Coaching and leadership are in many ways synonymous. The performance benefits of coaching are widely becoming more accepted and utilised in organisations. Managers trained as coaches add value to their organisations by assisting employees to grow and develop. The objective of this research was to introduce a strength-based programme for training managers as coaches in the workplace. The study resulted in a training programme focussing on developing interpersonal and coaching skills of managers, as well as enabling managers to identify their innate strengths in order to utilise these during a coaching session.
