We provide targeted leadership development for managers and senior professionalss through group coaching. The programs are customised to your organisation’s needs and vary in lengths between 4 and 6 sessions. Sessions are full or half-days and 2-3 weeks apart. We work on leadership and management challenges brought up by the group and participants are asked to test out the solutions in-between sessions. We then follow up at the next session to reflect on what happened when the person applied the solution and refine the approach if necessary.
There are normally no set topics as the aim is to develop leadership and management skills through working on individual issues and problems shared by the whole group. We will draw the group’s attention to common issues and put them in the context of relevant models and tools. These typically include:
- Delegating and Holding Others Accountable
- Having Difficult Conversations
- Coaching for Development/Performance
- Making Sound Decisions in a Complex Environment
- Leading From a Commercial Mindset
- Managing Up and Navigating Organisational Politics
- Collaborating with Peers
- Developing Flexibility as a Leader
Our approach to leadership development is based on guided discovery and coaching, not information download or discussing generic case studies. This means the sessions have no set agenda. We will generally start with a topic and then ask the group to discuss current issues with direct reports, peers or managers that fall under this topic. The group then works on solving the issue under our guidance and based on our initial questioning to uncover the behaviours, context and likely root causes. Solutions are designed specifically for the people involved and go down to the level of scripting the message and when/where/how to deliver it.
