Coach the Coach

Management styles are changing. Research suggests that employees are more engaged when managers adopt a coaching/mentoring style rather than a management approach. Individuals employed internally as ‘coaches’ have a core set of coaching, mentoring and training skills which they understand when and how to use appropriately.

With this in mind, MadeYou has created the Coach the Coach program.

Why Attend?

This program will help you develop the skills required to be an internal coach. You will learn the difference between directive and non-directive coaching, when to use which, and when to descend into a mentoring approach. With actual real coaching sessions led by you, we will guide you on how to optimise your coaching style, with what is working and what needs more work.


This is a great program for someone wanting to develop their coaching skills and see the value of coaching others.

What Does the Program Entail?

We start with the Gallup StrengthsFinder assessment to help us gauge your strengths, development areas, and potential. It also helps to recognise what you need to be aware of when adopting a coaching approach. The test is done by you and profiled by our very own Gallup certified coaches. We will then have a 1-on-1 meeting to talk through the results.

Supported by a training course, we help you understand the difference between training, mentoring, directive and non-directive coaching, whilst also appreciating why and when to coach.

With 1-on-1 coaching, we build a focus plan for your coaching approach. You will then have a practice session with your coach, turning the tables as you coach us. MadeYou will provide you with full feedback on your coaching approach with any further actions required to develop your style even more.

Following this, you will then have your first practice coaching session with your MadeYou coach. Here the tables will be turned and you will coach them, using prompt questions and the coaching techniques you’ve learnt so far.

Your coach will then suggest further questioning techniques and approaches to prepare you for your next practice session with your own nominated coachee. Once completed, we will quickly check in with the coachee to gather their feedback and use this to fine-tune your approach and set you up to be amazingly impactful.

Your third and final practice session will be with your MadeYou coach again, followed by one last 1-on-1 coaching session to set you forward on your journey ahead.
