Coaching Skills Training

Coaching skills training for managers and 1-2-1 Coaching for Personal & Business Growth

The need for coaching skills and training is clear but how do you do it?

The Chartered Institute for Personnel and Development viewpoint: Although there's a lack of agreement among coaching professionals about precise definitions, there are some generally agreed characteristics of coaching in organisations:
•  It's essentially a non-directive form of development.
•  It focuses on improving performance and developing an individual.
•  Personal factors may be included but the emphasis is on performance at work.
•  Coaching activities have both organisational and individual goals.
•  It provides people with the opportunity to better assess their strengths as well as their development areas.

It's a skilled activity, which should be delivered by people who are trained to do so. This can be line managers and others trained in coaching skills. OACD coaches believe that businesses can support their staff development.
