Executive Coaching - MGSM867

This unit is subject to a quota. Limited places are available. Please refer to the Faculty for further information

Executive coaching provides a “coaching space” for enabling others to realise their potential in the context of the workplace and it spells out the conditions of effective “conversations for action” so essential to management. It recognises that while technical competence may be a necessary, it is not a sufficient condition of effective performance and that effective performance requires a well-developed person. It is grounded in the importance of transformation and learning through reflection on lived experience, in the premise that we often cannot see our own limitations or blind spots by ourselves and that a coach not only helps us to see our limitations but enables us to see things in new ways so that we can act, do and develop in new ways. This unit will enable managers to bring out their coaching competencies and practices of “conversations for action.” This unit recognises that coaching is more than a set of skills and that to coach effectively; we need to discover the coach in ourselves. To this end this unit is experientially grounded and aimed at enabling you to discover the coach in yourself.
