For a number of years, Frank Dick has been working with teams in business sharing his unique insight to coaching from his wealth of experience of coaching elite sports personalities.
His coaching programmes delivered for companies such as BT, Barclays, Virgin Atlantic, Britvic, Roche, WNS, AMEX, Computer Associates, PWC and Abbey National have helped to create a coaching climate within these organisations. The coaching workshops enable managers and team members to learn practical skills which they can adopt to improve performance and develop potential. Some have even gone on to create their own coaching academies.
For his work at Abbey National, Frank jointly received a major training award from the prestigious American Society of Training and Development.
Frank’s coaching workshops inspire and motivate people to be responsible for their own performance, their own development and the development of others. Whatever stage of our career or development, there is always a lot more to learn and the first step is acknowledging that we all need to be “coachable”.
We are also all coaches, wherever we sit within an organisation. Managers and leaders of course have a special responsibility for the development of team members and Frank covers the styles and systems appropriate for different stages of development. Using video footage from sport, Frank highlights both the behaviours and hard skills required to create a coaching culture.
"You don’t have to be sick to get better. Even the best can be better."
