Watch the video : Why learn Leadership Coaching with Robbie Steinhouse
Designed and presented by leadership coach, business leader, NLP School founder and published author Robbie Steinhouse, this course will teach you all of the fundamental skills and tools required to coach and mentor leaders and their teams to navigate the ongoing challenges they face in a fast changing world.
Different skills at different levels of Leadership
Playing a leadership role within a business requires new skills at each new phase of the leader’s career. The skills and attitudes needed to successfully lead and manage a small business unit are different to those required for more complex businesses such as those with multiple locations in various countries. Each new phase of this career path has its own unique challenges and potential dangers.
Coaching provides a roadmap to navigate these changes and a sophisticated way to address the complex psychological needs for ongoing career success. Smart executives seek out mentoring from their contacts, peers or advisors. Although this is extremely useful, it is important to know the limitations of this approach. People have their own agenda and often a narrow ‘world view,’ - however good intentioned, they tend to impose their own autobiography onto the situation the client is wrestling with. They lack the professional skills required to help the client design their own decision-making processes and help them test those decisions in the real world.
Making time for longer-term thinking
Ambitious business leaders are often overwhelmed by the sheer volume of activities they have undertaken. They struggle to make the time for longer-term strategic thinking. Coaching provides that special time needed for clients to move their thinking from ‘in the business’ to ‘on the business’. This boosts their energy and focus which can hugely impact their productivity and success.
This course is designed so it follows a realistic path of what a group of coaching sessions would actually be like between a coach and executive client. This gives a ‘fly on the wall’ experience of the entire coaching journey, from their first session together right through to the end of the coaching contract. After each session, Robbie presents a further video explaining the coaching process and how it can be used in a broader context with different clients. Lastly, a questionnaire to test your knowledge and gain your certification.
Sample part of the course. In this video extract, Robbie explains the rationale behind adopting a "coaching approach" to leadership.
The course uses the latest technology from Moodle, the world’s leading e-learning system and provides a state-of-the-art interactive experience, similar to attending a live coach training with the opportunity to interact and practice with other students.
A unique approach based on real-life experience
For coaches, consultants, mentors or those with relevant training, Robbie’s experience, including coaching business leaders (and receiving leadership coaching himself), provides a unique approach to help clients shift significant psychological blocks and build a roadmap for success. It also provides all that you require to coach professionally within corporate businesses and large organisations. We also provide details of the leading professional accreditation bodies, along with their code of ethics and how to continue your development as a coach.
This course will teach you how to successfully coach business leaders and their teams so they can identify essential changes needed within their businesses. It additionally provides a coaching approach to help clients improve their leadership, management and decision making. If you would also like a sophisticated approach to your own business development and success, where you can simultaneously gain a professional certification and gain some powerful business leadership coaching, then this course is for you.
'Following one client through a series of coaching sessions works really well and is very engaging, and telling the story of a coaching relationship like this brings the theory to life.
It’s especially encouraging for trainee coaches to witness the (masterly!) simplicity with which a coach can create the conditions for lasting change to take place within a client.' Professional Coach
