You don’t need to be a coach to have coaching conversations at work. But you do need to learn coaching skills.
As professional leadership coaches, coaching supervisors and trainers with decades of experience between us, 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. Our aim is to not train managers to be coaches, but to teach coaching skills for managers to have more effective coaching conversations at work.
Curious Conversations open programmes:
We hope to be be bringing the fully 'in person' sessions back in 2021! In the meantime, why not talk to us about running a virtual Curious Conversations in-house with your team. We can work with your IT protocols and flex the course around your specific coaching for manager's needs.
