Coaching for Leaders

Build coaching into your leadership style

About this Programme

Over the last ten years, coaching has been increasingly recognised as a highly effective method for improving development, staff retention and employee engagement. Our Coaching for Leaders programme focuses on developing a leadership style that embraces coaching. 

We teach you the practical techniques and theoretical models of effective coaching and challenge you to examine your personal leadership approach. This leads to the discovery of practical ways to integrate coaching into your daily responsibilities as a way of increasing the performance and engagement of your teams.


What to expect

You will learn the core models and techniques of high quality coaching. You will also study the theoretical underpinnings behind coaching, allowing your personal coaching practice to move beyond a mere management tool - becoming a mechanism for increased learning and higher performance.

Participants should expect to:

  • understand the psychological basis of coaching
  • practice non directive and directive styles in coaching and mentoring
  • be able to identify and execute coaching, mentoring and manager roles in different situations
  • establish rapport and build trust based relationship
  • use coaching for high performance
  • add practical coaching tools to their leadership toolbox


This programme is delivered virtually, with 6 four-hour sessions spread over 11 weeks. 

The structure enables leaders to fit the learning into their working day, and also gives time for embedding of learning in between the sessions, as well as time for preparation for the following session. 

There is a group supervision session at the end of the programme, in which your progress as a coach is reviewed and specific topics about coaching are discussed and practiced.

The programme is accredited with EMCC, so participants will receive their EQA or EIA Foundation award, upon producing a small portfolio of evidence. For those not wishing to obtain their EQA award, a certificate of attendance will be issued.
