How Effective Coaching Can Empower Your Leaders

Leadership is not just a position/title but a mindset and set of behaviours that requires unleashing your inner leader with intentional effort and a commitment to personal growth. Great performers get the opportunity to step into leadership roles in order to grow in their career. The problem, though, is that there is often not much time to train them properly, and the struggle suddenly becomes real for the new leader. In the worst case scenario, you could lose a great employee that had potential.

Coaching is a great way to help develop the leadership potential of your new leads. Basic coaching techniques can help them reflect on themselves, raise their self-awareness, and understand what is important to them. As a result, they can make better decisions and gain confidence and to unlock their full leadership potential. 

In this workshop, leadership coach, Marina Jónsdóttir, will inspire workshop attendees to embrace coaching methods as a powerful tool for developing their teams by going through fundamental coaching techniques and interactive exercises.
