The Manager as Coach

To transform a group of people into a genuine team, the coach or manager must contend with various dynamic and overlapping phases as they establish, develop, and optimise their team’s performance. The team development cycle includes recruitment, induction, development, retention, transition and separation. This course looks at the various stages of the cycle, and how the process can be managed to achieve an optimal outcome for all involved, and for the organisation as a whole.

An Introduction to Well-Being and Positive Psychology

Well-being programs introduce you to the ways in which positive psychology can help you and your colleagues achieve your optimal performance in business, sport and personal well-being. Programs encompass considerations for diet, exercise, sleep, and mental health. For a more detailed overview of the well-being concept, please visit our FAQs page.

Performance Management

This course addresses the broad and challenging demands made on managers, and outlines the ways in which positive psychology can assist in meeting those demands. Topics covered include the diverse and competing range of manager responsibilities, such as: keeping the organisation financially viable and competitive; operating within a local (individual or immediate team), regional (departmental), and possibly, global (organisational) context; maintaining skill, motivation, and common purpose amongst staff; and staff management through the hiring cycle. The course steps through each of these areas, and proposes ways to employ techniques of positive psychology on a functional basis to improve the process and outcomes.

Performance Psychology for Coaches

In addition to managing the team development cycle, coaching and team performance can be significantly improved by learning and practising a range of coaching mental skills. These include self-evaluation, management skills, team building, communication skills, leadership, humility, values and philosophies, and integrity and role modelling. This course explains each of these vital areas, and methods by which a coach can proactively improve their coaching performance - and ultimately the performance of their athletes - in developing these techniques.
