Leader-as-Coach Program

Elevate your leadership impact one conversation at a time.

High value conversations transform organisations

Effective coaching is integral to the DNA of a genuine ‘learning culture’, a trait of market leading organisations who out-innovate their competitors [1].

Coaching is a skill that effective leaders, at all levels, develop and use daily.  Leaders who provide targeted, ongoing coaching to their people, through high value conversations, improve employee engagement and business performance.

In progressive workplaces, the role of coach has eclipsed command and control practices. Attuned, receptive and relational leaders build the psychological safety and trust which underpins thriving teams and cultures [2].

Investing in coaching competency

Increasingly organisations are investing in coaching as an organisational capacity [3]. However, the ‘Coach Leader’ competency is not a hardwired skill.

Research highlights that leaders are frequently ill-equipped at coaching, while overestimating their proficiency [4]. The good news is that leaders can improve their coaching skills in a short amount of time, but have to invest in targeted learning in order to bridge this competency gap.

Our Leaders-as-Coach Program equips leaders with the framework, skills and mindset to coach more effectively.  Designed and facilitated by respected Executive Coach Kristina Revenda, this evidence-based program will shift the dial on your leadership impact by transforming how you connect with and develop others.

The good news is that managers can improve their coaching skills in a short time (15 hours), but they do have to invest in learning how to coach in the first place...
