Code: SGC/19/270 Coaching Skills (EVENT FULL)

The Council promotes the use of a "Coaching style" of management, which empowers staff to take responsibility for their own performance and work. The ability of managers to coach the performance and development of their staff is therefore considered a key skill. The time invested in developing coaching skills can deliver some very positive outcomes, such as, delivering increased motivation, performance and removing barriers and blockers to progression. Coaching skills can change the way people think about your leadership and you can inspire confidence and self-belief in your team. You have an opportunity to motivate others in a positive and inspirational way. If you arenÐt a manager you can assist and support peers through this collaborative approach to tackling issues. Ultimately it empowers people to perform more effectively and through the tools and techniques you learn on this course you will also find that you become more effective too. This interactive day will give you a greater understanding of how you can use this simple coaching tool to improve the performance of others. YouÐll have a better understanding of what makes people tick and be able to use the techniques to build better relationships with others. The standard charge for this course is £80 per day although for council employees this course is free to attend.
