This course is about the development of leadership coaching skills through practice.
The best leaders don’t create followers, they create leaders.
This course builds and hones your coaching and facilitation skills to enable you to develop the leadership effectiveness of others.
Based upon the training program that our in-flu-ence coaches completed to equip them to coach participants within our leadership programs, the Leadership Skills Coaching Program (LSCP) builds participants’ competence and confidence in developing the influencing skills of others.
We are delighted to be able to offer LSCP for the first time ever to alums who have successfully completed our leadership development programs over the last 20 years and are interested in developing their leadership building skills.
Our face-to-face time will, to the largest extent possible, be focused on building your effectiveness at constituent coaching and facilitation behaviours. We’ll do this by creating an environment where you’ll repeatedly practice these behaviours, receiving specific feedback from both your peers and the faculty coaches to accelerate your development.
The Leadership Skills Coaching Program is delivered over two full weekend intensives (Friday evening through Sunday afternoon) one month apart.
To participate in LSCP you must have successfully completed either one of our custom corporate leadership programs or one of our MBA leadership courses (USyd’s LP&D, the Leadership residential within USyd’s EMBA; EB, MS at AGSM; or LEAD at the Booth School of Business).
