Unlocking the full potential of its employees is key to any company that aims to develop a sustainable competitive advantage. For this it is important that employees feel connected, competent and autonomous in their job and in their relations at work.
You, as a manager, play a crucial role in exhibiting leadership behavior, such as support, mentoring and coaching to facilitate problem-solving and to promote the development of the people in your organisation.
As a coaching leader you will learn to partner with employees in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximise their personal and professional potential.
In this course you will develop the following competences:
- Establishing trust: the ability to create a safe and supportive environment that produces ongoing mutual respect and trust
- Coaching presence: the ability to be fully present and create spontaneous interactions with the employee in a way that is open, flexible and confident
- Active & generative listening: the ability to focus completely on what the employee is saying and is not saying (on a content level), to get the underlying emotions, and to communicate this actively
- Asking powerful questions: the ability to ask questions that challenge the employee to take responsibility for their own problems and generate new insights and awareness
