From Leader to Coach

Transforming Your Followers - And Yourself - For Maximum Impact

Leading, Managing, Coaching. Much like physical activities of walking, skipping, and running – while they seem similar, each requires different skills and strengths. We’ll help you develop stronger coaching muscles by addressing questions such as: How is coaching related to servant leadership? How do you push people past their comfort zones but maintain their trust? Should you be a player/coach? How can you best think strategically about developing others?

As a result of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Define the relationship between leading and coaching
  • Learn the best practical strategies from well-known coaches
  • Practice a variety of coaching approaches and tactics
