Leadership Development Institutes

The purpose of leadership development institutes is to develop a comprehensive, systematic approach for bringing individuals together to enhance their leadership competencies and ability to work collaboratively. It combines both individual development coaching and group learning sessions.

Peer Coaching

In Peer Coaching we work with small groups of people (4 to 6) identified and approved by their leaders to participate in the process.  The engagement is approximately 6 months long.  Participants meet approximately every 2 to three 3 weeks.  The purpose of Peer coaching is to:

  • Accelerate leadership learning

  • Learn how to be coached and to be a coach to others

  • Provide opportunities for people to optimize and self-direct their learning

  • Provide a forum for people to have valuable conversations, reflection, and develop skills  that apply the GROW (Goal; Reality; Options; Will) framework for coaching conversations

 

There are 3 options.  All options have these components:

 

  • Meeting with leader(s) to identify initial goals and expectations

  • Meeting with Peer Coaching group to clarify goals and establish expectations

  • Coach to goals

  • Wrap-up meeting

 

There are additional components to the second and third option.

 

Option 2: One-on-one coaching sessions are added to the engagement

Option 3: The participants takes two assessments and meets with a coach individually to review results and implications/impact on their leadership
