Appraisal Skills

This course is essential for anyone who has responsibility for carrying out appraisals.

Coaching Levels 1, 2 & 3

Coaching Fundamentals Level 1

The Competent Coach Level 2

Advanced Coaching Skills Level 3

There are many benefits of coaching conversations to both the organisation and employee. Coaching offers the opportunity to improve individual performance, set targets and goals as well as increase openness to personal learning and development. Coaching gives the individual the ability to identify solutions to specific work-related issues and have greater ownership and responsibility as well as development of self-awareness.

Our coaching programmes give you the fundamental skills, models and techniques to be able to have effective coaching conversations; they do not qualify you as an accredited coach. This course is highly recommended to those who are responsible for undertaking appraisals.
