Coaching for High Performance
Who should attend, and why?
This programme of one day followed by 2 half-days is for anyone who wishes to understand what is meant by coaching, and how to improve their coaching style and skill set. Coaching is a significant approach to working well with others, usually in a 1-1 setting. It is particularly relevant in helping others work through issues that are significant to them, and also to help individuals develop and build capacity.
