Places available on the coaching leader one-day workshop

Posted by crm28 at Jun 02, 2017 02:50 PM |
University is to host one-day workshops on 7 June and 20 September.

Our university wants us all to lead with our natural, unique talents. For some of us coaching is our chosen way of leading but even if it’s not your preferred style, it’s useful to have the flexibility to use coaching techniques when this will get the best out of the colleagues you are leading.

The Organisational Development team is excited to add  ‘The Coaching Leader’ to its coaching development options. These one day workshops, taking place on Wednesday 7 June and Wednesday 20 September, will teach you how to feel more comfortable coaching colleagues in day-to-day leadership situations. Helping colleagues develop more confidence and better skills will lead to greater motivation and performance on the job.


This workshop will give you an introduction to the theory of coaching, provide practical support and refresh your skills in building rapport, listening, questioning and providing feedback. It is a ‘hands on’ workshop providing two opportunities to practise the skills in a safe and supportive environment.

Course objectives:

  • What coaching is (and isn’t)
  • How it can help you as a leader and how it can help colleagues
  • The key skills of coaching: building rapport, listening, questioning and feedback
  • The GROW model
  • Practice sessions
  • Personal reflection: how can you develop as a coaching leader?

Workshop Dates:

  • 7 June from 9.30am - 4.30pm
  • 20 September from 9.30am – 4.30pm
