About the course

In IESE’s Leadership Coaching Program you’ll learn how to motivate and empower others to successfully navigate challenging times. Through a mix of dynamic learning, interactive lectures and coaching supervision, you’ll gain a coaching mindset and fresh strategies to engage and inspire others. This 8-week program will benefit both C-level executives who aspire to foster a coaching culture and executive coaches seeking to magnify their client impact. Learn more about the IESE executive coaching model and how it can help you drive positive change, both in and outside your organization.

Coaching program benefits

  • Cultivate a coaching mindset and core competencies to promote continuous self-development, learning, growth and innovation in your organization.
  • Expand your understanding of human behavior and development and their interplay with executive coaching processes.
  • Acquire essential coaching knowledge and practice to earn ICF (International Coach Federation) credentials.
  • Develop coaching capabilities to help leaders, teams and organizations bolster their performance across diverse contexts and cultures.
  • Gain deeper self-awareness to support your personal and professional growth.
  • Share experiences with peers, coaches and professors in a safe environment.

Program structure

The program is delivered in a blended format, including two five-day residential modules in Barcelona and a remote learning module. Over eight weeks, you will acquire executive coaching fundamentals and grow in self-awareness via experiential coaching sessions and coaching supervision.

Module 1

Develop a thorough understanding of the core components of executive coaching using IESE’s awareness-and-action coaching framework.

Module 2

In module 2, you will practice core elements of individual and peer coaching through a mix of webinars, learning pills, individual readings and mentoring sessions.

Module 3

In the third module, you will apply your newly acquired mindset to different contexts: resilience and stress management, agile leadership and dealing with uncertainty, internal coaching, digital transformation, and diversity and cross-cultural environments.

Learning method

The IESE Leadership Coaching Program uses several different learning methodologies to ensure engagement and a long-term learning impact.

Case method

A core learning methodology at IESE, case studies sharpen your strategic and critical-thinking capabilities by placing you in the role of a chief decision maker. You’ll analyze real-life executive-coaching scenarios and gain new insights in guided discussions with peers.

Interactive lectures

IESE professors foster a dynamic learning environment aimed at leveraging the cohort’s collective expertise. They encourage participants to share their unique experiences and perspectives, making sure everyone’s voice is heard.

Coaching triads

Coaching triads are a highly effective methodology to develop and practice your coaching skills in a safe setting. Using this method, three people alternate in the roles of coach, coachee and observer, who analyzes the interaction and offers constructive feedback to both parties.

Coaching supervision

A “coach for coaches,” this learning practice is founded on reflective dialogue to ensure coaches continuously enhance their performance and ability to benefit their employees and clients.

Team mentoring

Under the guidance of an expert mentor, you’ll work in small teams to resolve doubts and assimilate the core tenets of the coaching model. In the process, you’ll gain new insights from both your mentor and peers.

Recording sessions

Videotaped activities will give you real-time insight on your efficacy and offer a platform for peer learning.
