Introduction to Coaching for Managers

View booking options


Extensive research has demonstrated that successful organisations practise and encourage a growth mindset. This is the belief that our basic qualities can be cultivated through effort and help from others. This means that everyone can change and grow through learning and experience.

A coaching approach to management provides a practical way for managers to encourage a growth mindset in their staff and in the organisation as a whole. This workshop provides a simple and effective coaching approach to conversations, in both the real and virtual world.

Thank you Sheila, great workshop with loads of tips and advice.

Really good session, thought-provoking and useful to my role.
