IT IS COMMON FOR COACHING TO BE INTRODUCED INTO AN ORGANISATION WITHOUT EDUCATING THOSE THAT WILL BE ASKED TO SPONSOR OR OVERSEE THE COACHING OR MENTORING.

A sponsor of coaching or mentoring is a key part of ensuring that focus and ROI of the coaching undertaken in your organisation are achieved so this 2 to 4-hour training course is aimed at providing a clear outline of what is expected of them as a sponsor.


Outline Approach

  • the concept of workplace coaching to managers who have little or no experience or understanding of what workplace coaching is and what you are trying to achieve with it
  • the difference between leading, managing and coaching and how coaching works in practice
  • distinguishing between coaching, mentoring and counselling
  • understanding their role and responsibilities as a sponsor
  • the importance of three-way contracting, reviewing and reporting coachee progress
  • how to ensure the coachee effectively utilises the opportunity of the coaching

By the end of the course, participants will be equipped with a basic understanding of workplace coaching and mentoring, understand the role of the sponsoring manager, and how to ensure that internal coaching and mentoring is being delivered appropriately to the needs of the manager and the organisation, as well as the individual.
