Coaching Benefits

Managers can use coaching to enhance the performance of individuals and teams, and to create positive, directed change.

It is focused on learning “on the job” and is designed to help individuals develop skills and competencies in a focussed, structured, measurable, achievable and supported way. It also encourages life-long learning.

Coaching helps managers move from transactional to transformational styles that empower staff to take on more leadership roles and responsibilities. It can play a crucial role in building the capacity and capability of the workforce.
