Information about The manager as coach and consultant
The classic idea of the boss who merely gives instructions "from above" is disappearing more and more. Instead, a change is taking place in successful companies: The manager is becoming a coach and consultant. The goal is to involve employees in the planning and processes of the company, to strengthen and motivate them.
What does this mean for you?
As a supervisor who acts as an advisor and asks questions, you will improve your leadership skills and competencies. That's because by being more communicative and trusting of your team, you'll support each individual's sense of responsibility. This also has advantages for you as a team leader: By partially relinquishing responsibility for the core topics of decision-making, searching for ideas, and control, more freedom is created for yourself. The time gained can be used for other tasks.
Of course, not every leader has the necessary prerequisites to motivate and inspire employees. These are qualities such as strong communication skills, the ability to work in a team and special competencies such as soft skills.
However, appropriate skills for successful coaching can still be learned and developed in higher positions. Our seminars take place in small groups with a maximum of nine people - the leadership training is therefore very individually oriented. Spread over two days and with a strong practical focus, it offers the opportunity to fully engage with the topic of business coaching.
In the seminar for executives, the basic questions are first discussed:
- Why is the role of the coach becoming increasingly important in the modern company?
- What makes a good advisor, what personal qualities need to be highlighted and developed?
- What role does emotional intelligence play, i.e. the recognition of strengths and weaknesses?
- In addition, methods and strategies are taught to increase the performance of the team by means of coaching. The following aspects play a role:
- How are employees effectively involved in decision-making?
- To what extent does it help as a boss to always have an "open ear" and to show recognition and appreciation to the individual?
- How can you create an atmosphere of trust in which even controversial opinions can be expressed?
- In what ways can you as a consultant intervene in conflicts and employee problems?
- Why is it important to develop a "psychological" intuition and to know what makes each team member tick?
- How can employees be encouraged to perform at their best?
Coaching is an interactive support process that can be integrated into any business model. In the seminar "The executive as coach and consultant", you will learn step by step how to settle into the role as a consulting leader and achieve the best possible cooperation with the team.
During the training you will have the opportunity to review your own leadership behavior and optimize it according to the requirements. You will learn to assess the impact of your behavior and to reflect on it critically.
In addition to in-depth training, the course is also a platform to exchange ideas with our trainer as well as other participants. They reflect on their own expectations and are provided with numerous coaching tools to optimally manage future tasks.
