About the course

One of the key qualities of highly successful leaders is the ability to mentor and coach effectively. This course increases the confidence and productivity of leaders, supervisors and managers who may be scientific or technical specialists, but have minimal training in the science and art mentoring and coaching effectively. They will learn the GROW Model, which assures that any coaching or mentoring session is effective and productive.

This training is designed to be highly interactive with a mix of theory and practical sessions (group problem-solving/planning, experiential practice with role-playing of varying difficulty scenarios, interactive discussions & application exercises). Participants will emerge from the training having the knowledge and skills to become much more effective coaches and mentors. Also, they will know how to use the tools and techniques to drive staff motivators, ownership, productivity and effectiveness in their workplaces.
