In this session, attendees will understand why coaching matters, what are the core techniques and how to get better at coaching. We discuss how to create a foundation for coaching to be effective, how relationships can improve coaching and a method for helping others progress through coaching.This lunchtime session will be led by Oliver Deacon, an FCA who qualified at Deloitte and, until recently, was a finance director at Microsoft. Oliver has been managing teams for over 15 years, with consistently strong employee feedback scores, and has now become a full time coach.
