leader as coach
an introduction to coaching for leaders
what is coaching?
Revered 1980s pioneer of Coaching and Leadership Development, Sir John Whitmore, defined coaching as "unlocking a person's potential to maximize their own performance. It is helping them to learn rather than teaching them."
Whitmore's G.R.O.W. model remains today the simplest, most widely used, and most effective framework for transforming problem solving conversations into coaching opportunities. It is the model we use in our Leader As Coach program for communities and organizations seeking to create human-focused workplaces for the 21st Century.
what is a coaching culture?
A Coaching Culture is an organizational development model that enables sustainable transformation by fostering open coaching-style conversations in the workplace on a daily basis.
The introduction of coaching competencies into an organization is a powerful strategy to create an adaptive workplace culture committed to the ongoing process of development and learning.
Communities and organizations that have implemented and developed a coaching culture over time report significantly reduced staff turnover, increased productivity, and greater employee satisfaction.
WHAT IS LEADER AS COACH?
Our Leader as Coach program is designed with humans in mind, to impart the skills and tools to approach problem solving and leadership from the perspective of developing people to develop themselves and the communities they serve, in pursuit of a shared vision for excellence and a values-based organizational culture.
Leader as Coach is offered as a 2 or 3 day in-house experiential program led by our internationally certified coaches and trainers. Participants will learn and practice powerful but easily accessible coaching skills and tools.
