IMPORTANT: CHANGE IN LOCATION FOR JUNE 14th COACHES BREAKFAST
Coaching can be used for a variety of situations: making complex decisions, resolving professional problems, changing career, improving one’s life… and becoming a more competent leader at work. And when looking at developing the competence of employees - professionals and managers alike, we’re often talking about helping them improve their behaviors, the way they act or conduct themselves, especially toward others. But how do people change their (leadership) behaviors? And how can coaching help make this transformation more effective?
This presentation will introduce an iterative process for (leadership) behavior change. This approach is largely based on the principles of experiential learning theory. We will describe the various components (activities) of the process and explain how they come together in a pseudo-cyclical fashion. Finally, we will discuss how coaching is integrated into the process as a “meta-activity” that enhances the overall effectiveness of (leadership) behavior change.
