Training Approach

Our approach is a combination of theory and experiential learning, providing participants with the tools and frameworks required to understand when coaching is appropriate; to hold effective coaching conversations and to use a coaching approach for talent development and management.

As well as providing an overview of the latest coaching theory and practice models, participants will identify a development agenda and will experience being coached in relation to personal career goals. Feedback will be offered on progress throughout the Programme alongside learning how to develop teams. 

Practice and reflection are key elements in the adult learning process. Our approach is to engage our delegates actively in coach practice - both on the Programme and over the three month period of the training.   

What you will learn on this programme

  • Definition and the role of coaching in business and organisational context
  • Differences between coaching and mentoring
  • Principles of coaching, tools and methods
  • Coaching for employee engagement, performance and motivation
  • The psychology of change and how this applies to you and your employees in business
  • Manager as coach and flexing leadership styles

“Participating in the Coaching skills for managers programme has been very beneficial to me in several ways: not only did it enable me to develop a network of like-minded legal professionals but it also helped me to refresh my coaching skills (used in a previous professional corporate career) and strengthen the deep sense of coaching culture within my firm. The techniques reviewed during the coaching programme and the coaching practice exercises have been essential to making this programme a success. I would recommend it to anyone who is managing teams and/or has a keen interest in acquiring and/or developing their coaching skills.”

Sandrine Greene, Director of Operations, Tracey Solicitors, Dublin
