One of my primary focus areas was managing and leading change. As a coach, this was an area that interested me the most, since much of leadership is about anticipating and handling changes, and, sometimes, even proactively creating them. In today’s VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous) world, driving through the rearview mirror is no option. Coaching – with its future focus and outcome orientation – is a powerful aid to organizations in leading change.
My own experience was that individual one-on-one coaching was not enough, and it is not possible to do for up and coming leaders. Something more was needed to expand the scope of coaching within an organization to make the process more effective in supporting institutional leadership.
