Are you looking to bring out the best in the people around you within your workplace? If so, this invaluable introduction to coaching is perfect for you. Not only is it a great introduction, but also a solid foundation in which to adopt a ‘coaching management style’.
Run as it features here, or run in-house where the content can be tailored to suit your organisational needs; cost effective if a number of people require training.
