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.
