Performance coaching Skills (Various formats)

Custom designed:

Quality, in-house training for your organisation’s needs


Many the most effective organisations in the world have strongly developed performance coaching cultures. This programme gets to the essence of what makes a good  performance coach. At its core is the principle that everybody in a line management or project role should have these vital skills in their toolkit. We believe that well developed performance coaching skills can make a huge difference to the productivity and effectiveness of work teams!

Performance coaching skills

“It is often much harder to give up instructing, than it is to learn coaching techniques”

“Coaching can occur spontaneously in a minute or in an hour long pre-arranged session”


“Building awareness, responsibility and self-belief are the goals of the line manager as coach”

We offer a range of in-house trainings:-

  • Overview to advanced "Level 2" coaching (1 day)
  • Introduction to "Level 2" coaching (2 days)
  • Developing advanced "Level 2" coaching skills (6 days in x3 sessions over 2 months)

Training Style:

Interactive, enjoyable  and thought provoking. The workshop uses inputs from the course leader, group and individual exercises, and simulated interviews.
