Coaching skills ‘deep dives’

Five one-hour webinars

If you used the ‘Coaching moments’ webinar here as a quick dip, then follow up with the deep dives for the full immersion experience!

These very popular tried-and-tested sessions expand on how to get the most out of the coaching moment and how to develop and use each of the four key skills.

Learning objectives

These sessions are designed to help managers:

  • Give great ‘coaching moments’
  • Refine their use of the four key coaching skills
  • Get some skills practice in a supportive environment
  • Just do it!

Audience

  • Senior leaders, line managers, team leaders – anyone whose role includes responsibility for getting the best out of other people
  • And that includes HR BPs!

Format

These highly participative sessions work brilliantly as one-hour webinars (usually using Zoom) but we can also run them for you as ‘bite-sized’ workshops. Either way, we recommend a maximum of 12 people per session.

Delivery formats are flexible, but whatever format you choose we do recommend doing all five sessions – they’re best as a series, not ‘one-offs’.
