"Leaders are most remembered for the impact they had on others. In this online interactive program, you will learn how to coach yourself and others to lead with greater authenticity, empathy, and effectiveness."
– Hylke Faber, the program's Faculty Director

Hear from Faculty Director Hylke Faber about the key takeaways of the program.

Coaching is part of every business interaction, implicitly or explicitly. Leaders can learn a coaching mindset and process they can apply to grow themselves and others around them, creating higher engagement, trust, innovation and effectiveness.

While leaders are often promoted into leadership positions without having developed the skillsets needed to lead effectively, the Leader as Coach (Online): Coaching as a Leadership Approach, Mindset, and Process program helps leaders develop coaching proficiency — a core leadership skill — in a way that breaks the learn-forget-learn-forget cycle and provides the understanding needed to consciously manage the boundaries between mentoring, coaching, feedback, and holding others accountable. The program offers a practical foundation of effective coaching methodologies that are based on neuroscience, systems theory, and lessons from the most influential leaders in the world.

Leader as Coach is designed to equip executives to catalyze learning, contribution, and excellence in themselves and others. Program participants will walk away with a foundational mastery of coaching skills at both the intra- and inter-personal level. They will also be equipped to become growth agents in their organizations and help to influence and transform the systems they lead, both through formal and informal authority.

Through their online format, the Leader as Coach (Online): Coaching as a Leadership Approach, Mindset, and Process sessions are not constrained by geography or industry, making them available to a wide range of executives and creating a peer community of coaching-minded leaders who wish to connect to develop themselves and each other. The course is highly interactive, including peer coaching and study groups and live interactive webinars with the instructor.
