Use coaching skills for sustainable success at an individual and organisational level

Brought to you by Coaching@GIBS – the business of being human

The GIBS Leader as Coach course will equip you with professionally aligned coaching skills that can be easily embedded in your current managerial style. Leader as Coach means developing high-performing and motivated teams for sustainable and impactful business results.

As a leader, you want your organisational success to be built from team collaboration. You want to be an inclusive leader that is approachable, accountable and self-aware. It is possible to achieve high levels of performance as a human-centric and empathetic leader.

It requires something different.

Coaching is key to distinguishing highly effective leaders and managers from average ones. The power of coaching offers a new way of leading individuals for collective change, improved accountability, innovative thinking and increased agility, resulting in improved relationships and results.

Leaders and managers who leverage coaching skills are increasingly sought after as they possess the capabilities that are deemed highly relevant within organisations.

This course, is led by Tanya Stevens - GIBS' Professional Associate and founder of BeClear, an executive coaching and human advisory business. Tanya is accredited with the International Coach Federation (PCC).
