Strengths-based Coaching for Line Managers:  Taking your Coaching Capability to the Next Level 

Coaching is the ultimate in personalised learning and development, with a wealth of evidence to demonstrate its performance benefits in business and educational settings. In recent years, one of the biggest breakthroughs in leadership thinking has been in the area of strengths-based approaches to performance development.  The scientific evidence shows that in our increasingly complex and demanding workplaces, fixing what’s wrong isn’t sufficient to drive change. Growing what’s strong enhances performance by increasing staff trust, resourcefulness and resilience to deal with stress. 

This strengths-based coaching course, limited to a maximum of 15 delegates, provides an intensive training opportunity to take your coaching skills and the performance of your school to the next level. The one-day workshop is framed around the SPARK  coaching framework: 

S  - Strengths

P  - Potential

A  - Appreciation

R  - Reaching out

K  - Kick-starting 

Learning Outcomes:

Increased confidence in your coaching skills

  • Insight into the strengths-based approach
  • Understanding how strengths-based coaching enhances performance
  • Experience of the SPARK framework
  • A practical toolkit for immediate impact
  • Better relationships with your colleagues
  • Greater freedom in how you lead
  • Potential to transform the culture of your school 

This course is run by Katie Banham, a chartered psychologist and coach who runs her own business ‘Learning to Flourish’. 

With a maximum of 15 delegates, all delegates will be expected to participate fully in active coaching sessions.  Participants should come along with a willingness to coach and to be coached around real life issues.  

Please register as soon as possible.

'Excellent course - Katie is an inspiration.  So passionate and enthusiastic. I loved the interactive nature of the GROW exercise - very practical and hands-on.  I hope to employ these new coaching skills back at school to benefit colleagues and students.'
