Event description


In partnership with Yorkshire Dance we are delighted to announce our first in a series of open courses in Leeds for 2016/17.

Who is the course for?

Do you wish to develop your leadership style using coaching techniques and approaches? Would you like to improve your ability to motivate and support others to improve their performance?

A coaching style of leadership is about learning not to lead in the traditional sense but more to facilitate others to come up with their own solutions. The leader holds more questions than answers and aims to develop the problem-solving muscle of teams, rather than being the one who solves the problems, thereby building greater capacity and engagement in those they work with.

What does it cover?

Topics explored in the training include:

  • Foundation coaching skills: philosophy and application
  • Active Listening and Effective Enquiry
  • Group coaching (using a simplified Action Learning model)
  • Coaching cultures and a coaching style of leadership

By the end of the day all participants will have:

  • Experienced coaching and being coached
  • Developed active listening and effective questioning skills  
  • Explored the GROW model of coaching
  • Used their coaching skills in a group context through Action Learning

The course is accompanied by a manual.

“RD1st recently helped Yorkshire Dance introduce coaching skills across our team. It has been an extremely positive and supportive process for us all and we are pleased to host an opportunity for others to discover this powerful tool to support individual and business development.”

Andrea Smart, Administrative Director, Yorkshire Dance

What do previous participants say about the course?

‘Best and most profound course I have ever been on.’ Tom Hammond, Leeds College of Art.

‘It’s a chance to take time out of the hectic day-to-day and really think about how you can enable others and yourself to be the best you can be. Really valuable in all areas of life.’ Holly Conneely, Royal Court Theatre

‘It’s a great introduction to coaching which can be enjoyed by anyone from any field or industry.’ Rose Dalling, freelance fundraiser

‘A valuable and highly motivating introduction to thinking in a different way about dialogue with others, whether in the workplace or in personal life, friendships and relationships. Highly recommended.’ Helen Meaney, arts journalist and consultant


EARLY BIRDS! Catch the worm! 20% discount ends on 6th April 2017.  

We want all our courses to be as widely available as possible. Therefore, a limited number of assisted places are available to those out of work or on low incomes. Please contact us for further information.




I have done an RD1st half or full day course before - what would this course offer me?

This course uses the same material as the one-day course we run on several leadership porgrammes, including Clore Leadership Programme, Clore Short Course and engage Extend programme. For those who have previously only done the half-day version, this course introduces Action Learning and the day includes several oportunities to apply and practice skills. The course is enjoyed by many people wanting to refresh, deepen and explore these skills and approaches further - even if they have experienced similar training in the past.

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
