Coaching Skills Masterclass | 7.10.21 & 8.10.21 | Hotel du Vin Brighton

  • How to engage in and successfully lead difficult conversations
  • When and how to manage and coach simultaneously
  • A method to coach senior team members to empower staff to be more independent and take greater responsibility for their work while feeling more engaged
  • Specific personal interaction skills to add to your existing management capabilities
