To have a significant impact on your organisation’s performance, your managers need a coach-like leadership style and the ability to have sustained coaching conversations with their teams. However, today’s time-strapped managers and leaders often find themselves defaulting to an old-school management approach: tell rather than ask. But solving problems instead of helping people find their own solutions perpetuates bottlenecks and fire-fighting. And managers are continually finding themselves stuck with just too much stuff on their plate.

Theory, models and exhortations to “do more coaching” aren’t going to make a difference. We need to help managers and leaders develop the coaching skills, insights and support that will change their behaviour so that coaching becomes a habit — and a regular, useful part of their management repertoire.

Full day live session (also available virtually), deeper dive into coaching skills for the busy manager. We help managers, executives and leaders understand how and why they’re so quickly and easily tempted to jump in and be the ‘advice giver’ and the ‘problem solver’ — and the price that they (and the employees they’re managing) pay for this. With this new understanding, it becomes easier for them to disarm the “advice hair-trigger” so that managers can use their coaching skills when the occasion calls for them.

We equip your managers with a range of practical next-day-ready coaching tools to increase focus, engagement and impact. This full-day programme assumes that your leaders have made coach-like leadership a habitual part of the way they manage and that they’re now looking to dive a bit deeper.

At the end of the programme, managers, executives and leaders will be able to use coaching skills to:

  • Focus themselves and their team on the stuff that really matters

  • Get (and keep) people excited, motivated and engaged

  • Have the difficult conversations

  • Create bigger thinking and fresh ideas

  • Manage the overwhelm

  • Develop a more self-sufficient team

Post-Programme Process
As well as the coaching programme materials (specifically designed to avoid the fate of “filed and forgotten”), managers get comprehensive post-workshop support to ensure that they are practising new habits and embedding the new behaviours:

  • Access to a comprehensive Booster Shot™ learning portal

  • An accountability support system among participants that keeps people encouraged and engaged

  • A 108-day follow-up course that helps key lessons from the coaching programme stick

Who Should Attend?
This programme will expand possibilities and create accountability, all to help drive engagement and increase employee impact. It is ideal for managers, executives and leaders who want to be able to provide focused, results-based coaching in 10 minutes or less.


  • Managers learn how to use coaching as a catalyst for growth – Everyday coaching becomes a powerful mechanism for getting things done, driving employee engagement and higher organizational performance.

  • It develops coaching mastery – Coaching for Great Work builds on knowledge from The Coaching Habit programme, and goes deeper, ingraining coaching as a way of being rather than acting.

  • It boosts manager and team impact – Coaching for Great Work drives productivity, efficiency and impact by building the discipline to find and focus on the core challenge. Rather than being distracted by the first challenge that shows up, participants learn to uncover the real challenge.


  • A full day live session (2 x 120min sessions) followed by 120 days of micro-learning support

  • Available virtually

  • Available for between 12 and 20 participants

  • Best fit for mid- and senior-management
