Leadership and Innovation

Leader is Coach

Group Training + View more dates & times


We believe that all leaders “show-up” more effectively, have greater influence with those around them, and have a more significant cascading leadership impact if they harness, promote, and diffuse a coaching mindset always. Leader AS Coach could suggest being a coach is simply one of the “hats” a leader wears; whereas, we typically use the language Leader IS Coach to convey a more permanent and dedicated mindset and approach to leading others. Bottom line, we believe you cannot lead effectively without coaching and you cannot coach effectively without leading.
