Each segment of this introduction to leadership coaching
includes three parts:
1. Video – a short introduction to essential coaching
principles and practices by Elizabeth A. Kaye, executive leadership coach and consultant
2. Handout – a one-page PDF for you to read for further
learning and reflection
3. Assignment – a one-page PDF with an activity to help you
further integrate and apply what you are learning
On your own, these materials will help you learn more about
why coaching is a very effective tool for enhancing personal growth and behavioral
change. They also will help you begin to plan how you will continue to improve
your coaching skills.
However, to get the full benefit of this eLearning
experience, we recommend that you engage with the materials along with two or
three colleagues in order to have the opportunity to practice coaching with one
another. You can begin by using the GROW Model with one another.
We are deeply grateful to our two experienced leadership
coaches and colleagues, Elizabeth A. Kaye and Mary McGuinness, for collaborating with us in
creating this eLearning experience.
Permission to use the GROW Model is kindly given by Performance
Consultants International and the estate of Sir John Whitmore.
