This coaching development is delivered through an interactive and highly participative methodology. The pace and intensity of delivery varies according to the experience and level of the participants.
The participants will gain a deeper insight into their own personal strengths and become aware of how they impact and influence others. They will be introduced to a coaching framework and appreciate how this will support the conversation with the coachee.
Coaching conversations support a more open culture encouraging development conversations amongst managers and employees. Coaching conversations can empower employees to take responsibility for their own progress and development.
