Leadership and Coaching: Skills to grow and excel as a leader

Organizations and leaders are being challenged like never before. The type of work, the people and the way work is done – all are changing rapidly. The new work environment requires a way to lead that will produce positive and sustainable results; a leadership approach that is continuously adaptable to internal and external change.

How does today’s leader meet these challenges? One tool that more and more leaders are turning to, and achieving great results with, is coaching. Why does coaching work so well in today’s environment? Here are three keys to the power of coaching;

  • The coach approach to leadership is a robust way of leading that can easily be adapted to people and circumstances while at the same time producing desired and sustainable changes.
  • Coaching is not a set formula but a flexible and adaptable tool that evolves with the coach, coachee and environment so that the approach and outcomes are never outdated.
  • Coaching skills can be learned by everyone and can be integrated throughout the organization and sustained for long-lasting positive change.

Organizations that have implemented a coaching culture are seeing results in improved employee engagement, communication effectiveness and improvements to the bottom line.

Learn how coaching is being used by leaders to make positive and sustainable change. Attend our next webinar: Leadership and Coaching: Skills to grow and excel as a leader.

Join us in this interactive webinar to learn:

  • The distinction between mentoring, managing and coaching
  • The impact that coaching has on individuals, teams and organizations
  • What sustainable change is and why sustainable change is so important in today’s environment
  • How coaching skills and a coach approach to leadership can be easily adapted as organizations and individuals change
  • How coaching skills and a coach approach to leadership can produce sustainable change
  • Overview and live demonstration of one key coaching skill every leader can use
  • Time for Q and A

Take the Fast Track to Your ICF Credential

 

Fast Track to ICF Credential

Fulfils the educational requirements for obtaining the ICF ACC credential

Develop the skills and set yourself apart by jumping on the Fast Track. Coaching is becoming more and more competitive and yet many coaches have no credential and minimal training. One of the best ways to set yourself apart is to complete the training and earn a coaching credential.

But pursuing your ICF Credential is a big step and commitment. That is why we created the Fast Track to ICF Credential - to streamline the process and make it as convenient as possible.

Benefits of the Fast Track to ICF Credential include;

  • FAST TRACK: Takes only 6 months to complete (other programs may take as long as 18 months).
  • ROBUST, DISTANCE-BASED LEARNING: We use cutting-edge technology to create an in-person, interactive classroom experience while you participate remotely.
  • TOP-NOTCH EDUCATION AND TRAINING: You get world-class instruction from expert coaches with experience in both coaching and teaching.
  • FLEXIBLE SCHEDULE: We offer day and evening classes for your convenience, and new classes start throughout the year.
  • AFFORDABLE: This program is priced to fit into your budget. Save $600 USD / $790 CAD when you register for the package option. Don’t need the package option? You also have the choice of taking separate modules a la carte. We even have a payment plan.
    NEW: The Fast Track to ICF Credential now includes three hours of 1:1 mentor coaching.

Our next program (day classes) starts September 9.

Testimonial: Coaching Out of the Box® gave me much more than what I expected. After the first couple sessions of FastTrack I was thinking, wow I've learned so much already and was really excited about what I would know by the end of the program. It didn't disappoint, I feel I'm a much better coach and understand coaching in a way that I never imagined I would. Excited about moving people forward with my new found understanding. - Brad W.
