This workshop demystifies coaching and makes accessible the thinking and skills to apply as a layer over your existing leadership practice. You will be introduced to the art, heart and science of the leader as coach, and shown the approach to grow an organisational coaching culture.

After learning to think like a coach, we then look at your existing work, work practices and interaction and how you can weave that thinking into ‘being’. You are probably already doing much as a leader that could be considered coaching; a clearer understanding of the mindset allows you to be intentional about your existing practice and to develop your existing strengths.

As a leader you have multiple roles so this workshop shows you how to undertake all your tasks with a coaching perspective rather than coaching being a separate function or role. You will be introduced to tools and frameworks to support an organisational approach to coaching, and to support others to adopt the mindset and skillset you have been shown. The genesis of a coaching culture is a leader who coaches and sees the benefit being wider than just their team, this workshop provides you with the tools to share.

Pre-work will include an online behavioural DISC assessment that will be used during the workshop. This will assist you to develop insights into your interpersonal strengths and help develop your unique coaching approach.
