Recent ICF studies concluded that 70% of people undertaking executive coaching had an improvement in work performance and 51% with improvement in team effectiveness! The most effective leaders coach and are seen as a coaching resource.

This highly interactive 2-day workshop program is targeted at leaders who are looking to further develop in the skill of coaching. We will cover key coaching principles, the four leadership postures, communication skills and ways to motivate, empower and coach your team.

Executive coaching when done well can increase overall effectiveness in role by up to 18%.

The workshop is designed to suit the current level of coaching capability across attendees and will incorporate a large amount of time dedicated practicing these skills and mapping out a coaching plan to implement back on the job to bring the lessons to life!

My personal journey with coaching started informally when managing teams in a large FMCG multi-national company. As a senior leader, I was coached and I was empowered to coach my teams. I studied coaching, NLP and various other modalities and this opened my eyes to the amazing and profound world of coaching that led me to be doing what my team and I passionately do today. I have coached and equipped thousands of leaders and executives with the skills and tools to lead their teams effectively through coaching.

I often get asked what coaching is and I liken it to a partnership of assisting an individual or team to identify where they are, where they want to go and then all the magic happens in the gap in between. In a nutshell, coaching is a conversation between the leader and coachee to bridge that gap by the coach asking powerful questions and utilising a plethora of tools to empower the coachee to come up with their own answers and solutions. People own what they co-create and involvement is key: be the all “asking’ manager not the all “telling” manager.

I believe that if you want commitment, then coach, if you want compliance, then tell.

A leader as coach is someone who will assist individual and teams to identify blind spots, stretch their capabilities and professional strengths whilst coaching through change and development to be the best they can be!

Learn to coach one on one with individuals and to your team as a whole.

Coaching can:

  • Increase level of communication
  • Build stronger internal / external relationships
  • Improve time-management skills
  • Improve leadership growth and influencing skills
  • Lead to increased engagement and confidence
  • Improve specific skills focus
  • Assist with delegation and influencing of key stakeholders
  • Assist in organisational restructure or change
  • Contribute to individual succession planning
  • Enhance communication strategies, vision and action plan
  • Enhance team dynamics
  • And more!

ICF (International Coaching Federation) 2013 studies found that there was a dramatic lift in many areas of the organisation with those undergoing an executive coaching program.

  • 70% improvement on overall work performance
  • 51% increase in team effectiveness
  • 80% increase in self confidence
  • 73% had improved relationships at work
  • 72% had improvement in their communication skills
  • 67% had improved work life balance

I am passionate in equipping managers and leaders to be able to coach and always reinforce that coaching should not be remedial. Coaching can be a formal conversation or an informal 5 minute “coaching on the fly” chat to get to an outcome.

This 2-day program gives participants insights, coaching tools, methodologies and lessons that can be applied in the workplace with the time to practice and build this skill based on real time feedback during the workshop. They walk away with a plan to implement coaching to their teams and peers, in order to build accountability and ownership so the program is not just an event. We also offer a Train the Trainer Leader as Coach program to equip leaders to train on the skill of coaching to other managers back in the organisation.

Step into your leadership by guiding your team, empowering them and leveraging your time to create future leaders!

Create a “Coach Centric” culture, it all starts with you!

Renée has the very special ability of being able to connect with people while instructing, advising and coaching.

Highly recommend Renée for management and sales training as she can connect the two, as one, with the latest skills required to be successful.

Renée is one of the most effective and engaging trainers I have seen in a very long time. I had the privilege of attending one of her sessions and found it not only thought provoking but incredibly informative as well as useful in everyday life. She is an expert in the subject taught on the two days and even expanded to give even more insight. I would recommend Renée to anyone who asks.

The 2 days were interactive and Renée’s knowledge both as an accredited coach and facilitator gave the program so much depth, real stories we could relate to and her passion for coaching and building coaching cultures was undeniable.

Renée is a confident, professional and effective coach and trainer. I had the privilege to attend one of her sessions and found it refreshing. She knows her subject field and is very good in involving people in her discussions. Her coaching ability for managers is practical and easy to follow.
