About The Event
Coaching Conversations; skills for developing your people through coaching.
The culture of a company is crucial to its success and, as we know, the culture is determined by the people within the organisation. Whether face to face or online, communication using a coaching approach is engaging, empowering and fair. Managers who have coaching conversations nurture the abilities and confidence of their teams to solve issues and think for themselves. It helps build effective relationships and promotes respect in the workplace.
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.

This course opened up my ability to be more self-aware and a reality check on my Leadership style. The course improved not only my listening skills but my understanding of thoughtful responses and asking the right questions, most of all resisting the temptation to impose my solutions as I tended to do.- Alex Wilson, Coaching Conversations participant
This was an excellent opportunity to meet new people, brush up my coaching skills and remind myself of the value and power of asking good questions. The self-empowerment and awareness that comes from coaching conversations
helps us unpack all the dialogue in our head into logical steps to go forward. - Gayle Cattanach, Coaching Conversations participant
