Coaching Skills for Internal Coaches

This two day programme outline has been specifically designed in order to develop delegates in their roles as an internal coach.

Coaching Skills for Internal Coaches

2 Days

Available online


Delegates will learn how to match their coaching approach to the competence and confidence (as well as learning style) of the coachee. They will learn when to instruct, coach, motivate or delegate.

Each delegate will also learn how to develop a clear, understandable communication style that concentrates on questioning techniques and listening skills.

Using Transactional Analysis, they will learn techniques for matching their entire coaching approach to the working style of the learner – for example to give more time and details to ‘Be Perfects’, and to keep ‘Hurry-ups’ focused with quick exercises.

Each delegate will have the opportunity to practice coaching every group member through a variety of different coaching exercises throughout the two days. By learning about themselves they will in turn learn how to adapt to and coach others.

A fun, challenging and supportive learning environment will help each delegate to confidently view themselves as an ‘in-company coach’.

N.B The facilitator will produce a report with full feedback on each delegate, their ability and drive to take on the role and the support they will need to get them moving forward.
