To get the very best out of your people it’s not enough to have good managers. You need your managers to be good coaches too.

When you managers don’t have the necessary coaching skills then people in their team…

A

Don’t achieve their full potential

Struggle to stay engaged and motivated

A

Are more likely to leave to seek personal development opportunities

A

Don’t feel understood or valued

But transitioning from people manager to empowering coach is not always easy. Managers already have a lot on their plate. That’s why we’re making it easier for them.

At Synaptic Potential we know management and we know coaching. So we’ve put these two together to create a great feedback-based manager coaching skills programme  – our Coach-Savvy Manager Programme. It’s specifically for organizations who want to level up their managers to unlock the brain potential of their teams through the power of coaching.

“It was a privilege to hear you talk about neuroscience in a way that is accessible and relevant for an HR audience”

“Thanks so much for your session, the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. Once again, it was a privilege to hear you talk about neuroscience in a way that is accessible and relevant for an HR audience.

How this Manager Coaching Skills programme is different

To develop manager coaching skills you can’t simply read a book or go on a course that teaches you the pillars of coaching. We know from experience that it just doesn’t lead to meaningful or sustained improvement.

We believe that in order for your managers to become confident and capable coaches, you need expert targeted feedback that is laser sharp in focus and aligns with principles of how the brain works. This is why we’ve built our Coach Savvy Manager Programme on the scientific foundations of how people learn best and give managers the opportunity to actively practice their manager coaching skills and receive meaningful, in the moment, feedback in order to grow their coaching potential. In doing so we…
