Coach-like Skills for Leaders

Leaders today

must be trained with coach-like skills. 


We train leaders in the essential coaching skills 

needed for impact and influence.


Foundations is the first course in our 5 part series that provides a powerful introduction to the techniques and skills of coaching. Participants are introduced to concepts like powerful question asking, how coaching is different than managing, how to listen, and how to be with the person in front of you.  With a focus on experiential learning rather than traditional lectures or slides,  participants will have numerous opportunities to practice coaching and receive feedback on your newly acquired skills.

At the end of the course, participants will have a clear idea about how coaching will positively impact your communication and relationship skills, at life and work.


Dreaming is about envisioning possibility. It is the state of imagining what could be and enlisting yourself and others in a process of creation. In this coaching course, participants will develop skills to help themselves and their relationships step in discovering and living  their unique values, identifying self-limiting beliefs, and creating their personalized vision for a resonate future. By the end of this course, managers will be able to create compelling visions for themselves and their teams in new ways.

Dreaming, in the end,  is about the human art of imagination and execution. If we can imagine it, we can build it.

Mindsets & Habits

We are always in a perspective.  And just because we’re in one doesn’t mean that is the truth.  It is A truth.

This workshop will train participants in noticing how their own mindsets shape their worlds, and how some mindsets are more powerful than others.  Like anything, having the ability to notice and shift one’s mindsets requires repetition and skill, which is why the second part of this training is dedicated to forming powerful and lasting habits.

With the right mindsets and habits to reinforce them, anything is possible!

Emotional Literacy

The 17th century French philosopher Descartes once said, “I think therefore I am.” We believe that this is only half of it.  Emotions make up the other half.

In this training, participants will expand their emotional range, vocabulary, and ability to simply “be with” strong emotions.  To be a good coach relies far less on problem solving but far more on establishing relationships of trust and open communication.  At the heart of this is the ability to empathize  in a way that makes team members feel heard and seen.

In the end, isn’t this what we all want?


Being a coach-like manager requires incredible presence, self-awareness, and self-management. It also requires holding team members as naturally creative, resourceful, and whole.  This can be a delicate balance for coaches (who are also managers), who must often balance competing agendas at the same time.

This training will engage participates in the careful dance of coach and manager, and the dance of interchanging the skills learned in the 4 previous trainings: Foundations, Dreaming, Mindsets & Habits, and Emotional Literacy — sometimes  done all at once.
