What is coaching?

We’ll explore coaching, its origins, and how it’s similar to, but different from, mentoring.

Coaching practise

Try out your new coaching skills and experience the power of being coached yourself.

This course is perfect for marketers developing their skills in managing others and who want to explore the power of coaching to improve their team’s performance.
In today’s fast-moving and time-poor world, managers often believe it’s quicker to tell their people what to do, or even do it themselves, rather than effectively coach them. As a result they end up with too much on their own plate and a team struggling to keep up.

This one-day session explores the skills of coaching, and gives you practical exercises to bring out the best in your people and their performance.
