Leadership Coaching Outline

 

Session 1- Introduction to Leadership Coaching 

Find out more about the coaching approach, what it is and how it dovetails with the shift in mindset and behaviours being asked of today’s agile leaders. In this session, you’ll learn  the importance of self-awareness and well as key skills of active listening and questioning.

 

Session 2- What type of change am I coaching for?

This session will deepen participants understanding of how a non-directive approach puts the emphasis on the coachee’s agency and framing their own intent. Participants will leave the session with the concept of technical versus adaptive change and with an understanding of long-term and proximal goals you may be working with.

 

Session 3- How as a coach do I use feedback to feedforward?

This session explores how different types of feedback form part of the coaching relationship. We will consider the value of feedforward and how careful choice of language can transform how feedback is received. We will immediately put this into practice through coaching trios with the role of the observer being tasked with providing feedback to the coach.

 

Session 4- How do I introduce coaching and management tools to support the leader’s development?

This session explores how the coach can build up a toolkit of activities to use with the coachee. From the previous session, and in discussion with the programme sponsor, the facilitator will select the most relevant tools to the context that may add value to the coaching at ATT.

 

Session 5- How does my coaching support leaders to think differently and challenge self-limiting beliefs?

It is important that those being coached can unlock their full potential. It may be being unintentionally limited by beliefs that are holding them back or practices that once served them well but are no longer fit for purpose. This session introduces how to work with leaders to surface limiting assumptions and immunities to change. Participants will leave the session with tools and techniques and a structured framework for unlocking these.

 

Session 6- Who am I becoming as a coach and how can I continue through leadership coaching to have optimal impact on those I work with?

This session brings together theory and practice and self-awareness about the participants’ own development and coaching philosophy underpinning their personal style of coaching. It revisits the fundamentals of coaching, will explore further active listening and the concept of presence. The facilitator will task the group to consider what is required, individually and collectively, to ensure leadership coaching is sustained and has optimal impact across ATT.
