Is managing people the most time consuming/draining part of your working day? Do you wish everyone could just get on with their jobs and each other without needing your input? Why are some people easier to manage than others? Is it possible to develop your team whilst also developing yourself?
This course introduces the theory and practice of coaching as an approach to managing individuals and teams. It provides space for consideration of some of the more complex and challenging issues relating to relationships and communication at work. Delegates will develop their understanding of the coaching process and will be encouraged to practise applying the theory in their own workplace environments. They will therefore develop confidence and competence in applying a situational (flexible) leadership approach to ongoing development of themselves and their teams. This course is about helping delegates and their teams reach their full potential in the complex and challenging veterinary workplace.
Why do this course?
This is a highly practical course designed to help you get more from your team through taking a coaching approach to line management and leadership. You will learn how to create environments (for yourself and others) that optimise thinking, learning and performance. Through developing your conversational toolkits, you will be better able to manage communication and teamwork in challenging and emotionally charged situations. Your improved understanding of adult learning and development will allow you to match your leadership and communication style to individuals and/or teams, so that each person can feel confident, perform at their best and enjoy their work.
You will learn how to listen so that others really talk and talk so that others really listen. You will broaden and deepen you understanding of adult learning and development in order to match your leadership and communication style to individuals and/or teams, so that each person can feel confident, perform at their best and enjoy their work
