Assessment-Based Leadership Coaching

(7.5 ICF training hours)

Assessments are potent tools to open new awareness and accelerate development. Using a leadership development assessment combined with coaching makes growth personalized, practical, and powerful.

But how do we use an assessment in a way that both honors the ICF core competencies and propels leadership development?  This course is designed to do just that.

The recent book “The Work of Leaders” by Straw and Davis, is a meta-analysis of the writings and research of more than 300 organizational development experts. They also analyzed responses from hundreds of thousands of leaders. That’s a lot of data!

They found that the three main jobs of leaders are:

  1. Crafting vision: A great vision is developed through exploration, boldness and testing assumptions. During visioning it’s important to remain open and think big picture. It takes being adventurous and a willingness to speak out. Shared visions are empowering and inspiring.
  2. Building Alignment: Your team members and stakeholders need to be aligned with the vision, and they need to be bought in before it can be effectively executed. This takes clear communication and dialogue with a genuine receptiveness as perspectives are exchanged. With the buy-in built through this process, the vision can be made a reality.
  3. Championing Execution: This takes both momentum, structure and feedback. While much of the work of execution is done with a managerial hat on, leaders drive the process by providing a plan and analysis. Leaders also address problems and offer praise. 
You will learn how to coach leaders using an assessment based on substantial research. You will take the assessment yourself and have opportunities to coach and be coached, becoming more familiar with the tool and how to coach while using a tool. After the course you'll be ready to use this same tool with others who would like to have an individualized leadership development program based around coaching.
