Coaching for Managers

About this Coaching for Managers course

In a work environment, coaching has been described as the quickest and most effective method for developing members of staff. Adopting coaching as a management style leads to self-motivation and an attitude that is orientated towards solutions and continual improvement rather than problems and avoidance. Coaching is about supporting people to learn instead of telling them what the answers are.
