Solution Focus Leader as Coach Workshop

Join us from Monday 7th March 2024 - Thursday 21 March 2024, from  09:00 to 12:30 (AEDT) each session for a four-part online workshop that explores the concept of "leader as coach".

Coaching is a key skill for managers, leaders and safety professionals to get the best out of every team member. When managers become a coach, not a boss, employee engagement and performance improve. Improving the coaching skills of one manager has an exponential effect in your workplace, as it increases employee performance, engagement, wellbeing and buy-in to your goals.

Leaders and safety professionals who attend this program will be able to have coach-like conversations the very next day that will build respect, inclusive teamwork and improve organisational culture. It is a highly practical program where the focus is on watching demonstrations of coaching and lots of practice and support to implement the new learning. 

This session will cover the three key elements that make coaching work: 

  • Solution Focus Coaching Model and Solution Focused Tools that support this model 
  • Key conversational skills 
  • Coaching Way of Being (Emotional Intelligence)
