Leadership calls for more than functional and operational experience within an organizational framework. The most admired leaders inspire others with personal growth, deeper insights, vision, and collaborative sense of purpose.

Leading a Coaching Culture offers pathways to inspirational leadership, based on Rebecca Watson’s books, Conscious Leadership and Creating High Performing Teams.

This course teaches leaders key skills that will allow them to lead from a higher mindset, more efficiently, with more clarity, purpose and positive communication.

This includes core coaching skills, self-awareness and awareness of diversity, managing emotions, having difficult conversations, understanding how leaders shape culture and how to solve complex problems systemically.

What to Expect

Leading a Coaching Culture is an online course, presenting an average of 60 minutes of instruction and practice per week, over a period of six weeks. The blended online training method includes three live, instructor-led discussion and practice groups, plus self-paced, on-demand video training, hands-on exercises, and optional peer-to-peer classmate accountability partners for reinforcement.

Who is this for?
Anyone leading a team from First Line Managers to Senior Leaders who want to inspire others to naturally follow and give their best.

Project and Program leads who need to influence others.

Senior Leaders from the same organization looking to develop a Coaching Culture.

Key Principals

This course is the amalgamation of over 15 years of coaching leaders and their teams across a wide variety of industries.

There are common leadership mindsets and behaviors that lead to high performing, happy teams and cultures.

There are common pitfalls that lead to low performance and exhaustion, plus frustration for that leader.

Ultimately, we all want to be valued and pursue personal development opportunities. We need to keep in mind that ‘People join organizations but leave bosses’.

Once we are connected to ourselves, we can connect well with others. A vital role for a leader is inspiring others with the desire to follow. In this way there is no need to force others to obey, or to be too timid to command respect and accountability.

“Her approach and method is structured, measured, enlightening and fun,” ~ Paul Bartholomew-King, Leader and Innovator, Mastercard

Once leaders have good one-to-one relationships, they need to manage the group relationship. Meetings are a common time waster in organizations. We teach leaders how to have efficient and effective meetings.

It’s the leaders in an organization that create the culture. Therefore, this course is also designed to help organizations create Coaching Cultures where everyone can benefit.

A key principal of this course is the concept that our thoughts are creating reality. It is necessary for leaders to learn how to monitor their own thoughts in any given moment (about themselves, their own capability, other people and their organization) and be aware of how that sets up everyone’s behavior.

This course takes a whole systems approach to the individual as well as the organization and its place in society. Beyond simply transmitting knowledge, we present an integrated approach to learning that also includes the energetic body, emotions and greater purpose/contribution.

“I am much more self-aware, centred and stronger as a result of our work together. Rebecca is challenging, professional but also makes you feel comfortable.” ~ Rupinder Cheema, Head of Global Business Expansion at Jaguar Land Rover
