Cafe Coaching Conversations™

Develop your coaching skills to engage your team and influence your colleagues – to deliver business results 



  • A series of four half-day workshops near Reading
  • Ideal for busy leaders, managers – and coaches
  • Led by senior level, experienced and accredited coaches
  • Enjoyable and practical – skills and tools to take straight back to work

Coaching has become the ‘must have’ skill for leaders and managers who want to engage and influence their teams and colleagues. 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. 

Coaching is not just about sitting down with someone in a formal meeting for an hour or more.  Just as important are the informal, opportunistic coaching conversations that might be 10 or 20 minutes over a coffee break where you can coach a real business issue and move it forwards.  This series of short, practical workshops will help you to maximise those moments to have effective and influential conversations, making the most of your time, and that of your colleagues.

Benefits for you and your organisation

This programme of workshops will build your coaching skills to:

  • engage and motivate your team
  • influence colleagues and stakeholders
  • empower and develop your team to take responsibility and ownership
  • handle challenging conversations with confidence, and
  • deliver your business results.  

Do you ever find yourself:

  • Solving people’s problems under pressure?
  • Trying to support a number of people without taking on their issues yourself?
  • Wanting to develop responsibility and ownership in your people without telling them what to do all the time and checking that they do it?

If you relate to any of the above join the Café 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 session confident to use the techniques immediately with your people as well as feeling good about your own challenges.
