About the facilitators

The Building a Coaching Culture programme will be facilitated by the 3D Coaching team:

3D Coaching has been delivering coaching skills training since 2003. All our trainers are working coaches and we teach you the least you need to know to be able to coach well. In 2020, the material drawn on to support the delivery of this programme was published by McGraw Hill as ‘Simplifying Coaching’ and is recognised around the world as a core text for coaching at work and coaching professionals.

What previous participants say

“It doesn’t have to be perfect. It doesn’t have to be an all or nothing thing. It’s an incremental approach and [you] can start to introduce the coaching approach into your conversations in lots of different ways. And it doesn’t have to be that that whole conversation is a coaching one, but that you are using elements of what we are learning. It’s part of our toolkit now and making us think differently about how we might have some of our conversations.”

“This course seemed unique in its focus on simplicity and practice, with regular feedback – instead of coming out of it thinking with practice this will be really useful, but then forgetting to practice to embed it. I am already using it and it is becoming second nature to me.”

“Definitely do less. To achieve more. Because it doesn’t make you a worse manager. It actually makes you a better manager”
