What Makes this Program Unique?

The Coaching Skills for Managers program was designed by Ilsé Strauss who has over 20+ years of leadership coaching experience. She has conducted over 5,000 hrs coaching, advising and consulting to managers across Private, Public and NFP sectors. Her coaching is based on values-enquiry methodology to establish strategy that is successful in values congruence. Recent pilots of this coaching methodology received reports from managers that they experienced a greater sense of self-identity as leaders, transformation of a values based workplace culture and they also felt they had better relationships with their teams.
