About the course

How can a leader motivate and retain top talent? What leadership styles are most effective to drive performance? Why does the traditional directive leadership style seem to be sub-optimal in today’s business environment?

A coaching leadership style addresses these questions and leads to increased employee engagement, greater levels of innovation and retention of top talent. In addition it makes employees take ownership for their actions, develops problem solving skills (making them more self-reliant) and drives them to explore untapped potential.

Presented in partnership with Progress-U, a leading executive coaching company, SMU Executive Development (SMU-ExD) offers this workshop which is highly practical and interactive with a focus on how to practice leadership coaching in an Asian environment. All cases and role plays are based on real coaching situations that happened in Asia.

Participants in this Leadership Coaching course will consist of those signing up for the Leadership Coaching and the International Corporate Coaching (“ICC”) Certification Programme Module 1a. For Leadership Coaching participants who decide to continue their coaching journey and want to become a certified coach, it is possible to continue in the ICC Certification Programme.
