Leadership

An introduction to coaching

By 2nd July 2019 No Comments

Coaching focuses on helping people to draw on their own resources in order to meet the challenges of their role. This short course explains the benefits of a coaching approach and shows how to have effective coaching conversations.

Coaching is a development approach that is focused around helping people to recognise and draw on their own resources in order to face the challenges and demands of their job. As such, it represents an investment in building the capacity of your people and developing the long-term skills and abilities of your workforce and can be particularly effective for people who are new to a leadership or management role. In this short course, psychologist Sarah Lewis shows how coaching conversations can support your training and development goals and demonstrates key techniques and strategies through a series of dramatised conversations.

This training film will give a better understanding of:

  • the purpose of coaching
  • the benefits of taking a coaching approach to development
  • situations in which coaching can be effective
  • key techniques and strategies to use in coaching conversations.
Sarah Lewis

Coaching is a form of development, personal development, that is very focused on helping the person access their own resources, their existing skills, knowledge and ability that they can bring to the particular challenge in hand.
