The Art of Coaching – Coaching Skills for Leaders

Coaching is increasingly seen as a key skill for anyone in a leadership position - helping those around you to find the strengths and skills they need to succeed.

Coaching isn't just about our relationships with others, facilitating the best performance in individuals and teams we lead, but also about self-reflection and improvement.

The capacity to bring out the best performance in ourselves and others involves skills that can be learnt. This experiential workshop will allow you to brush up on your coaching skills, understand your own coaching style and increase your own motivation to coach and be coached. In this hands-on workshop we will experience how to coach and feel what it is like to be coached using the GROW Model.

We will examine:

  • The Case for Coaching
  • Coaching Frameworks
  • Skills of Coaching
  • The GROW Model

GROW Model

The GROW Model is a simple process of facilitated goal setting and problem solving. It was developed in the United Kingdom in the 1980s and is used extensively in many different coaching settings. GROW is an acronym standing for (G)oals, (R)eality, (O)ptions and (W)ill, highlighting the four key steps in the implementation of this approach.

Each participant will leave with a heightened sense of how they can bring their own style to coaching for success in their organisation.
