Leader as Coach



To establish an atmosphere for change management, engagement, and resilience, organisations must invest in training that brings a coaching style to leadership.


Change is a fact of life and it’s been said many times that leadership is about coping with change. Professional coaching supports a long-term strategy for reducing mounting tensions and uncertainty among employees.


Leader as Coach – is an interactive four-part program by Genos International that will equip leaders with the knowledge, tools, techniques and frameworks to facilitate effective coaching in leadership.


The evolving business environment presents challenges for leaders at all levels. Leaders need to understand, guide, and direct people more than ever before in order to craft and support employee wellbeing, productivity and company culture.


Coaching conversations are the foundation for all of these leadership actions. Many leaders can struggle with these discussions or misunderstand the role of coaching as a leadership tool. The 'Leader as Coach' program takes an evidence-based approach to help leaders become powerful, emotionally intelligent coaches that get the best out of people.


Prior to attending the workshop participants take part in the Genos Emotional Intelligence Assessment; a multi-rater assessment providing personal insight into strengths and development areas essential to coaching conversations.



After completing the Genos Emotional Intelligence Assessment the participants receive a digital report. This feedback demonstrates emotional intelligence in their interactions from one of the most reliable sources – those who see and interact every day. The digital report walks them through their results and guides them in the development of a personal development plan. Participants bring their plans with them to the program sessions to help personalise their learnings from it.
