A simple system of coaching and mentoring in an SME business can have a huge impact upon employee morale, productivity, retention and growth. Whether you want to focus on other things in your business, scale or simply spend less time at work, then coaching and mentoring the next generation of leaders needs to be in your future plans.

In this 4-hour Workshop, the fifth* of a six-part “Leadership for Growth” series, we take you through the key steps you can implement to help build your next generation of leaders and managers.

During this workshop we cover:

  • Understanding the differences between coaching and mentoring
  • Selecting the employees you want to develop
  • Creating a plan of action for your employees
  • Measuring the impact of coaching and mentoring
  • The importance of language and management styles
  • Where to go for further training

*This ‘stand-alone’ workshop is also the fifth of a series of six half-day workshops that will help you to transform the leadership performance of your business.
