CMI Unit 612 Coaching Skills for Leaders
About this course
Coaching skills for leaders are an essential toolkit for increasing the skills and motivation of your team members.
Coaching is a powerful learning and development tool. Used effectively, it is able to optimise individual and team performance and the achievement of organisational goals. Coaching skills enable professional managers and leaders to support, motivate and empower individuals and teams in a conversational and insightful way.
