Managers as Coaches: Getting the Best out of the People you Lead

What’s the difference between a coaching conversation and a managing conversation? We ask this question of leaders on our coaching courses so they can check which ‘hat’ they have on during their regular catch ups with staff. Is it a coaching catch up or a management catch up? Or a bit of both?

There is an inherent conflict of interest for managers coaching their direct reports: We want our staff to talk openly about how things are going for them in their role so we can help them succeed (coaching conversation) but we have results to deliver and want to know where people are up to (managing conversation). Does the staff person set the agenda (coaching conversation) or does the manager set the agenda (managing conversation)? Can they make their own choices over courses of action or are we telling them which way to go?

It is vital that you know which role you are playing– the concept of ‘changing hats’ is a useful metaphor to bring to the table when you are taking a coaching approach to leadership or management.

Managing and Leading Community Organisations

Join these three days of sector-specific training and optional coaching and mentoring in Auckland (31st July to 2nd August 2019) and Christchurch (11th to 13th November 2019).

Leading in a community organisation can be complex! This Development Programme grows your skills, knowledge and confidence to manage the people, money, projects, and stakeholders, whilst still driving results. So, no more second-guessing yourself!

You'll have two plans by the end of 3 days of highly interactive leaning - one for your own leadership development, and one for building the capacity of your organisation.

This programme sold out in Wellington, so don't miss out in Auckland and Christchurch!

Choose your level of learning: $750 plus GST for the three-day workshop only or $1750 plus GST for the 3 day workshop as well as 6 months of coaching and mentoring.

Get more information on the Managing and Leading Community Organisations workshop, including how to register.

“An immediate outcome for me has been that my interaction with staff is more purposeful and focused on them and their needs...making more of an effort to understand where they are coming from, which has produced positive results.  I am more conscious of the need to prioritise my work to ensure I have more time to support and develop our team members... which is quite a challenge but necessary to be an effective leader. ” - Participant from the Wellington learning cohort 2018.

The Governance Winter Warmer: Ka Pai!

The LEAD team was cosy, in the community, and co-learning on a blustery Saturday in June in West Auckland with MPHS Community Trust. A big shout out to Kathryn, Daena, JP and the highly professional team for pulling together the logistics for the wonderful day!

As sector trainers and leaders we were able to cover a wide variety of Governance topics of interest for local community organisations and boards in interactive workshops, and also feed in some of the latest research and ideas for good practice for plenary presentations. And (very importantly) we all got to drink mulled wine!
