Coaching Skills for Line Managers
The best managers and leaders deploy a full range of leadership styles to enable their people and teams to perform at their best. Some leadership styles come more easily than others, especially against the backdrop of task focused, pace setting environments that many businesses operate within. As organisations become leaner and flatter, the need for individuals to think and act without direct supervision is paramount. Adopting a coaching leadership style can support the performance and development of staff. Coaching skills for line managers is about maximising the opportunity in a 100 small interactions rather than conducting 2 hour sit down coaching sessions.
Coaching Skills for Internal Coaches
Some organisations make the decision to develop the coaching skills of nominated individuals to a higher level in order to provide a more comprehensive in house coaching capability. This development provides a more depth and breadth of coaching techniques and focuses on the more formal coaching approach and interventions.
