Do you wish to develop your leadership style using coaching techniques and approaches? Would you like to improve your ability to motivate and support others to improve their performance?

This introductory course, delivered in two half-day sessions, has been designed for those wishing to enhance leadership skills and/or to use coaching to improve collaborative working, communication and professional relationships.

A coaching style of leadership is about learning not to lead in the traditional sense but more to facilitate others to come up with their own solutions. The leader holds more questions than answers and aims to develop the problem-solving muscle of teams, rather than being the one who solves the problems, thereby building greater capacity and engagement in those they work with.

Previous participants have included those working in the creative industries, charities, local government, arts, heritage and education sectors - as well as many freelancers and artists - in a wide varierty of roles, and at all different stages of their careers from apprentices to CEOs!
