Course Description

As organizations move through one change to another, coaching is increasingly being recognized as critical support for change leadership and management. In any change it is individuals that actually implement whatever change is being initiated. Coaching leaders help individuals (and teams) make the best use of their own resources to meet both personal and organizational goals. A leader who coaches can be a catalyst to increased resilience, creativity and performance for individuals and organizations in the midst of the change cycle. This course is aimed at helping you learn to use a coach approach as a leader. You will explore your individual philosophy of leadership coaching and practice coaching skills with others. Coaching is a conversational skill; the course has a strong emphasis on application of knowledge. Your most powerful learning about coaching will happen through practice. The course is designed to move from theory to practice in such a way that you experience the benefit of coaching for your own development and the potential that coaching offers for others. It is also designed to incorporate and apply whatever knowledge and experience you may already have with coaching. • To clarify what coaching is and how it contributes to individual and organizational performance; • To examine models and processes for coaching; • To increase your personal mastery in establishing coaching relationship; • To increase your skill and confidence as a coach in listening, questioning and supporting the person being coached towards higher levels of performance and satisfaction; • To examine opportunities for coaching in your own context.
