Is this your experience?

    • You’re still involved in too much detail, still finding yourself involved in problem solving and having to take responsibilities, which you feel your people/team should be taking. This is frustrating, stressful, and adds to your pressure.
    • If you are in a HR role, are you finding yourself supporting managers who are facing these challenges and you are wondering how to better build their capacity to deal with these challenges.
    • If you are in a senior leadership position, you see your managers involved in their own functions and not being able to connect with their peers and be more collaborative, not able to focus on the bigger picture and take a strategic perspective, and you are really concerned about the team’s capacity to provide organisational leadership into the future.
    • Your current approaches may incorporate being directive, caring and supportive, being hands on, and even hands off.  You are experiencing that you are not getting what you need from your people/staff/team. And you are wondering what needs to change

Join this webinar and learn about how incorporating a coaching approach will address these challenges

    • Hear about how, through a coaching approach, you can:
    • Tune into the untapped potential and talent that is within your people;
    • Change your approach to working with people so you release and develop this talent;
    • Provide the support and challenge your people need to change and grow;
    • Collaborate and be strategic in your approach to working with others.
