Coaching Skills for GOVERNMENT AGENCIES
The fast way to raise performance and manage teams during COVID-19 and into ‘The New Normal’
Government agencies are under more pressure than ever before due to global economic factors, ever-increasing population growth and now the realities of adjusting to working through COVID-19 and adapting to ‘The New Normal’. The rise of increased media coverage means that government agencies are often in the spotlight and public expectations have never been higher.
To support government agencies, we have developed tailored leadership development programmes that equip managers working in the public sector with the practical skills they need to coach their teams to enhanced levels of performance across a wide range of metrics that matter to you and the stakeholders you work so hard to serve.
We bring a fresh approach to coach training that is practical, logical and immediately do-able. The unique structure of our coach training programme, including daily support and guidance through our LEDA Coaching App, reflects our philosophy that coaching is a powerful habit of communication.
Choose between our three programmes, all of which are specially tailored to help you achieve your public-sector goals:
- ‘Managing the New Normal – Recognised Leader as Coach’ Award (2 Days), British-Certificated, In-House or 100% ONLINE
- ‘Managing the New Normal – Coaching Skills for Leaders’ Full Award (2 Days + 6 Weeks Guided Practice + 1 Day Showcase), British-Certificated, In-House or 100% ONLINE
- ‘1 to 1 Executive Coaching Development Programme’ (5-20 sessions), In-House or 100% ONLINE
Who will benefit from this training?
These programmes are designed to develop a coaching culture across government agencies, so the practical skills are equally valuable to senior executives, directors and first-time team leaders seeking to enhance the productivity, creativity and engagement of the teams they manage.
During the programme participants will gain the skills needed to use leadership coaching as an efficient tool to enhance team performance to achieve and exceed your organisational KPIs.
Is learning to coach now an essential management skill?
Even before the COVID-19 virus changed the way we work forever, there was a realisation that the old style of management was becoming less effective in the digitally driven economies we work in. Here’s what the Harvard Business Review study reported November 2019 in the article ‘The Leader as Coach’ by Herminia Ibarra and Anne Scoular:
“As a manager, you knew what needed to be done, you taught others how to do it, and you evaluated their performance. Command and control was the name of the game, and your goal was to direct and develop employees who understood how the business worked and were able to reproduce its previous successes.
Not today. Rapid, constant, and disruptive change is now the norm, and what succeeded in the past is no longer a guide to what will succeed in the future. Twenty-first-century managers simply don’t (and can’t!) have all the right answers.
To cope with this new reality, companies are moving away from traditional command-and-control practices and toward something very different: a model in which managers give support and guidance rather than instructions, and employees learn how to adapt to constantly changing environments in ways that unleash fresh energy, innovation, and commitment. This is dramatic and fundamental. The role of the manager, in short, is becoming that of a coach“.
