Did you know that 50% of employees say they leave their companies because of their boss?  Don’t be one of those bosses.  Individual managers need and deserve opportunities to learn and develop as managers.

Do yourself & your staff a favour – join a CoachingOurselves group!

What is a CoachingOurselves Session?

CoachingOurselves is a management and leadership development approach based on a small group of six meeting together to discuss a topic over 90 minutes.  Each session is facilitated via video conference; expect to be actively engaged in discussion.

How small group programs work

We will organise six individuals into a group.  Groups will discuss topics designed to help you think and behave differently as managers and leaders.

What you will gain from the sessions

– Increased knowledge and understanding about the practice of management
– New skills that can be immediately applied in the workplace
– Improved engagement with your staff
– Better performance of the organisation
– Confidence to do things differently.


Option One: Join a group and complete six sessions.

We will bring together a group of six that will meet once a month over a six month period.
