Many managers don’t understand how critical coaching is for their people’s development, growth, and performance. Our leadership coaching program, Coaching Essentials®, teaches your managers how to coach their employees effectively—not just manage them—to increase productivity, create an environment of trust and autonomy, and deliver better bottom-line results.
We know you want your managers to be as effective as possible in developing their team members, and our Coaching Essentials program can help.
Our program teaches coaching skills for managers using a practical training method designed to give your managers the mindset, essential skills, and structured process they need to accelerate development and bring out the best in their people.
Blanchard’s program teaches essential coaching skills that align with the core coaching competencies defined by the International Coaching Federation. Blanchard’s experienced Master Certified Coaches, who have worked with managers for over 20 years, lead the course.
With a coaching style of leadership, your managers will become great managers that know how to develop their people and achieve better results for your business.
We can deliver Coaching Essentials in-person, as virtual sessions, as part of a learning journey, or delivered in a self-directed online version, so your leaders can develop their coaching skills wherever they are and whenever they have time.
