1. About Coaching Positive Leaders

chessBusiness executives and organizational leaders can make a real difference in the world but many of them do not understand what they need to know in order to have a positive impact on the employees, companies and organizations they lead. Many have been promoted to top positions because they have executed specific work skill sets well, but have not acquired the skills and competencies that it takes to be a successful positive leader.

In eight one-hour classes, we will look at positive leadership coaching and how it is different than other areas of executive coaching. We will learn the leadership competencies, skills and techniques that are key to leadership development and what will motivate leaders to create positive change. You will hear some specifics about Foster’s years coaching leaders in a wide range of businesses and organizations.

This interactive class will address some of the challenges and benefits of positive leadership and how coaching can maximize the benefits while working with the challenges in a productive manner. Students will be encouraged to share their experiences in coaching leaders, and several case studies will be shared so that students can look at best practices for coaching.

In the last class, we will explore ways to grow your business of coaching leaders. The goal of this class is to have you feel competent to coach positive leaders effectively.
