This coaching course is for leaders. But it isn’t just about helping you as a leader to get better at what you do. The whole point of developing your coaching expertise is to encourage your teams and workforce to enhance their skills and capabilities. By using coaching skills in the workplace you can support your team members to take ownership and responsibility for their actions.
As a leader, it is easy to give suggestions and jump in when the answers are clear. However, allowing people to come up with their own solutions and to work out their own strategies is far more empowering. Your people need room to grow and make mistakes without feeling pressured.
And that is precisely what coaching can deliver.
