Learning Outcomes

The ultimate goal of coaching or mentoring programs is to change the culture of the organisation so that learning is ever present. In a “learning organisation”, people do not just perform tasks – they are always developing their capacity and knowledge so that next time they will do that task better. Our Coaching and Mentoring short course, facilitated by experienced industry practitioners based in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, and Canberra, will supply you and your business with all the tools and knowledge necessary to implement a successful coaching or mentoring program in your organisation.

Upon completion of this course you’ll be able to:

  • Understand the nature and benefits of coaching and mentoring in the workplace
  • Promote a coaching and mentoring culture in your organisation
  • Apply proven coaching and mentoring approaches to support ongoing employee development
  • Incorporate emotional intelligence and interpersonal skills into the coaching or mentoring relationship
  • Enhance coaching interactions to support improved performance
