This course will help the learner to understand the critical role the coach plays in the coaching process. In particular the learner will appreciate how the role differs from that of a trainer, mentor or other developer of people. The learner will also recognise the benefits that result from adopting an appropriate role when acting as a coach.

For an organisation to operate successfully it is essential that its employees, particularly those in key positions, are able to ‘think outside the box’, make decisions and operate independently. Effective coaching encourages those being coached to adopt a mindset towards their own development that fosters these qualities and positive behaviours. A ‘coaching culture’, therefore, creates a workforce that is well able to support the demanding needs of a modern, constantly changing and non-bureaucratic organisation.

This course is for Line managers and others for whom coaching is part of their job role.
