In professional settings, people must work with and through others to achieve goals. Coaching empowers people to take greater responsibility and ownership of their work. Coaching conversations are highly effective in influencing coachee thinking, feeling, and behaviour, leading to increase in performance and progress. This is especially relevant for technical supervisors, leaders and managers who want to build and maintain trust with team members, increase motivation and continuous service improvement.

Coaching helps the coachee to gain their own insights into a situation, usually on issues related to performance, development and decision-making. The process of questioning, listening, summarising, providing observations, feedback and summaries, enables the coachee to come up with the answers themselves. A successful coaching conversation is one that is open and honest, agenda and outcomes are owned and determined by the coachee, and helps the coachee to explore their situation, whilst building strengths and addressing weaknesses. 

This course is tailor made for technical staff in higher education. It accommodates various learning styles, to allow participants to learn from theory and practice, through group discussions and individual reflection. It will utilise hands-on activities and formative assessments to increase knowledge, competency and confidence for workplace impact.
