Leader as Coach (online): Coaching as a Leadership Approach, Mindset, and Process
Coaching is part of every business interaction, implicitly or explicitly. Promoting learning and growth in individuals and organizations, it plays a role in increased employee engagement and satisfaction. While leaders are often promoted into leadership positions without having developed the skillsets needed to lead effectively, the Leader as Coach (Online): Coaching as a Leadership Approach, Mindset, and Process program provides the understanding needed to consciously manage the boundaries between mentoring, coaching, feedback, and holding others accountable.
Leader as Coach is designed to equip executives to catalyze learning, contribution, and excellence in themselves and others. Program participants will walk away with a foundational mastery of coaching skills at both the intra- and inter-personal level. They will also be equipped to become growth agents in their organizations and help to influence and transform the systems they lead, both through formal and informal authority.
Through its online format, the Leader as Coach (Online): Coaching as a Leadership Approach, Mindset, and Process learnings are available to a wide range of executives, not constrained by geography or industry, and creates a peer community of coaching-minded leaders who wish to connect to develop themselves and each other.
Participants will emerge inspired to see every moment, every interaction, and every change in their organization as an opportunity to coach.
The program will help you:
- Develop a foundational mastery of coaching skills at both the intrapersonal (coaching yourself) and interpersonal (coaching others) level
- Become a growth agent in your organization and influence the systems you lead, both through formal and informal authority
- Understand how to create a culture in your team where every interaction becomes an opportunity for learning, contribution, and excellence
