iLEAD Coaching Kick-Start

I attended “iLEAD Coaching Kick-Start” course in September 2016. This course offered by Donna Robbins and focused on coaching and its fundamentals, and eventually becoming a better coach-like in our daily lives. It also touched on feedback and different approaches of communicating it.

The following is the outline of the course:

To align with the Organization’s focus priorities and develop the coaching skills of our people managers, the iLEAD Coaching Kick-Start program is designed to introduce people managers to our
coaching model, process and skills, and prepare them to begin having coach-like conversations.
Taking into account both the needs of the modern learner and the business, the course has
been designed to enable a coaching experience that includes a ½ day experiential classroom
session combined with a variety of pre and post workshop activities. This delivery format will
