Coaching for Great Work

Simple, practical coaching skills for the time-stretched manager and leader.

Are you a manager or leader who wants to coach more—but is feeling overwhelmed. Too many strategic priorities, too much email, too many meetings, rising expectations and the complications of getting a team to be more than the sum of its parts.

Under stress like this, old management habits die hard.

Bottom line? “Do more coaching” is easy in theory and difficult in practice for the time-stretched manager. A recent study found that, even with managers trained in coaching skills, less than 25% of people receiving coaching said it was having a significant impact on either performance or satisfaction.

Those are shocking statistics. And unlike every other coach program for managers we’ve seen, Coaching for Great Work was built from scratch to tackle head-on the barriers that stop managers coaching more.

This program 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.

At the end of the program, 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.

As well as the coaching program materials (specifically designed to avoid the fate of “filed & forgotten”), managers get a comprehensive 108-day post-workshop support to ensure that you're practicing your new habits and embedding the new behaviours.
