Program Name

 

Applied Leadership and Coaching for Business Leaders

Who Should Attend
 

Anyone with the responsibility for directly, or indirectly, managing others

Course Description
 

The words “leadership” and “coaching” may have become clichés in today’s business world yet they are the undeniable elements of success in today’s more networked and empowered organizations. To many managers, though, these words are nebulous and refer to intangibles, even measures of some sort of inherent charisma.  In actuality, the skills, methods, and approaches that underlie great leadership and coaching are very definable, and can be practiced and perfected by anyone managing people in an organization.

This program provides participants with a series of highly pragmatic approaches to the task of leadership including, and indeed centered upon, coaching. Each topic that is covered is discussed in terms of how it can and should be applied. Rather than dealing in generalities and hypothetical examples, the program is unique in its focus upon real-world issues and tackling the barriers and hurdles that sabotage all efforts to exhibit effective leadership and coaching in the day-to-day world.

Each topic starts with drawing on well-established and grounded theory, and then moves quickly to the application of that theory. Simple, yet highly powerful, checklists and processes are offered, along with best practices. Through the successive work assignments, participants will have the opportunity to immediately apply new skills and methods and then to share their findings with their peers and the facilitation team.
