From manager to coach

Strengths-Based team coaching starts with the manager; you can make the biggest difference to the effectiveness of any team.  You play a crucial role in the process of introducing a strength-based culture, so shifting your own style to that of a coach is essential. Your role will need to transition from one of strict managing to one that, instead, empowers employees - and not just around review time, but on a daily basis, by recognising, congratulating, and aligning strengths. By making a habit of this, employees are rewarded with timely feedback, as opposed to an annual review, which relies on hindsight and therefore wastes time, energy, and resources. 

Before we start looking at the team you will have 4 personal one to one coaching sessions with our Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach who will help you to; name, claim and aim your strengths. You will then be prepared to join your team for our dynamic course that combines a deep understanding of each team member’s strengths with an awareness of how these strengths can help the team achieve maximum effectiveness. 

Organisations often seek to enhance a team’s effectiveness as the organisation prepares for greater responsibilities, implements a significant organisational change, or absorbs new team members. This course will provide the executives, managers, supervisors and team members with insights into their strengths as individuals and team members.

Prior to the course, attendees will take the CliftonStrengths® Assessment, which is a series of 117 paired statements, used to identify each individual’s top five talent themes.
