Every manager a coaching manager
Coaching means encouraging and motivating team members to achieve their goals, solve their own problems and find their own solutions by asking the right questions.
It’s about getting the best from people and encouraging them to perform at peak potential by developing the necessary skills, confidence and knowledge.
Coaching can be a particular challenge for managers who have been promoted for their technical, professional or academic expertise, rather than their managerial skills, as they tend to focus on solutions, facts and objectives rather than supporting the development of the people in their team.
By the end of this training workshop, managers will:
- Be confident that they can have a conversation with their team members to identify coaching needs and growth areas
- Be able to provide structured coaching for their teams using the GROW model
- Understand that coaching can be quick, simple and informal yet still highly effective
- Encourage team members to take responsibility for their own solutions
- Know when to coach
- Have practised and/or reviewed a practice coaching session
This interactive training session can be as short as a 90 minute skills clinic or as long as a full day workshop – depending on your exact requirements.
Content will be tailored to your needs. Up to 12 delegates.

"Fantastic use of tech. Thank you - this was really thought-provoking, and thanks also to the actors Adam and Pippa for making it very engaging!"

I cannot recommend your Virtual Trainer programme highly enough. Thank you Hedda for facilitating such a fabulous programme and in such a very skilful and concise manner. I am so pleased that I was able to participate and be a part of such an engaging group of people. I can’t wait to share my new found knowledge with my colleagues and have already made some changes to my eLearning and Library support training session – chat, teaching a process, management grid, icebreakers here we come!

“We couldn’t have designed our new approach to Performance Management without 3C. They know their stuff, and work from a strong evidence base. Engaging a large, global organisation is never easy– 3C have shown they understand our challenges and have most importantly helped us re-purpose our performance management to deliver our strategy as well as massively simplify the process for our workforce.”
Bernadette Bruton, Global Talent and OD Director, Aviva plc
Hedda, you were marvellous at directing/guiding us all in the right direction with sublime ease… well, you made it look that easy anyway! I believe all of the team learnt a considerable amount of useful techniques to use going forwards as virtual trainers. You ensured that everyone was included and carried us all along excellently. It was good to see our Advisors blossoming ‘virtually’ as each day went by.
Pete George, Health & Safety Manager, Howdens
I noticed a real difference in the quality of performance conversations I could have with my team after they had been on the ‘It’s My Conversation’ programme. Conversations with those who had been on the programme were more meaningful, more constructive and a much better use of both of our time, compared with those who had not. I did the programme myself and found its approach deeply engaging and a very powerful learning experience.
