A new approach that works
Coaching for Great Work is a simple, practical approach for the time-stretched manager. It solves the challenge of why coaching in organizations isn’t working as well as it should. This comprehensive coaching program gives managers, executives and leaders the skills and capacity to provide focused, results-based coaching in 10 minutes or less. It builds focus, expands possibilities and creates accountability, all to help drive engagement and increase employee impact.
It’s rooted in real-world managerial challenges and tied to strategic objectives, so it has context and relevance. The coaching skills program hones in on simple everyday processes. Your leaders will discover three key coaching moments that are doable by all managers, not just those who are more people-oriented. And our coaching skills program understands that all managers are too busy, and shows how they can coach in 10 minutes or less.
At the end of the program, managers, executives and leaders are able to use coaching skills to:
- Focus themselves and their team on the stuff that really matters.
- Get (and keep) people excited, motivated and engaged.
- Have the difficult conversations.
- Create bigger thinking and fresh ideas.
- Manage the overwhelm.
- Develop a more self-sufficient team.
Coaching skills that stick
You know that “flash flood” of training rarely creates behaviour change. As well as the coaching program materials (specifically designed to avoid the fate of “filed & forgotten”), managers get comprehensive 120-day post-program support to provide “drip irrigation” after the workshop. It includes:
- A 17-week e-course,
- access to a comprehensive “Booster Shot”™ learning portal,
- and the GRAFT Accountability System to ensure the coaching skills stick.
Give your time-strapped managers and leaders
a practical next-day ready coaching tool!

The feedback from our team was that Coaching for Great Work was one of the best workshops they’ve participated in. One of the big takeaways was how to ask more questions to narrow down the real issues, challenges and priorities. They learned to listen more, instead of immediately jumping in with advice. It was a fantastic learning opportunity with lots of practical information. The Coaching for Great Work program was a homerun!
The feedback I received from the team was that this wasn’t your typical training session. They didn’t receive a large binder of course material or be subject to Death by PowerPoint. It was simple, easy to understand, easy to use concepts and a lot of interaction during the course itself. Our Sales Management Team is made up of individuals with varying backgrounds and tenure.There wasn’t a single participant that came back and said that the training wasn’t relevant or that they didn’t see where they could use it on a daily basis working with their own team. This will become part of the way we manage the business going forward."
We were launching a major national, strategic initiative around a new culture at The Bay. The C4GW program was brought in to give our key managers across the country the coaching skills needed to sustain the cultural and behavioural change we needed. While the content was delivered in a fun and highly interactive way, it was the simplicity and immediate applicability of the material that was very refreshing. Our team is eager and engaged. I'm delighted with the impact the program has had on our people and what they're doing as a result (and frankly, I'm not easily delighted). Definitely recommended!"
GSK has been using coaching as a managerial tool for some time already, but Michael introduced it as a concept that is easy to understand, easy to use and achieved a great result in terms of motivation. I believe everybody sometimes struggles with the idea that coaching is a time consuming thing. We had the opportunity to experience, that a couple of minutes will do – if one learns how to use them efficiently. Understanding the difference between good work and great work, practical steps to learn how to change the proportion of each in our daily lives – those were excellent outcomes for all of us. The most frequent feedback I heard after the workshop was ‘the best workshop I have ever participated in’. Thank you!"
