What is STAR® Coach?
This programme includes 10 online modules, each 20-45 minutes long, plus workplace missions and live fortnightly masterclasses. The modules are focused on developing YOU and YOUR management style. Each module has a variety of activities to complete and all include a workplace ‘Mission’ to embed the learning, followed by a guided reflection exercise.
It's about YOU!

✦ About Notion’s STAR Coaching Model®

✦ How to ask more insightful and powerful questions

Some Genuine Success Stories...
“I am now helping my team to unlock their own potential. I am not just taking over and doing it myself and adding to my work load. As a result, I feel less stressed because I am helping individuals to solve problems and not taking them on myself.“
“I recently had a difficult conversation with a team member. Normally this type of conversation would have ended in me getting fairly angry, however, the tools learnt throughout the STAR® programme enabled me to actively listen and be much more constructive which resulted in a far better outcome for both of us.”
“Working across two teams in my organisation I asked questions to find a better strategic solution about how we could automate a previously manual process. The result to date has saved us 600 hours, which equates to 20% of the total FTE of one department and allowed us to move 3 team members onto much higher value tasks.”
“By asking insightful questions and engaging team members in discussions around decision making, I have started to get to know the team better and can see them more as potential allies in working towards a streamlined and effective service. By unleashing the potential within the team I can already see them take more ownership. The team is benefiting from personal and professional development and my time is freed up to think about future initiatives rather than always playing catch up, and the organisation benefits from having a happier and more effective team, leading to more robust and dependable services.”
“I am using the skills to have weekly Operational Coaching® conversations with my sales team to specifically help them increase their closing rates. This has led to increased revenue this month of £100,000.”
“The key success for me has been the time I have managed to create in my own schedule by coaching the members of my teams to take more responsibility for finding solutions to problems and taking ownership of next steps.”
“Rather than ‘spoon-feeding’ the next steps, we are now moving towards the members of the team proactively taking responsibility and bringing potential solutions to me.“
