Alternatively, depending on your needs, our unique EssentialsPLUS service may be of assistance to you.

The EssentialsPLUS component in your case would be an appropriate focus on coaching as it applies to your environment, see:: EssentialsPLUS Explanation.

Derek Stockley presents a coaching skills training program in central Melbourne, Victoria which provides participants with the opportunity to update and enhance their coaching skills as a team leader or manager. The coaching skills course is also available in Sydney.

Other public courses are shown at: Public Training Courses.

Coaching skills are essential

Participants will be able to:

  • Understand the role of the coach
  • Effectively prepare and conduct coaching discussions
  • Work with team members to improve their performance

This program is for people holding or moving into team leader or management roles, or people established in those roles, but who have not had any formal coaching training.

The course is needs based. You cover the coaching skills techniques and ideas, but a substantial component involves practical exercises that let you focus on the management of issues most important to you.

  • The role of the coach
  • Understanding the principles of behaviour change, and the barriers to change

  • Teaching a skill or process
  • When training is not the answer
  • Communication skills for coaches
  • Setting effective goals
  • Preparing to coach
