Leader as Coach

Build positive habits and increase your effectiveness in leading yourself and your team.

How do you empower others to reach their full potential? Traditional, directive approaches inhibit development, whereas a coaching approach can result in: greater team knowledge and expertise, more motivated staff, more confident and resourceful individuals, and increased staff retention.

Designed to address everyday workplace situations, the aim of this blended program is to develop your coaching strategies, skills and confidence over a period of time. As you learn both foundational and advanced coaching concepts and frameworks, you will intentionally focus on practicing tools within your work environment. Practically applying your new knowledge will build positive habits and increase your effectiveness in leading yourself and your team.
