Leadership Coaching Workshops

This workshop is for leaders who wish to build on their existing expertise. The sessions will be highly interactive and experiential and there will be practice, reflection and theoretical input.  There will be no role-play!

The facilitator will focus on working with emergent needs and issues of the learning group. There will be opportunity to briefly explore a few coaching and mentoring models/tools and to gain skills to facilitate ongoing personal and professional development in self and others. The facilitator aims to inspire, empower challenge and support participants towards effectiveness and wellbeing.
