Philip Kerry, Programme Manager, Envision
Phillip attended a Coaching Skills course at City University which was delivered by Quinn, one of our Business and Youth Coaches.
“The course was great and Quinn was absolutely brilliant. I’ve been on many training courses and it was really refreshing to see Quinn in action. She’s a great trainer. The course was so relevant and useful, underpinning what we as an organisation believe about a coaching management style that I’ve recommended that our Chief Executive and colleagues attend the course too. I was really impressed that I learnt new things and new ways of doing things. I thought it was fantastic and I’ve even decided to continue to keep training in coaching and reading more on the discipline. I first approached coaching as a way of being, but what I also picked up were valuable tools that I could use to positively impact the people around me – whether it’s staff or clients. I’ve seen the power that coaching brings to my management style. The other day, I used it during a conversation with a staff member and they went away really pleased about themselves, because they were able to come up with the solution to a problem themselves. Coaching is really empowering. Sometimes, you have to be directorial in approach, but coaching lends itself well to all sorts of situations. I’d recommend Quinn and the Coaching Skills course any day!”
