What if you could spend less time worrying about the day-to-day issues and more time bringing out the best in your people? You could focus on increasing motivation and creating a sense of purpose that improves not only the quality of your workplace but the quality of the work you do, which in turn will lift the productivity of everyone around you.
Coaching for Managers is one of our short courses - a programme that will enable managers to use coaching skills as part of their management toolkit. You’ll come away with practical, proven coaching techniques to transform people’s lives and drive purpose in the workplace. You’ll gain valuable insights on the psychology and neuroscience behind how coaching works, and leave with the ability to help your team develop the skills, knowledge, and attitude necessary to deliver on their responsibilities and goals successfully.
An intensive, two-day experiential workshop is followed by a structured period of application back in the workplace, and a final, follow-up day will include reflective practice and coaching supervision to ensure the outcomes from the programme become embedded as a core skill-set. After finishing the programme, all successful candidates will receive an external quality-assurance statement, as you do with all IMNZ training and management courses.
Developed and delivered by world-class coaches, psychologists and educators, Prof. Patricia Bossons and Denis Sartain, authors of “Coaching Essentials” and “The Neuroscience of Leadership Coaching”, Coaching for Managers has a proven transformational capacity with 3,000 graduates across the world.
