The Programme Structure
This content-based coaching engagement will be conducted in small groups of four to six delegates. The series will be delivered through the natural cycles of work, such as meetings or events within the organisation instead of seminar-styled sessions. This minimises cost and avoids taking delegates away from their work.
The essence of this programme is on the application of the concepts. Throughout the programme, the coach will encourage delegates to apply what they learn into work to create positive change.
