What makes this leadership course different from the rest?

In partnership with PCC coach John Squire, we've designed this course with behaviour change in mind.


How many times have you been on leadership courses in NZ, learned some great tips but didn’t put in place half of what you discovered?

This programme is different because it embeds the habit during the actual training period. The programme takes place virtually, with sessions staggered over a 2 month period. So, you're fully supported to implement this approach over the course of the programme.

The programme aims to: 

  • Give you the tools, skills, and motivation to become more coach-like in your interactions.

  • Encourage you to ask more, and to tell less, in order to facilitate a higher level of engagement in all interactions.

  • Assists you to find ways of being that unlocks potential in yourself and others.

On completion of the programme you will:

  • Understand the benefits of a more coach-like mindset

  • Engage in workplace coaching conversations using an easy to use process

  • Know when to, (and when not to), have a coaching conversation

  • Be aware of what the research says about the efficacy and frequency of these conversations

  • Be well practised in a simple coaching conversation framework

  • Understand the core components of great communication

  • Develop a plan to create a coaching habit.

What makes being coach-like important?

You know the importance of good leadership in an age of uncertainty and flux. The dynamic world we live in highlights the huge difference between good and great leaders and organisations.

You're constantly asked to do more with less - so working smarter is vital.

Research highlights that the best leaders don't use just one style of leadership. Instead they're skilled in several styles and can switch between them depending on the circumstances.

One of the most effective styles is the Coaching approach

The Manager as Coach programme dispels the myth that managerial coaching takes a lot of time. This programme teaches you how to have meaningful coach-like conversations in as little as ten minutes.

Through hundreds of hours of coaching managers in leadership positions, I've come to see first hand, that success in leading others lies in having a leadership style that flexes according to the needs of the situation and the individual.

coach-like conversations?

The coach-like style of leadership has proven effective in organisations focused on the growth and development of their people. It's based on a mindset that empowers others and develops a growth mindset, builds relationships and leads to collective success.

Just imagine … developing the skills to empower and get the best out of your team, one conversation at a time.
