The majority of leaders have expertise in their field and are highly effective at managing business processes and projects. But as they progress in their careers, they are asked to focus more on leading, managing, and collaborating with people. Coaching is what enables us to release the performance and qualities we know are possible in others and ourselves. Yet few of us have received inspiring coaching or formal coaching training.

In this highly interactive workshop, we will learn and practice coaching methods that enable us to transform challenges into creative action. We will develop an atmosphere of candor and deep learning. Through thoughtful, insightful feedback and discussion, we will affirm our strengths and address our limitations in our individual coaching styles. Students will be enlivened by new capabilities that support learning, innovation, and leadership.

Due to its short format, this workshop may not be taken for Credit or a Letter Grade.
