Improving and Sustaining High Performance
An innovative programme for aspiring Coaches
“With managers under pressure to do more with less there is a strong focus on team and individual performance. Organisations are turning to coaching to help improve performance and build internal coaching capacity rather than relying on external suppliers. There is a shift in role from the “manager as expert” to the “manager as coach”. (ILM Research Report 2013)
(leading to the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM)
Level 5 Certificate in Coaching and Mentoring)
A manager with a coaching style of leadership can engage staff more effectively and inspire them to a higher level of performance. It is not only about coaching for improving performance, but creating a team of people who display the behaviours and attitudes necessary to deliver a quality service and who willingly accept accountability for their area of responsibility.
An autocratic management approach can work and get results, but the drawback is that employees can be disengaged, become outwardly submissive and inwardly rebellious and the potential to do “more with less” is lost.
This practical programme enables participants to develop the knowledge, attitudes, behaviours and practical skills to become inspirational leaders and motivate their staff to achieve new levels of performance. As a result, participants will feel more in control, less stressed and confident that their staff are working together to achieve a common purpose.
By completing this programme, you will:
• Learn how to improve your competence as a leader and coach.
• Apply the principles of effective coaching and leadership.
• Apply your learning to real business situations.
• Develop and maintain a constructive and productive relationship with your team.
• Use proven coaching tools and strategies to build your team.
• Continuously improve team and individual performance.
• Improve and sustain morale and motivation in yourself and your team.
• Increase self awareness of your leadership style and its impact on others.
• Be able to have meaningful and constructive coaching conversations to enable performance improvement.
• Increase your confidence and assertiveness when having difficult conversations with others.
• Achieve an internationally recognised qualification in Coaching.
The programme is delivered in 5 separate, one-day sessions, spread over a 10 week period, to allow practical application of the learning between sessions. Each session is highly interactive to allow you to explore, discuss and understand the theories behind coaching and leadership and to practice the models and techniques in a safe and non-threatening environment.
Upon completion of the programme and the successful assessment of all assignments, participants will achieve the ILM L5 Certificate in Coaching and Mentoring.
Each participant will receive a course manual to support them throughout the programme and provide a reference document to be used long after the course is completed.
This programme can also be delivered in-house.
