Leadership Skills: Reading


Showcasing drama-based training on effective coaching techniques

Good management lies at the heart of every successful business. We have clients who recognise this and aren’t prepared to leave it to chance. They put in place the means to develop managers with exactly the kinds of capabilities they want them to have. We’re fortunate that we get to work with them to achieve this.

In December this year, we’re pleased to be able to offer a 112 hour opportunity for a small group of like-minded companies to learn more about one area where we’ve been helping our clients to develop their managers’ skill sets. Specifically, we’re going to be sharing how we’ve worked with them to increase the ability of their managers, team leaders, supervisors and others to unlock potential and maximise individual employee performance through effective one-to-one coaching.

If you also want to make strides developing managers in your organisation, we invite you to come meet us and learn more about what we do.

A chance to experience the difference

Our approach provides a different experience to conventional training, including e-learning. In this short ‘taster’ session, you’ll find out how we utilise a dynamic blend of live drama with professional actors (they play roles, so delegates don’t have to), multimedia filmed resources, electronic voting systems (measuring success), and highly skilled facilitation. It’s a highly interactive, powerful way to explore behaviours and learn new skills, one that’s going to be mainly of interest to Human Resources and Learning & Development professionals.

Learn all about

Attendees will get an instructive insight into our work with clients, and see how we enable delegates in our coaching skills training modules to:

  • Identify the features and impact of unproductive coaching techniques, demonstrated in an anti-model scenario (what coaching is not) that deals with inadequate preparation, ineffective questions, poor listening, judgemental criticism & feedback, telling not empowering;
  • Understand the 4 elements of the GROW coaching framework;
  • Formulate effective questions for each stage of GROW;
  • Apply effective questioning to the scenario situation; and
  • Observe the positive outcomes of applying the GROW model.

Join us

We’re proud of what we’ve done with our clients to develop practical skills, such as coaching, among their leaders. As we want to spread the benefits more widely, we’re putting on this ‘taster’ session for free on 6 December 2016 in Reading (venue to be confirmed). However, since we’re not charging, that does mean that we will have to limit the number of places available to just 15 people. The session will run from 10.30am till 12.00pm (refreshments and registration from 10.15am)

Save me a seat

Even though there is no charge for the session, we ask that you don’t book lightly as spaces are limited and others will definitely miss out. Should you have to cancel for unavoidable reasons, please let us know as soon as possible before the event so that we can offer your place to people on the waiting list.

Any questions, please feel free to contact Dee Richardson via email or call 01484 310234.
