Core Skills in Coaching For Leaders & Managers

Delivered by the Guildhall School

Leading a team is a tough job. You need to manage performance, but take people with you. You must set high standards and be in control, but also encourage and develop staff. This course has been developed from our shared passion about the importance of coaching as a key behaviour for any manager, one that gets results and aligns people to what the organisation needs. Everything we teach is based on evidence, on our experience as managers ourselves and on working as coaches with many thousands of managers in both the public and private sector.

We believe that practice leads theory by a long way when it comes to learning to coach. We therefore always teach in small groups and with at least two tutors. We work on real material with real people – no watching videos! In the first four sessions we teach the core skill you need to use a coaching approach as a leader and manager. You then have a few weeks to practice and reflect before the two sessions. During this time you will have a one to one coaching session with one of the course tutors. We provide a comprehensive handbook and manual.

Upon successful completion, participants have the option to receive the Guildhall Certificate in Coaching & Mentoring, accredited by the EMCC (European Mentoring and Coaching Council) at Foundation Level*. Alternatively, participants will receive a certificate of attendance if they do not wish to complete the Learning Log.
