Course description

Coach for Results

Traditionally, the construction industry has been focused on the technical side of things. However, young construction professionals have told us that the people side of the industry is something they feel needs focusing on in order to maintain a positive environment where individuals can achieve excellence. They want to be supported and coached, they want to be listened to, and they want to build strong relationships and networks – all without losing sight of what’s needed to get the job built in a high-pressure environment.

Designed with young professionals in mind and drawing on the trainers 45 years’ experience in the construction industry, Coach for Results challenges the “command-and-control” management style. This management style demotivates people, increases stress and suppresses initiative, engagement and innovation.

Our course equips you with coaching skills to raise colleagues’ awareness of the barriers they face, which empowers them to take responsibility for moving forward in order to own and better fulfil their accountabilities. This will lead to more proactive and strategic responses to emerging issues such as subcontractor performance, the risk of disputes and friction in the wider delivery team.

Suitability - Who should attend?

Coach for Results is designed for:

  • Younger construction professionals who are or aim to be managers of teams, projects, or processes in the industry.
  • Experienced managers looking to refresh and expand their leadership style.
  • Anyone who deals with people and wants to deliver better results.
