Leader as Coach – The Coaching Mindset
Growing and equipping people is critical to good leadership.
Great leaders understand that getting the best out of their team is not about the leader having all the answers. Its about working collaboratively and supporting each team member to explore their options and to find the best way forward with support. They use a coaching style in their everyday conversations and communication. They are not advice – givers, instead they are solution – facilitators and they do it consistently.
If you could encourage and engage the individuals you work with, would you be more likely to see them bring their A-game?
Coaching Mindset is a one-day workshop that gives you insight into the attitude of a coach.
The program is designed for those leaders and educators who want to incorporate the mindset and questioning style of coaching into their every day conversations with their team members and their students.

It is especially useful when your advice is being sought; you can turn the advice-seeking into a collaborative conversation where the solution is being designed together.
