Coaching Skills for Effective Leadership

  • Leadership
  • Course Code: 32506

Engaging the best in people to achieve results

Effective leaders know that the way to get exceptional results, consistently over time, is by connecting people with their talents, interests and potential. That’s where coaching comes in. Coaching expands capacity and confidence, while driving greater commitment to organizations and their goals. But by “coaching” we’re not talking about the twice a year “performance review”. True coaching is about how you work with and through people every day to inspire better performance. If you want to learn to do this more effectively, this course is for you.

    Colin's skillful delivery of the course materials, flavored with his experiences as a Coach, increased my self-awareness. I feel that he has equipped me with tools not only to be a better leader and coach, but also to be a better person. It is always a pleasure to learn from someone who has mastered his field, and I am so appreciative of what I have learned over the past two days.

    It was a very good course and a lot of material to help us support our colleagues. There is benefit in getting into more detail on some of the topics. But excellent topic and resource materials.

  • Yu M, Toyota Motor Manufacturing Canada Nov 23, 2017

    It provides a systematic way of coaching. Colin was an excellent facilitator. He was able to get everyone involved and engaged in the training. I like the fact that there are two follow up conferences to check up on the progress of what we have learned.
