Manager as Coach
Evidence-based models of behavioral change
We have applied the science of behavioral change to the challenges facing today’s managers who are also coaches. Changing behaviour is difficult and learning to coach is no exception. For most managers learning to coach, it will take three to six months for their new behaviours to feel natural and authentic. This transition is achieved more rapidly and successfully when the coach has personalized support.
The coach learning journey during this development program involves a mix of workshop style training, action learning projects and individual coaching sessions. The Manager as Coach program facilitates performance enhancement through greater self-awareness, more effective interactions and an improved capability to grow people through coaching. This program is built on evidence-based models of behavioral change and develops a solution-focused approach to the coaching opportunity.

People who coach are rewarded with more time for strategic activities due to greater pro-activity and resourcefulness from your teams.
