Coaching skills can help you build positive and effective working relationships with all those you work with.


This workshop will introduce you to the role of coaching and coaching skills in the workplace, and when and how to use the skills.
It will also introduce you to an accessible coaching model to help you structure coaching conversations where and when appropriate. 
You will have the opportunity to take part in a practice coaching conversation using your own real-life examples, topics or challenges. Please be ready to share one topic with just two or three colleagues in the group. This may be a problem or decision you want to work through, clarity on career choices, a work relationship you want to improve, or any area of work where you would like to develop your confidence – anything you would like to look at and do not mind sharing in a supportive and confidential space.


Engaging with this session will enable you to

  • Have an understanding of what coaching is and when it can be used
  • Be able to use coaching skills appropriately in your work relationships
  • Be able to apply the GROW coaching model appropriately to structure coaching conversations
