Become a workplace coach

Leadership skills in any occupation drive change. But in the nursing profession, leadership skills are vital to patient care and advocacy, regardless of your title or position. Are you ready to step up and stand out, taking your leadership skills to the next level?

Become a workplace coach

Coaching skills are vital to every professional. Whether you are a nurse manager, a registered nurse working in Aged Care and leading aged care workers, or a nurse providing care to and advocating for your patients. Coaching skills are essential!

In this course we look into ways coaching skills can be applied in your workplace, and what the benefits are of using workplace coaching in day to day practice. We focus on you as a workplace coach, as you are your own most powerful coaching tool. During the day we look at various coaching models and explore ways to build a coaching culture in your team. It will be an active day in which you will practice your coaching skills and be challenged to try out new techniques, ultimately expanding your coaching toolbox.
