Coaching & mentoring, "Sources for improving productivity!"

Training departments have traditionally been established to manage and deliver training programs toward a productive workforce. With learnerships, outcomes-based training courses and organizational learning initiatives, the need for competent people to facilitate, coach, mentor, and give guidance and support have become a critical success factor for most South African organizations.

The efficiencies of quality systems coupled with the proficiencies of learning organizations remain the challenge and pursuits for many experienced trainers and effective managers across the country as our Skills Revolution continues to unfold. And to survive in this ever changing and competing economy, an inclusive skilled and productive workforce has never before been so high a worthy agenda.

All the more reason why managers and supervisors should be competent and skilled at helping others to learn; to help their staff to excel, build healthy working relationships and share their skills and knowledge with peers.

A facilitation, coaching and mentoring course for managers and supervisors may well be worth considering if you are implementing learnerships or skills programs and plan to take your organization to higher levels of performance. Motivating, guiding and supporting staff to learn, apply and excel is a skill worth boosting any organisation with.


Development of Employees = Growth for the organisation

Assessing expectations in your organisation can be a good practice in order to determine the organisational needs and development of employees. But all this comes with being prepared for change, flexibility and receiving constructive feedback.

You will need:

  • Disciplined staff to deliver consistently,

  • To focus on skills gaps and develop competence,

  • To clarify peformance goals and improvement plans,

  • To know how to facilitate reflective thinking in order to coach and mentor for success, &

  • To employ people who are willing and able to share their knowledge & experience to improve team productivity.

IPD has crafted a 5-day Facilitation, Coaching & Mentoring course that equips trainers, supervisors and managers to effectively:

  • Facilitate, coach, mentor, guide and support learners effectively.

  • Design learning activities for your learners.
