Leading With a Coaching Style
Are you concerned that there's too much transactional focus in your organisation? Do you think your current leadership is slow and bureaucratic? Perhaps you've observed that problems within the organisation are solved with a siloed approach?
Leading with a coaching style often mitigates issues such as those noted above, allowing organisations to move away from pure target setting towards more transformational outcomes that enhance the potential of the organisation. It additionally supports leaders in looking at the whole system and identifying how the team can work together for better results. But how can you develop your skills?
About Our Leading with a Coaching Style Course
Our Leading with a Coaching Style course is designed for senior leaders who have responsibility for strategic direction within the organisation.
This course requires leaders to have already established a coaching style in their conversations, meetings, and approaches to establishing culture and values. A coaching style has the power to unleash potential across the organisation, supporting purpose and inspiring customers, clients, investors, employees, and the wider society alike.
During this course, leaders will be given time to experience coaching others and being coached by others. Leaders will use techniques that allow them to observe the impact of their interventions on systems and strategy.
This course additionally aims to provide leaders with a coaching approach for organisational leadership, system thinking, creating a safe and inspirational culture, and gaining alignment with their vision.
"As we look ahead into the next century, leaders will be those who empower others."
