Step 1 – Leading individuals
Are you tired of working too much, of carrying all the responsibility on your shoulders? Tired of employees who seem to be dependent on your drive and energy and your knowledge? Are you interested in more self-managing employees and teams?
It all starts with you training new ways of leading. This education is for you who really want to develop as a manager and leader, irrespective of whether you are new in your leader role or more senior and experienced.
Brilliant training for anyone who wants to be a better manager and /or want to empower their team to self-manage. Helps you understand your personal strengths and recognize your pitfalls, giving you clear guidelines on how to have empowering conversations. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to improve their communications skills.
What results can I expect from the training?
You will notice a big difference in the quality of your conversations with your employees and you will also notice that your team meetings become more efficient and creative. Your employees will take on new levels of responsibility and be much more motivated and engaged. This will then, among other things, lead to you having more time to work proactively and to have a long-term perspective.
What does the course entail?
The course consists of four days’ intensive training. It starts with two consecutive day-long sessions in which you will learn the basics of a coaching leadership style and attitude. After a month or so, during which you’ll be able to put your new skills into practice, you’ll build on them with two more days full of more advanced techniques and training. There will also be a half-hour coaching meeting with a Tuff trainer one month after course completion.

Practical, relevant training – a common thread
An important part of your development as a leader is to identify and be aware of pitfalls and strengths. To this end, the course contains a great deal more practical skills than theoretical models. You will practise in true-to-life role-play situations, receive abundant feedback and find new, more effective ways of dealing with the challenges and problems you wrestle with. Many concepts will be turned on their head, and you’ll find yourself with a whole new set of tools that you can put straight to use.
Our training programme will help you discover:
- how to make your employees take greater responsibility and be more proprietary towards your business, and
- how you don’t have to be the one who solves all problems, checks that things get done or goes on about “getting the report in on time”
- how to motivate and strengthen your employees, especially during troubled times when they’re feeling anxious about the company
- how to talk to a dysfunctional employee
- how can I give someone some bad news without appearing too harsh and “managerish” while remaining frank and to the point
- how to improve what you perceive to be a poor relationship with one of your employees
- how to give effective feedback that gives lasting results without it draining your energy.
Why take the course?
To develop your ability to make others grow and tap their own potential and capacity – and because you’re fed up with constantly telling people what to do.
I’ve found new tools and discovered new strengths and weaknesses in myself. I feel that I don’t have to solve every problem myself.
For real rather than in theory. Doing, not just talking about doing.

What will I experience?
Training, training and yet more training. And a lot of laughs.
A course that blends theory with practice and that gives you a chance to try out what you’ve learnt and get immediate feedback on it. Getting to practice all the time is extremely enriching.
A coaching course that really is what it says. A lot of training. I appreciated the month-long interval for training back at work. It’s a real ‘doer’ course of immediate practical use.
