provide the opportunity to reflect on your leadership style and give you skills to effectively coach your team for improved productivity and performance. It includes a DISCflex behavioural assessment which will be completed before the course.
