The Client’s Goal
A large manufacturer and global exporter requested a Managers’ Coaching Skills program , as part of a change management initiative, to prepare its supervisors for the future. The program’s goal: to incorporate the use of Solution Focused Coaching in their everyday life with their team.
We designed a coaching program that would enable participants to use solution focused coaching with their team, by including practical examples, personalized coaching sessions and tailor-made exercises. At the same time, we introduced a strength-based assessment that helps managers to identify their own strengths & raise self-awareness into using them in their role.
