Leader as coach

Coaching Matters recognises that managing and coaching require very different ways of interacting with people. As a powerful addition to managerial skills, this course is designed to show delegates how to achieve different outcomes to those that have been achieved before.

The language and flow of coaching is a key focus of the course, which is brought alive through practicing these new skills and coaching fellow delegates.

Like any competency, coaching is a road towards mastery – one cannot be taught to be an expert in two days, but one can certainly learn the key principles and flow of coaching.


  • Clearly understand the difference between coaching and other modalities at your disposal as a manager and leader.
  • Recognise openings for coaching.
  • Foster mutual respect and trust with the people you coach.
  • See the road you need to walk towards mastery of this competency.
