“Leadership is the art of mobilizing others to want to struggle for shared aspirations.”—The Leadership Challenge, Kouzes and Posner
Forward-thinking executives sense the urgency to grow leaders from within, anticipating the fast-approaching “leadership skills gap”. Research shows that companies that invest in growing their leaders gain a distinct advantage in the ability to:
- Build a ‘bench’ of next generation leaders
- Attract and retain high-impact employees
- Improve overall business performance
- Achieve competitive advantage
The Leader as Coach provides an innovative approach to bridge the “leadership skills gap” and accelerate growth of leaders. This training curriculum equips a company’s existing leadership with the knowledge, skills, strengths and coaching tools to develop multi-dimensional leaders – for now, and for the future.
By combining on-the-job experience and real-time feedback, The Leader as Coach participants learn core coaching competencies. Each workshop is linked with actual leadership coaching experiences which enhance the learning process.
