Coaching Conversations 

8th and 22nd of June 2021

It is a full year since we began to adapt our lives to COVID 19.  People have been affected, in so many ways, not least in the world of work.  Adapting to online working and supporting colleagues and staff through difficult times are just some of the challenges that have presented.

 

As we move out of lockdown, there will be new challenges and opportunities and, as always, great communication will be of paramount importance. A coaching approach, or non-directive style, helps you lead and manage people and build relationships that are engaging, empowering and fair.  Managers who have coaching conversations nurture the abilities and confidence in their teams to solve issues and develop and thrive.  The approach also helps to foster effective relationships with internal and external customers and promotes respect in the workplace.

 

The workshop is scheduled over two days with time between each session to apply your learning back in your organisation.

 

Who is it suitable for?

 

The course is especially suitable if you manage people, although also suits those who work with stakeholders and partners. It will give you time to reflect and review your management style and introduce you to skills and techniques and have even more productive and effective relationships at work.
