Coaching and Mentoring Skills

We believe coaching and mentoring skills are the superpowers every manager should be aiming for. By investing just a small amount of time every day in coaching and mentoring conversations, you will help to raise performance and motivation levels right across your organisation.

In this highly experiential workshop we’ll show you how to anticipate and plan for these all-important conversations.  From touch line coaching to well-being check-ins we’ll provide frameworks, tools and techniques to raise both your coaching and mentoring skills.  We’ll highlight the challenges of leading remote coaching and mentoring conversations, giving you multiple opportunities to try out the techniques in a stretching yet supportive environment.
