Coaching in the Workplace
Work It Out! Programme - Implement Coaching In the Workplace
One of the biggest challenges for business managers is low productivity and motivation of staff, so how do you get employees motivated and focused on taking action to achieve more? We believe the answer lies in coaching. We assist managers to implement a coaching programme to change the way their company and team works. Coaching focuses on harnessing the personal ambitions and motivations of team members and encourages personal accountability and responsibility to help the whole company take new strides to success.
Work It Out equips individuals with the skills to implement a coaching programme in their workplace. The programme provides training in:-
- Designing the alliance
- Coaching tools for the workplace
- Evaluation tools and techniques
Our training can be non-accredited or accredited with an ILM Qualification Coaching in the Workplace.
Our typical clients include seniors and managers in the workplace or aspiring coaches who wish to learn how to coach others in the workplace. We deliver our training programmes in-house and directly for external clients including educational establishments and employers.
Between December 2010 and November 2009 we delivered our coaching skills training programme for City University and Catch 22. We have designed and delivered 4 x 10-week courses for City University for beginners and advanced learners, and we also delivered two in-house training workshops for Catch 22. In total we trained 78 individuals this year.
As a result of our support, our clients feel they have:-
- A better understanding of coaching and it’s contribution
- Learnt a range of coaching tools and techniques to use in practice
- Understand where and how to use coaching effectively
- Benefited personally from the training and coaching
- Been able to empower their colleagues through the use of coaching

“The course was great and the trainer was absolutely brilliant. 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 the Coaching Skills course any day!”

“A great deal is packed into the course and it enables you to pick the tools that fit the individuals you are working with rather than having a one set fits all. The course tutor has been amazing at answering all the questions both on theories and questions that arise from experience when I have got stuck. My team has responded well to the new tool box of coaching skills I have. I now find myself coaching them rather than telling them the answers.This has seen their confidence grow and resulted in me finding myself with more time, having had greater success at delegating items as they apply their skills and confidence to other tasks with greater ease.”
