4 coaching conversations in 3 days
You don’t need to be a coach to have coaching conversations at work. But you do need to learn coaching skills.
Curious Conversations promises a head, heart and hand experience for managers to learn the core coaching skills and other techniques to have Curious, Challenging, Championing and Courageous Conversations in the context of everyday work. Conversations that most managers have on a weekly basis.
These 3 days of training and expert feedback on the 4 typical work-based conversations will enable managers to improve their communication and relationship skills, improve the job satisfaction of staff and to reduce conflict at work. The programme is delivered by two Co-Active Coaches.
84% of workers say that coaching should be part of every business’s management and development programme. (City and Guilds research Nov 2018)
As professional leadership coaches, coaching supervisors and trainers with decades of experience between us, we often observe managers asking “have you thought about doing x” or “why don’t you do this” as an example of good coaching skills. They often ask “why?” and are surprised when someone acts defensively, or use great questions out of context, by not really listening to what the other person has actually said. We know that most managers are expected to take on the role of a coach, with little or no training and are invariably ill-prepared for the task. What they believe coaching is, or what they’ve experienced in the past, in reality is a nicely framed instruction or a conversation based on someone else’s agenda. Not coaching at all.
