Coaching for Leaders
Why a Leadership Course From Erickson?
Erickson has been an international leader in Coach Training since 1980. Over the years, Erickson has been approached by numerous leaders looking for coaching techniques as an add-on to their already existing leadership skills within their workplace.
For this very reason, Erickson has designed the course Coaching Competencies for Leaders with an empathy of the challenges that leaders face day to day. This quick but powerful coaching for leaders course focuses on teaching fundamental coaching skills that apply in both a 1to1 and team scenario.
The coaching for leaders course develops coaching techniques as a leadership tool, resulting in skilled and effective leadership. By immediately implementing the newly acquired concepts with customers, peers and colleagues, the knowledge is transmitted within the environment, and a coaching culture manifests.
Coaching Competencies for Leaders allows managerial staff and leaders in any capacity and their organisations to create a change from a ‘command and conquer’ approach to an accountable coaching relationship. Organisations and their teams will uncover and experience more communication, fewer troubles and conflicts, meaningful employee interaction, more productivity in work output and improved business figures. The course content and delivery deal with real-life cases and events. Solution-Focused coaching is utilised as a fundamental tool to resolve these scenarios. Leaders of all types of different organisations are welcome to join in this course to develop their leadership abilities, share their knowledge and experience and grow with other excellent leaders from around the world.
