Effective Coaching Skills for Leaders

According to Lazslo Bock, at Google “being a good coach” is top of their list of the 8 key behaviours of a great manager and leader.

In this one-day workshop, you will learn how to place your people at the heart of what you do by developing your coaching skills. Learn from your own personal insights and our experiences at Happy to enhance your ability to coach those around you to become more motivated and find their own solutions.

The Small Print

For Face-to-Face Live Online Learning

All learners will need to install Zoom on their machines. Full technical requirements are on the Zoom website. Your link will be included in your joining instructions once you have booked your place — if you haven't received this email then please contact our team.

The Zoom sessions will be roughly 2 hours long and include a short break. You should reserve out 10am to 4pm in your diary for the learning. This will allow you to join the interactive workshops and have time to reflect and do the assignments in between. We believe immersing yourself in the content for a whole day will create deep learning and lasting impact. 

Learners should log into the training session 10 minutes before the start time to ensure that they have downloaded and set up Zoom correctly. The course will start precisely on time and it may not be possible to go back over material missed by late arrivals.

Your active participation is expected: everyone will be heard and seen throughout, just as they would be if we were in a room together. To be heard, hear and seen you will need a microphone, speakers and camera — if you have a modern laptop that’s all you will need. Remember, you’ll need a quiet place to call from and a decent internet connection is a must.

Please ensure you read our Terms and Conditions before booking for our payment terms and cancellation policy.

For classroom sessions

The course will run from 10am to 4:30pm (lunch is served 1pm to 1:45pm — we offer a choice of 3 cold bowl dishes). Please be careful to arrive by 9.45am for registration and refreshments. The course will start precisely on time and it may not be possible to go back over material missed by late arrivals. If you arrive over 30 minutes late you may be asked to leave and attend another day.

Please ensure you read our Terms and Conditions before booking for our payment terms and cancellation policy.

The happy Guarantee

We want everyone to go away from our courses feeling as though they have learnt useful, practical skills that they can use straight away when they go back to work.

If you don’t feel that your training has been useful or if you are unhappy in any way, please get in touch with our Customer Services team within 30 days of the course. We will be happy to offer you additional support and training free of charge to help you to gain the skills you need, or if you’d prefer, a full refund.

Coronavirus Update

Due to current government guidelines we have temporarily closed our training centre in London. All of our staff are now working remotely, and all classroom training has been postponed until further notice.

We have developed a fantastic range of interactive webinars delivered by our experienced facilitators, Live Online Learning. You can see details of our IT Skills live online learning sessions here and our Personal Development sessions here – or we can adapt any of our classroom training into webinar format for you.

For the latest government guidance, please visit the gov.uk website.

We will continue to monitor the situation and will advise all clients if the situation changes.

If you have any questions or concerns, or would like to arrange some online training, our friendly team are available Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm. You can leave a message on 020 7375 7300 or email us at hello@happy.co.uk.

Did you know...

...at Google, coaching was shown to be the single most effective attribute of their successful leaders?

Many leaders are abandoning appraisals. They're too infrequent and one-sided. A coaching culture, by contrast, allows you to give regular feedback in short discussions, thereby motivating staff to improve performance.

Happy offers a number of other leadership and management programmes, including:

Becoming a Multiplier to enable you to inspire great performances from your people and drive extraordinary results. Find out more

Managing Change Positively to enable you to support your team through change and provide a clear understanding of how to involve people. Find out more
