This course has been designed to be delivered as a blended learning experience across two short webinar sessions enabling participants to be confident, competent and effective coaches in their role as leader, manager or supervisor in the Energy Industry.

It is widely recognised that in order to be a successful leader of people, it is critical to have effective coaching skills. Not many have had any formal training on this important skill. 

The remote working environment the energy industry has recently experienced has highlighted the need for leaders of people to be even more effective coaches as we go through this period of massive change. It has also highlighted the need for leaders to widen the scope of their coaching conversations from simple problem solving and goal clarity issues to wellbeing, resilience and confidence. Effective coaching can have a profound effect on motivation and performance, especially as we all navigate through many difficult situations.
