Coaching has become the ‘must-have’ skill for managers and leaders who need to motivate and influence a range of employees and other stakeholders.  Yet the soft-skills involved are subtle, especially in complex and fast-moving environments where everybody is stretching themselves to squeeze in more activities and projects.

If you relate to any of the above then join the Cafe Coaching Conversations™ Programme, in each action orientated and enjoyable session, you will focus on a typical business challenge, build your coaching skills, experience coaching others and being coached. You will leave the sessions confident to use the techniques immediately with your people as well as feeling good about your own challenges.

We are running Cafe Coaching Conversations™ near Reading, Berks to ofer managers and leaders cost-effective access to core coaching skills and easy to use techniques. Our aim is to help business meet thrir challenges and grow their people in an innovative and effective way.

What people are saying about the Café Coaching Conversations programme:

I liked the chance to talk with new people and get different perceptions within a structured conversation.

Well designed and well organised. Brilliant.
I realised just how much you can achieve in a short time frame.

It was powerful to learn how to look at issues differently through the use of imagery.
