to take more of a coaching approach to leadership...


Why take a Coaching Approach?

Coaching is a far more effective and emotionally intelligent style for leaders keen to build people capacity and boost bottom-line business results. Taking a coaching approach gives leaders a whole new way to relate to people – and can significantly improve productivity, relationships and the way people ‘warm-up’ to their jobs.

Many leaders would like to take more of a coaching approach but lack the know-how, confidence and support to do this.  A big step in making this transition is to equip leaders with simple tools and practice opportunities to learn some ways to make a start. That’s what The Coaching Leaders’ Cliniccoming up at Sunshine Coast University April 28-29 (Brisbane and other locations as below) – is designed to do.

You don’t have to spend big to become a certified coach

to be a coaching leader...

“I coach team members and found Bill’s Coaching Leaders Clinic well designed and delivered and extremely relevant to my needs. Course structure, content and tools were practical, useful and relevant. An effective learning experience – well done.”  Lisa C, HR Consultant, Queensland Police

 “Go and do The Coaching Leader’s Clinic. It is one of the best workshops I have done. It  gave me more self-confidence with how to use different coaching methods and the knowledge you gain even if just for self-development is fantastic! Course structure and content was excellent and the guidebook is well set out and  easy to use. I think this clinic is definitely something more people should do.” Danielle H - SQIT
