Our coaching training helps managers and team leaders to master this important managerial skill, in order to develop the confidence and capability of their teams. Coaching is about helping another person achieve improved performance through their own efforts.
As a manager coaching can be a very useful technique to help people achieve things they were’t sure they could; it helps to develop other people’s confidence; it helps when as a manager you get asked by your team members how to do things repeatedly, being asked the same question over and over.
Coaching training has to be set in the context of the participants’ role. Different roles can use coaching as a management technique in different ways.
One of the more surprising ways coaching can be used as a way to stop team members always coming to the manager with questions on how to do things, rather than thinking for themselves or working things out.
Coaching can also be used as a developmental tool to help someone develop skills they did not think they had, or could attain. You can use coaching as a good learning tool as people tend to learn faster by working things out for themselves, even though the process feels slower for the manager.
Coaching training with ITD
The ITD approach to coaching is to introduce various models and the latest thinking and apply these to your business and to the needs of the participants. We also set coaching within the context of other management styles.
Coaching is the ability to achieve better performance from the team through encouragement, questioning, helping the team to improve rather than telling them how to.
Some compare coaching to being a gardener encouraging growth rather than trying to force it. A good coach has the vision to be able to see what needs to be done, to help the team to see that vision and allow them to decide which path to follow.
