The power of coaching has been recognised in many areas for many years. Effective managers and leaders regard coaching skills as vital to their personal effectiveness.

In the 27 page workbook, learners will use the GROW coaching model to help build a greater understanding of how coaching models are used and how they can help them develop their team members. It also looks at other coaching models to see what they have in common, so that learners can develop a model that suits them.
A coaching model is the underlying structure that can be used when coaching someone. The workbook also explores some of the key coaching skills, such as; asking the right questions and how to listen effectively.
