Executive Coaches need to understand the basic tenants of leadership in order to provoke new insight and learning with established and emerging leaders. Using an article published in the Harvard Business Review entitled How Managers Become Leaders by Michael Watkins*, the facilitator will discuss the seven seismic shifts of perspective and responsibility each leaders must master to make the leap to leadership.

Craig Juengling, PCC will facilitate a discussion among the participants to develop new coaching conversations with their clients, a deeper insight into leadership competencies, and discuss a practical and meaningful homework assignment for client needed to drive home the seven principles. Participants are strongly encouraged to obtain the article for important pre-reading of the topic to be discussed. Go to Harvard Business Review site for additional information.

Participants will:

1) Understand the difference between managing and leading

2) Using the seven shifts... create new insights and new learning resulting in a clear client path to leadership;

3) Help clients set clear behavioral goals to demonstrate leading versus managing.
