Coaching Skills for Managers

Introducing a coaching culture can bring many business advantages including:

Coaching is not only an effective way for organisations to develop their people but also, at an organisational level, coaching contributes to a culture that is defined by active listening, constructive questioning, individual empowerment, the building of rapport and an emphasis on holding real two-way conversations.

HDN’s Coaching Skills for Managers programme can help you effectively embed a coaching culture into your organisation by equipping those with line management responsibility with practical tools to support their teams in a positive, constructive way.

Over the course of a full day and half-day follow-up session, participants will cover a range of key skills such as questioning, giving feedback, listening, reframing, and emotional intelligence, along with exploring different coaching models. The programme includes a StrengthScope 360 assessment for each participant, and a one-to-one session to explore the results of this.

If this is the first time you are introducing coaching to your managers, we can also run a short ‘launch’ session ahead of the course.
