Coaching & Mentoring

Leader as Coach/Mentor Programme

EMCC Accredited Programme Level 5 Certificate in Coaching and Mentoring

Training and development in the workplace has seen a significant directional shift in recent years.  Businesses are recognising that when it comes to sharing experience and knowledge there is no greater resource than their own staff.  It is for this reason that in-house coaching has seen rapid growth with employers keen to develop existing talent into the roles of coaches/mentors.

Within all levels of an organisation, coaching and mentoring will not only improve performance but develop ideas, increase confidence, enable people to grow and face new challenges and form cohesive relationships.

Our leader as coach/mentor programme delivers the foundation which is at the heart of bringing out the very best in your teams.
