Coaching – training course

Course Overview

Effective leaders coach their people to achieve excellence for themselves and their teams.  Research has found that organisations with senior leaders who coach effectively and frequently improve their business results by over 20% compared to those who never coach.

This course focusses on coaching skills for managers to enable leaders to unlock the potential of their team through questions.

Our interactive, two-hour training courses get straight to the heart of a topic and provide actionable steps to implement the key learning points.

Courses are delivered in-company by our subject experts either face-to-face or virtually.

Participants on coaching will be able to

  • Define what coaching is and when it should be used
  • Determine when coaching would work in their own team
  • Explain when it is appropriate to “tell” rather than coach
  • Implement GROW model to release the potential of team members
  • Use coaching to drive forward the skills and output of their team.

Attendees say 

“I really learned a lot from this session and am happy with the framework and questions as I struggle to stay in a coaching format and switch to supporting and advise giving often. This will be a great tool for me to implement where needed and help me stay on track when staff will benefit more from coaching.”

Our clients say

“The sessions are extremely engaging and Paul is always happy to mold the training sessions to suit our individual business and staff.”

Lucy Partner, Head of Partnerships and Client Accounts, Yoke Network

I’m glad we decided to go ahead with this, the importance of investing in your team is that much greater in an increasingly remote & distributed workplace.

Very interesting content and applicable in real-life situations. The trainer was excellent – knowledgeable, engaging and entertaining.

The 1-1 coaching sessions were incredibly valuable and led to a significant increase in effectiveness at work. I would have no hesitation in recommending Paul for 1-1 coaching.

Fast-paced, interesting, relevant, and practical content. Good structure of talking and breakouts, the time flew by.

Just another thank you from me for today’s session. Went down really well and people were talking about the models and continuing the discussion throughout the afternoon.

Paul has exceptional ability to take on and manage complex and sensitive programmes with an eye to the constraints of budget. The quality of advice to the business-leaders was first-rate. I would not hesitate to work with Paul and his organisation again.

- Stephen Bates MD - Managing HR Initiatives

I value working in partnership. We have built a relationship that has led to pilots, tweaks and better results. I would recommend BiteSize Learning for their delivery and understanding of client’s needs.

I think it gave many people some tools to be much more confident in interacting, which was exactly the aim!”
