1 Full Day  |  .6 CEUs

Coaching Skills for Managers (CSL) is for busy managers who are expanding their management and leadership through adding coaching skills. CSL prepares you to have effective coaching conversations focusing on issues related to individual and team performance, growth and development. This training gives you quick, effective, and reliable approaches to build your coaching skills. You will learn and practice with tools that increase your ability to have coaching conversations that motivate and inspire, help others see a new perspective, and give feedback that drives performance.

Coaching skills and their impact on performance are measured in key ways before and during the course:

  1. Coaching Self-Assessment — identifies the depth of personal experience with coaching
  2. Action Feedback — Questions that gather information on what's working, best practices, actions being taken and challenges

In this one-day training participants will:

  • Understand what the distinctions are between coaching, advising, mentoring
  • Have a tool to determine if someone is coachable
  • Distinguish between managing and coaching
  • Identify desired behavioral shifts
  • Learn and practice four fundamental coaching practices
  • Leave with a plan for sustainability

You will practice coaching with real life scenarios in a four-phase coaching model that provides a structure for your coaching conversations. In rehearsals, you will practice and receive feedback on what worked, what was challenging and key learnings.


This program is designed for anyone with direct reports and anyone who wants to increase self-awareness and bring out the best from others.
