Workshop Facilitation

 

Our qualified facilitators and trainers have many years of experience in leading teams, delivering leadership development programs and related workshops. We recognise the importance of increasing knowledge, competence and capability.

Leadership and business development through tailored workshops and ongoing support is a CoachStation focus.

Why engage CoachStation for workshop facilitation?

Attendance in workshops can be a crucial step to learning and growth. However, few people have the ability to translate the information and new learning into long-term, transformational change or development. Over time and experience gained through developing people and leading teams, we have identified that development, genuine change and improvement do not originate from training alone.

Client feedback provided from 2-day Strengths-Based Leadership Workshop with Pharmaceutical company, Mundipharma:

  • It was facilitated extremely well and it was a fantastic opportunity to gain insights into myself and colleagues.
  • Great eye-opener into where we should be spending our time and effort.
  • Steve – experienced facilitator who adapted to our group needs brilliantly.
  • Really resonated with personal and professional values.
  • I would like 1:1 coaching with Steve – Steve is a great facilitator.
  • Well-paced. Great balance of delivery of information, open-floor discussions and references to other concepts. Liked the ‘flow’ – ending on the actions.

Steve Riddle & CoachStation: Strength Development Workshop 1115CoachStation takes development of people one step further by ensuring that the learning is meaningful, sustained and targeted to each individual. Reinforced learning is key – understanding how the training or development opportunity fits into the bigger picture, individual’s development, business and goals are all assessed and built into each program.

 

How will CoachStation assist?

Training, in conjunction with coaching, ongoing support and an attitude of openness towards development, is four times more likely to lead to sustained change in behaviour. Understanding something or gaining new knowledge is not enough – reinforcement of this learning, specific to each client / participant is the difference that ensures the learning becomes transformational and long-term.

Steve’s formal qualifications include Training and Assessment, a Certificate in Coaching, including a focus on modern coaching methods and a Business Marketing Degree. This knowledge is applied to ensure a tailored program is developed to meet the specific needs of you, your team and organisation. Additionally, Steve holds a Blue Card providing permission to operate a business working with children and young people.

The ability to relate, develop trust and reinforce learning is a core leadership skill. CoachStation can assist in developing this skill and many others in you and your teams. We take training beyond simply a learning exercise and make it a meaningful, long-term change.
