Most of us will be familiar with the word 'coaching'. We'll almost certainly have heard it in relation to sport and possibly we'll know the terms 'life coaching' or 'career' coaching'. Many companies talk about how they have a 'coaching culture', but it's sometimes hard to work out exactly what this means. The word 'coaching' often gets misinterpreted as meaning 'telling someone what to do'. In fact, nothing could be further from the truth. By considering some well-known coaching models, this workshop will look at some practical steps that you can take to develop your own coaching skills that you can use to help not only your colleagues or team at work but also your family and friends when they are 'stuck' and are unsure how to move on with whatever they are doing.

About Me

I am a Master Practitioner of NLP and have been working in corporate training for over 30 years now. During that time, I have been lucky enough to work with people from all over the world both at home and abroad, adapting to the cultural needs and different approaches to learning. I have worked with companies in a variety of industries including aviation, rail and bus transportation, contact centres, Human Resources and retail.

Whether you are a Team Leader, Supervisor, Manager or Leader looking to get the most from your team, someone looking to improve their skills in order to improve in your current job or help set yourself up for a new job, or a front-line employee looking to deliver a great experience for your customers, I have a variety of training sessions that will help you. If you are looking for something specific that is not on my list of subjects, please do contact me and I will be happy to try and assist you.

I really do believe that learning should be fun. That means that any training session with me will be interesting, engaging and will use a variety of techniques. For example, I might present some information, you might complete a questionnaire, we might have a discussion and you might have the opportunity to practise your skills in a case study. Most importantly, at the end of every training session, I want you to be able ‘to do something’ and not just ‘know about something’.

Each Learned.Live teacher is awarded a 4 star review for every one of their courses we have approved, in line with our assessment. This is why some teachers will display more than one 4 star review from Learned.Live if they have had multiple courses rigorously assessed by our team. We would not approve a course application if we did not feel it warranted a default 4 star review. Teacher star ratings are an average of each of their courses star ratings and will become modified as more students review their course(s) over time.
