Great coaching moments

A two-hour webinar

If you want to foster a coaching culture across the organisation, you need to ensure that managers don’t only use their coaching skills in formal settings, such as monthly 1:1s or scheduled appraisals and reviews. They need to be using these skills every day, in informal settings, ie, coaching ‘in the moment’. And they may need encouragement to do so. Hence this very popular webinar session.

The webinar is designed to encourage managers to ‘just do it!’ The session:

  • Challenges perceptions of coaching
  • Creates more opportunities for everyone to benefit from coaching
  • Refreshes line managers’ skills
  • Encourages use of a simple, best practice coaching process / framework (TGROW)
  • Facilitates practice
  • Ensures consistent language around coaching
  • Reassures people that ‘it’s OK to ask for help’
  • Inspires!

Learning objectives

By the end of this session you will:

  • Know what a great coaching moment looks like
  • Be more confident to coach ‘in the moment’
  • Understand how to apply the core skills and TGROW model in a coaching moment context
  • Have practised coaching in the moment – and have given feedback on someone coaching you
  • Be inspired to ‘just do it!’

Managers at all levels:

  • Managers of managers
  • Line managers
  • Team leaders and supervisors

Format

A highly participative two-hour webinar (we recommend using Zoom), featuring break-outs and practice sessions. Maximum group size: 12.
