Coaching Meta-skills Workshop
Workshop with Prof David Lane (UK) & Dr Michael Cavanagh (Australia)
“Beyond best practice: Developing a coaching approach for complex situations: meeting your client’s needs in challenging times”
The world facing leaders and organisations is more complex and interconnected than ever before. The myriad of significant challenges facing organisations, (including responses to climate change and the aftermath of the global financial crisis) cannot be solved with “business as usual” approaches. They require a different level of thinking in order to develop innovative and sustainable solutions.
Aware of the significance of these challenges and their complexity, those who purchase coaching are increasingly looking for demonstrable value to justify coaching engagements and leadership development. In this workshop, we will explore the key components of developing a compelling coaching model for today’s world.
Drawing on cutting edge research in leadership and coach development David and Michael will facilitate an exploration of the challenges facing you and your clients and the development of a coaching model that meets those needs.
