Leader as Coach

It's so much more than a 1-day workshop

This is a unique cohort of our Leader as Coach programme designed specifically for CEO’s, Directors, Senior Executives and senior HR /L&D professionals

This highly pragmatic programme will provide delegates with skills and tools to be able to coach 'on the job' and 'in the moment'.  It's not a 'pink and fluffy' 1-day training programme - it is is targeted firmly on leveraging coaching to enhance business performance.

If you're looking for a low cost way to 'test' Notion then this is a great course to attend.  Not only will delegates learn new skills that will have an immediate impact on their organisation, you'll also experience the quality of our courses / materials and get to know us a little better in the process.

"An extremely valuable 8 hours - really opened my eyes to thinking more about Coaching vs Managing / Doing. Will absolutely use aspects learned today in my working life... and I am sure this will have a positive impact on the development of my people".

Oliver Meakin, Brand Operations Director, Mitchells & Butlers

By the end of the programme delegates will be able to: 

  • Learn and understand a new coaching approach (that they can use ‘on the job’ and ‘in the moment’ with all staff)
  • Recognise when it is appropriate to coach or use another styleUtilise and role model a coaching style with greater confidence
  • Better resolve some of the issues they face, having had time to reflect on and be coached on them
  • Resolve issues faster across the leadership team and with direct reportsIncrease their effectiveness in their role
  • Be clear how to promulgate a coaching culture within an organisation

"Very good tool for creating a culture of thinkers rather than followers"

Martin Davies, General Manager of Catering (ICC), NEC Group
