Solution Focus
Leader as Coach

Online Program with Annette Gray

Coaching is a key skill for managers, leaders and safety professionals to get the best out of every team member. When managers become a coach, not a boss, employee engagement and performance improve. Improving the coaching skills of one manager has an exponential effect in your workplace, as it increases employee performance, engagement, wellbeing and buy-in to your goals.

Program participants will be able to have coach-like conversations the very next day that will build respect, inclusive teamwork and improve organisational culture. It is a highly practical program where the focus is on watching demonstrations of coaching and lots of practice and support to implement the new learning.

This session will cover the three key elements that make coaching work:

  • Solution Focus Coaching Model and Solution Focused Tools that support this model
  • Key conversational skills
  • Coaching Way of Being (Emotional Intelligence)
