As a more senior engineer you start delegating tasks and coaching other more junior engineers. You might start guiding a team. This brings its own challenges. Maybe you recognize some of the statements below:

  • I still rather do things myself than delegate them to others
  • Coaching and motivating colleagues takes more effort than I wish
  • Is it hard to find the right balance between letting go and stay in control?
  • How to move from a group of individuals to a high performing team?

The goals of delegating and coaching is to get more work done together and grow professionally as a team. To make sure the work is done successfully, and your colleagues are happy to work for you, a structured and skilled approach is necessary. In this training you will learn how to become an inspiring delegator and (team)coach.



  • The 'Team coaching skills for engineers' training can be organized as in-company training as well.
  • If on-site training is not feasible, we can discuss providing a live, interactive online (virtual) or hybrid training.


After the training you can recognize the typical challenges early on and can successfully deal with them. You will be able to:

  • Organize yourself so you can organize others;
  • Set the right priorities and choose what to delegate and what not;
  • Assess the task maturity of colleagues and determine the right coaching style;
  • Be flexible in your coaching style;
  • Setting up a plan that will secure the right outcome;
  • Knowing what knobs to turn to become a high performing team.

Intended for
