A learning and development opportunity for current coaches or leaders who coach in school or who use coaching techniques as part of their leadership style.

The Coaching Masterclass for Leaders workshop will provide leaders and coaches with increased confidence in their coaching skills. We will reflect on the challenges and successes of coaching and enable participants to practice and receive feedback on their coaching style. We will explore a range of current and effective coaching tools to enhance the skill set of the coach. The workshop will also explore the skills associated with coaching and facilitating whole teams and how coaching can be used to engage colleagues, align goals, and provide a method to manage difficult conversations.

We will reflect on some current thought leadership in coaching practice, informed by up to date organisational research relating to the effectiveness of coaching in enhancing individual and team performance. This will include a consideration of coaching different and more challenging people, and how to identify and coach people with diverse strengths and capabilities within the team environment.
