Coaching Basics for Managers

Develop your managing capacities
Nairobi, Kenya

23 Apr

More >

This training is specifically designed for leaders and managers to learn about how coaching skills can be used in a management position. No prior knowledge of coaching is required—everything you need for this introduction will be provided.

We will be using a coaching model throughout the seminar so that you will see coaching modeled for you even as you practice using the skills immediately. We recommend this complimentary seminar for managers who are responsible for two or more people and who wish to develop their managing capacities by adding coaching skills to their management toolbag.

You will also delve into one surprisingly simple cluster of coaching skills—acknowledgement, feedback and celebration that will allow you to transform your relationships with staff and get the results you desire.

By the end of the course you will be able to:

  • Understand and use a basic coaching process
  • Describe the differences and similarities between coaching and managing
  • Experience coaching and being coached in a safe setting
  • Decide for yourself how you best want to use your new favorite coaching skill
  • Delve deep into the do’s and don’ts of acknowledgement, feedback, and celebration to learn how and when to use these skills to get the most from yourself as a leader and the results you want from your staff
  • Learn about common situations in which coaching can help, and how we respond at InterHealth

Team Dynamics & dealing with Conflict

Two Day Training
Kampala, Uganda

09 Jun - 10 Jun

More >

Arguments, resentment, gossip – get to grips with what’s really going on

For managers working in relief, development and mission sectors, dealing with everyday relationships can often be every bit as demanding as the  job  itself. Left unaddressed, the often competing demands of headquarters, colleagues and team members can lead to misunderstandings and challenges in team relations.

Our thought-provoking and interactive workshop will take an in-depth look at the group dynamics which can unfold in these settings. It will also teach you how to use conflict creatively to strengthen your teams instead of letting it pull them apart.

We will be drawing on field scenarios, organisational research and cutting-edge mediation theory to equip you with the insight to recognise what is going on in your teams and the facilitation skills to deal with problems early and effectively.

By the end of the course you will be able to:

  • Identify  how intense emotions  can arise at work with an emphasis on relief, development and mission settings
  • Understand the impact that these emotions can have on team dynamics and how it can lead to conflict
  • Assess the impact of past life experiences on current working relationships
  • Apply effective listening skills to support constructive team relations
  • Use mediation techniques to identify and address the real issues which  underlie team conflict
  • Hold difficult conversations and offer constructive feedback

Who is it for?

We have designed this workshop for country directors, line managers, supervisors and team leaders. We also welcome anyone interested in attending.
