The Leader as coach – January 21, 2015 workshop

Announcing an exciting opportunity for coaches and leaders in our community! The Leader as Coach: Building leadership and organizational capacity through coaching


Workshop overview:

In our rapidly changing organizational landscape, leadership requires sophisticated self-awareness, comfort with complexity and ambiguity, and understanding that leadership is a broadly-based capacity because no one person has all the skills and intelligences needed
to be all things to all people.

Coaching as an essential practice in the way leadership is applied in this new landscape focuses on developing and empowering others to share leadership responsibilities according to their roles and capacities. Continuous learning and adaptation are fundamental
values in this evolving terrain.

The leader is a coach, orchestrating the best performance from each individual and the team as a whole, leading from the inside out and modeling values in action. The program will introduce the Leader Coach process and provide opportunities for practice and feedback. Our experiential teaching style integrates theory, practice and reflection for action throughout the day. Resources are provided for going further in applying learning in the workplace.
