Coaching, mentoring and developing staff is an essential skill for the modern manager. The goal is to create autonomous individuals and teams that are high performing and that contribute without direct supervision. As business becomes more complex and competitive, getting the best out of well trained and highly motivated people is vital.
Our Coaching & Mentoring Skills course is designed to give managers and staff at all levels the opportunity to practice the necessary skills to coach, mentor and train staff to enable better performance. The course looks at appropriate learning interventions for particular situations. These can range from learner centred direction and goal-setting, through to prescriptive training events with pre-planned content and objectives.

We also look at and discuss creating SMART (specific, measurable, agreed, realistic and time-bound) goals and the use of tools such as personal development plans, competency frameworks and techniques such as the GROW (goal, reality, options and way forward) model to plan the development of the member of staff in question.

Coaches and mentors also require personal skills and attributes to be effective. These include active listening skills, questioning techniques and the ability to build an effective relationship with the subject. The role of the coach or mentor is not only to impart knowledge and experience, but also to build confidence and provide effective feedback. With this in mind, the workshop explains the concept of learning styles and how adults can prefer different ways of receiving and processing information.

Designed for:

Managers with subordinates that would benefit from guidance through coaching rather than from direct supervision, or for other staff developing their skills as a designated coach or mentor.
