While the Leader as Coach course is designed to develop the leader’s own coaching capability, this course goes beyond the ‘how to’ of coaching. Specifically this course aims to equip delegates with sound knowledge and judgment that will help them recognise when and how taking a coaching approach is effective, desirable and ethical. In other words, in addition to helping leaders hone their coaching skills, this course puts coaching in the context of a leader’s wider responsibilities.
The course is delivered by highly experienced executive coaches who can relate to the realities of senior leadership from their own experience. Combining coaching theory with real-life examples, the aim of the course is to enable delegates to form their own links between theory and practice and gain confidence in their coaching abilities as they learn.
Assessment is optional with Oxford Brookes Business School awarding 20 CATS points at Level 7 (Masters Level) for all who pass the assessment.
This course has been developed following demand from corporate and public sector clients who wish their leadership teams to be at the front of introducing and embedding a coaching culture within their organisations.
