Coaching Leadership

You manage a team and want them to take more responsibility. You need them to take the initiative to do what they are good at. You want them to make their own intelligent decisions on the basis of a deep sense of pride instead of just following procedures. The Coaching Leadership course will teach you how build an effective team using a flexible leadership style. ‘You no longer catch the fish, you teach them how to fish’.


The Coaching Leadership program highlights your strengths and weaknesses as a coaching leader and enables you to upgrade your coaching style. You are given the tools to become more competent at coaching, and practice situations taken from your own work situation. You learn to be flexible and adaptable in your leadership style and build trust as a coaching leader. This enables you to optimize your team’s potential and so take individual team members and the team as a whole to a higher level.

This course is given in Dutch but can also be given as a tailormade course in English on request. Please feel free to call +31343556369.
