Creative, collaborative, thought-provoking

The Coaching Clinic®

Use Your Edge offers The Coaching Clinic® to individuals, businesses and schools and organisations.

Business coaching offers a new approach to working with people and achieving results in a business environment. It is a series of focused, collaborative conversations, designed to move organisations and individuals forward in their goals.

Why Effective Leadership by Coaching Others?

Organizations are discovering that the traditional "command and control" style of management is no longer effective in today’s environment, which requires rapid response, leveraged creativity, resilience, and individual effort and performance in order to remain competitive. Retention is critical, and coaching supports employee career/professional development and satisfaction, which keeps valued employees.

Employees who are coached to performance rather than managed to performance are more committed to and invested in the outcomes of their work and achievement of organizational goals.

Successful managers and leaders today are developing their coaching skills, in order to support and enhance employee performance and development. Managers with coaching skills also "peer coach" each other, as a key way to provide each other with support and guidance in challenging environments.

What exactly is The Coaching Clinic®?

The Coaching Clinic® is a two-day leadership programme designed to train managers, executives, leaders and supervisors to use coaching techniques in their work relationships, and thus gain the advantage of bringing a coach approach to managing people. It generates rapid development of individuals and teams, and increases leadership potential. It has been brought into organisations worldwide by Corporate Coach U trained and licensed facilitators, and has earned the reputation as a comprehensive training in core coaching skills.

What to expect

Preparation Interviews

We begin by speaking to everyone involved in the programme. We start with those responsible for commissioning the training in order to learn about the big picture of the company’s culture and strategic goals. We then speak to every person who will attend the training to learn about his or her individual background and goals. This enables us to tailor the programme to the unique needs of each context and bring maximum impact.

The Programme

The programme provides participants with an opportunity to ‘jump off the train’ and review their approach to people management, learn new ideas and do some concentrated practical work in order to develop their new skills.
