Our Fundamental Skills of Coaching programme is particularly relevant if your organisation is just starting to promote coaching within the workplace.
It introduces participants to the fundamentals of workplace performance coaching by:
> Providing a fundamental understanding of coaching skills and how to use these when coaching and being coached
> Introducing basic coaching skills that can be incorporated into a leadership style and ways of working
The style and positioning of the programme can be flexed to meet the needs of your audience – whether you’re using the programme to brief your senior leadership team about the value of coaching or to build awareness of coaching in your general leadership population.
We work with you to bespoke the content and approach to ensure we maximise impact.
