Course 2: Specialist Leadership Coaching Workshop

Explores the professional practice of coaching for leadership development through the coach-coachee ‘reflective space’ within organisational contexts.

Workshop methods include experiential adult learning to integrate coachee learning with a range of sound scientifically-supported evidence-based leadership models.

Key learning process drivers are considered, including the place of coach facilitative and expert knowledge and skills, interactions with - and feedback from - the organisational context, and the practice of appropriate advanced ethics.

One day workshop. No MLQ Leadership Course Prerequisites, but MLQ Facilitation Accreditation is an advantage.
