Organisations, more than ever before, need the skills and principles of coaching in order to develop a culture that is inclusive, accountable, innovative and agile. Organisations with these qualities are better able to handle the complexity and speed of change of today’s business environment. Research clearly indicates that organisations with coaching capability and a coaching-inspired culture are more likely to be high performing, more equipped to handle change and experience better financial performance and growth than other organisations within their industry sector.
Leaders, managers and individual contributors from all business functions will benefit greatly from this programme. Good coaching skills enable anyone who needs to develop, influence and communicate effectively with others, whether inside or outside of the organisation to achieve greater success.
