Coaching style

Overview

Last Published  01 August 2012

This tool is a short self-reflection exercise that challenges managers to adopt more of a coaching style of communication in three common situations.

Using the tool will enable a greater understanding of coaching, provide a dialogue with others about the value of a more coaching approach to communications, and create a brief plan to apply a different style to three situations: 
  • responding to common requests 
  • setting targets/delegating tasks 
  • running a team meeting 
Tool aims
  • To help managers understand what is meant by 'a coaching style' 
  • To challenge managers to practise applying more of a coaching style to three common situations.
