Coaching skills for leaders

Leadership coaching has become the indispensable development tool for any forward-thinking 21st-century company. Unlike training, which may be solely focused on imparting task relevant skills, coaching is intent on facilitating immediate and long-term – usually holistic – individual development.

While the emphasis is on individual growth, the cumulative effect of a coaching approach on a business unit, department or even a company has in many cases proven to be transformational.

This is why effective leadership coaching offers organisations a win/win solution: done right, it has the power to challenge, enable and stimulate individuals to turn their potential into maximum performance.

At the same time, results-based coaching has been shown to enhance the productivity, the competitiveness and the image of a company.

A suitably empowered Leader-as-Coach would recognise many opportunities to upskill his/her team and also improve performance in the workplace.

This leadership coaching programme was one of the most useful I have attended in the last couple of years. The sessions gave me a clear ideas on how to change my approach in developing my employees.

Who is it for?

Core is for any leader that is in need of help facilitating immediate and long-term individual development, as well as support in applying these skills to the wider department and/or company.

Structure of our leadership coaching programme

This classroom experience works best with a small group of up to 8 participants to create opportunities to exchange and to learn from each other.

The programme will be split across 8 weeks, and for the first 6 weeks you will attend a 1.5hr virtual classroom, followed by a 2 hour session in week 7 and 8. Each participant will gain from one private one-to-one coaching session with the trainer during the programme. It is essential to be able to use two screens in parallel to enjoy the full classroom experience.

One week before you start your training you will receive a code of conduct to read, and a short instruction video on how to use Mural and Zoom. Once entered Mural, you will find a quick game that makes you familiar with this collaboration tools’ functionality. You will also be asked to attend a tech-check to ensure you are competent using the tools.

On the day of your first Core session, we advise that you join the training 20 minutes prior to official starting time. You will meet other participants and start a set-up sequence to optimise your later experience.

Your actual Core experience is 14 hours in total. Please allocate extra time in between the modules for homework and practice. And the experience does not have to stop after 8 weeks. We will give you the opportunity to create a “bond’’ with your learning partner to continue this journey after the workshop has officially finished. And, we would love to hear how you integrated your learning and made a difference
