iLEAD & Coaching
They are closely related, as coaching is a valuable tool for enhancing the effectiveness of leadership development programs. Coaching helps individuals identify their strengths and areas for improvement, set meaningful goals, and take deliberate action towards achieving those goals.
Coaching also helps individuals develop the mindset and skills needed for effective leadership, such as emotional intelligence, resilience, and communication skills. A coach provides tools and strategies to help individuals manage their own thoughts, emotions, and behaviors, and to develop a growth mindset that emphasizes effort, perseverance, and learning from failure.
Coaching is particularly valuable for individuals who are participating in the i-LEAD Leadership Development Program, as it provides them with one-on-one support, guidance, and accountability. A coach helps individuals identify and address any challenges or obstacles that arise during the program, and develop strategies for overcoming them.
Overall, Coaching is a powerful complement to the i-LEAD® Leadership Development Program, as it provides individuals with the personalized support and guidance needed to develop their leadership skills and achieve their full potential. By incorporating coaching into our leadership development program, organizations can build a strong pipeline of leaders who are equipped to drive organizational success and make a positive impact in their role
