“Our newest research on high-impact leadership shows that formal training tends to be the least valuable way to build leaders—a focus on culture, exposure, organizational context, and continuous feedback and coaching is needed. “
(Bersin by Deloitte 2017 Research Report)
CoachingOurselves peer-coaching is a scalable approach to developing leadership capacity and increasing organizational performance. It is easy to setup, demonstrates immediate business impact, and is a key catalyst to successful leadership and organizational development.
The CoachingOurselves Session
The foundation of CoachingOurselves are the 90-minute peer-coaching sessions for groups of 4-6 participants. Participants go through a process of reflection and dialog on their managerial and leadership practices around specific leadership/management themes.
A CoachingOurselves module provides the theme for each session. This is a workbook with the content, questions, and structure to ensure productive and effective reflection and dialog with specific outcomes. There are over 80 modules covering a broad range of leadership themes and soft skills such as Accountability: It's a tricky world or Silos and Slabs in Organizations.
Sessions are in person or online, and are guided by a facilitator. The facilitator can be an HR professional, coach, or one of the participants themselves (self-directed sessions). All groups eventually become self-directed ensuring a highly scalable and cost effective solution
The impact of peer-coaching is profound and powerful. Participants immediately connect their day to day managerial experiences with conceptual models, which results in them making decisions to take action for change. These insights are the most meaningful learnings for leaders and managers and the impact on the participants and for the organization is immediate.
CoachingOurselves for leadership and organizational development
A series of 90-minute peer-coaching sessions becomes a powerful leadership development program. The modules are selected to align participants’ reflection and dialog with the program goals and guide them along a learning journey.
Structure of a typical CoachingOurselves program:
CoachingOurselves for a Leadership Forum or Management Offsite
Using CoachingOurselves participants to your leadership forum or management offsite can align their thinking with organizational objectives, learn from one another, and come up with actions for change. With our large catalog of modules, organizations can select the perfect theme for their event. The process is completely self-facilitated and is highly effective for groups of up to 500 participants.
We have over 80 modules exclusively designed for CoachingOurselves by leading management and business thinkers, such as Henry Mintzberg, Edgar Schein, Marshall Goldsmith, Philip Kotler, and Nancy Adler.
The modules guide reflection and dialog on a broad range of leadership themes. Our catalog includes classic themes for first line and middle management, such as Candid Conversations and FeedFORWARD instead of FeedBACK, to more nuanced themes for senior leadership, such as Strategic Blindspots and Leading with Humility.
Each module combines high-quality content with questions, exercises, and discussions. Participants explore new perspectives through reflection and story sharing to stimulate learning, skill building, and creative workplace solutions. Each module is intended to guide one 90-minute peer-coaching session for a group of 4-6 leaders, cross functional or intact team, at a similar level in the organization
