Coaching Skills for Technical Managers and Leaders

Why should you choose the Coaching Skills for Technical Managers and Leaders

This course will improve your understanding of what coaching is, specifically targeted to the technical mind-set, giving you the skills to coach and motivate your team to high performance and get results.

According to research, those in technical roles, typically possess a drive to analyse and explore a system, figuring out how things work, processes or what the underlying causes. These are great skills to have and many of the world’s best companies have discovered how to get the best from this kind of person. On the contrary being a great coach is all about empathy and asking powerful questions which guide the person being coached through the issue.

Add to this the fact that some in tech role can also be highly creative (picture Bill Gates) and have the ability to focus with great intensity in one area and also see innovative ideas, patterns and possibilities that would likely be missed by the rest of us.

Who should attend this course?

Our workshop is aimed primarily at those who are responsible for managing and leading 'technical' teams. The course will be beneficial to both existing managers and those who are transitioning or interested in moving into a leadership and management role. It will also be of interest to anyone who needs to bridge the communication gap between front end sales and the technical team.
