Managers who are effectively involved in the growth and development of their employees make behaviour change happen. The manager with a coaching mind-set builds a work environment that guides employees to achieve higher levels of skills, increased engagement, and promotes personal development. As more organizations adopt a coaching culture, the need for expertise in coaching grows.

Coaching recognizes the inherent potential of people and as a collaborative process (manager-employee) widens the sphere of intellect and impacts the learning process. By using a “coach approach," managers shift from being directive and controlling to coaching for exceptional results.

This interactive workshop offers managers an opportunity to envision how they can develop a coaching culture by discovering the inherent benefits of a “solution-focused” model of coaching. Participants will gain the understanding of how coaching promotes trust and collaboration, leads to better working relationships, and can enhance motivation, engagement, and commitment in the workplace.
