SOLVING THE 5 PROBLEMS
MOST MANAGERS FACE
ANY OF THESE SOUND FAMILIAR?
"I barely have time to do my own work - how can I confidently manage the tasks of my team members as well?!"
"I end up doing things myself because I can't trust that things will get done how I expect them to."
"I feel misunderstood and my team doesn't understand my communications."
"I struggle to have difficult conversations because I'm afraid of the repercussions."
"I'm frustrated because my team does not have the same level of ownership as I do."
If this sounds familiar, don't worry - you're not alone. Our Essential Coaching Skills training is designed to give you the actionable tools to break through these barriers and move to the next level as a leader and manager.
READY TO GO FROM OVERWHELMED MANAGER TO EMPOWERED LEADER?
As a leader, you'll often find your teams looking to you for answers - but when you act as a solution-database you exhaust your precious time & energy AND you rob your employees of opportunities to learn and exercise their creativity. This is what creates overwhelm for yourself and your team. When you are armed with essential coaching skills, you'll become a catalyst for employee development, business innovation and a results-oriented culture - all of that and you'll have time for lunch!
The most effective leaders learn to be great coaches. And coaching is a skill that anyone can learn. It's time to transform your potential into the real leadership you desire, take control of your career, and generate the results you want. The first step is to be willing to develop not only yourself, but also those around you. While you have likely achieved great things by yourself, you only truly unlock your potential when you learn to unlock the skills and talents of those you are leading - achieving more together than you can alone.
What is Essential Coaching Skills: Level 1?

This program was designed to give you hands-on, practical experience with powerful coaching skills that you can implement from day 1. We are here to guide you through the process and give you the support (and coaching) you need in a real-world, direct experience that you can apply to your role.
