Take your management role to the next level: become a coach

Managers with supervisory responsibilities play a pivotal role in the success of an organization. They determine to what extent the business plan is put into action, whether the organizational climate is positive and whether key individuals stay or leave. Underperformance in any of these three areas is not an option in today’s competitive business world.

In response to these realities, this seminar has been running for over 10 years, helping to meet the needs of organizations and individuals interested in ditching the traditional supervisory mindset rooted in authority and control and embracing a broader, more proactive coaching framework.
