In coaching and teaching coaching skills for nearly ten years, I continue to be amazed at its power in unlocking potential and generating creative thinking.

Coaching is a crucial skill for managers who want to focus on a core aspect of their jobs: developing talent. So coaching workshops in addition to one-to-one coaching for managers can add a highly valuable skill to an organisation's toolkit for people development. Managers who can coach well can shift the focus from the negative connotations of "performance management" to the much more positive aspects of talent development, collaborative problem solving and ongoing creative conversations.

Coaching encompasses and harnesses:
Focused attention - raising awareness of key issues that are blocking growth and development or strengths that aren't being leveraged
Intentional action - committing to purposeful and strategic follow through that delivers positive change.
"When done well, coaching boosts not just employees' capabilities but also their self-confidence, helping them function both more autonomously and at a higher level," wrote Daniel Goleman in The New Leaders (2002). "... the coaching style may not scream 'bottom-line results', but in a surprising indirect way, it delivers them."
I or one of my experienced coaching colleagues can help you and your team with:
One to one coaching
Manager as Coach skill development workshops

Whether coaching is done by an external coach or a manager-coach, it offers some great advantages:
It can be customised and tailored to individual developmental needs. 
It is flexible in terms of delivery and timing.
It is a supportive and focused activity that helps the individual optimise their time, attention and effort.
