Manager Coaching

Supporting people managers at all levels to lead with
confidence and care.

Trusted by

The needs and expectations of employees have changed. People are craving high-trust environments and investment in the human aspect of their lives and their work. Managers are now required to lead with a much deeper level of care that goes beyond just productivity and problem-solving. 


The challenge? Most managers don’t have the confidence, skills or support to keep up with these increasing demands against the backdrop of a relentless change and challenge in the workplace. 


That’s where Connected Leadership comes in; a personalised, 1-2-1, multi-session coaching track designed to cultivate competencies that support people managers at all levels to lead with confidence and care and to create high trust-environments. Environments where belonging, communication, community and wellbeing are prioritised just as highly as productivity and performance.

A tailored, 1-2-1 coaching track for managers

Connected Leadership is a highly personalised track tailored to each individual manager; giving them the space to develop core capabilities beyond the confines of conventional hard and soft skill training typically included in traditional manager training programmes. 


Managers at all levels will be equipped with the tools, skills and mindset needed to enable them to thrive in uncertain environments, to create mutually supportive teams and to lead from a place of authenticity.


Fosters high-trust environments

By focusing on the competencies needed to build high-trust, human-first workplaces, Connected Leadership helps to build a sustainable, thriving work-culture with wellbeing at the heart. 


It helps managers to act as change makers where they can build a culture of belonging, support, and psychological safety, cultures which have been shown to have: 74% less stress, 50% higher productivity and 76% higher engagement.

Impact, personal accountability and responsibility

Empower managers and people leaders to tune into, benchmark and track their own personal growth. You can identify strengths to harness, as well as areas for further development – both at an individual and cohort level. 


Connected Leadership will also develop and distribute skills and awareness to spot and address signs of struggle in self and others – removing the onus from HR/People teams.
