The Art of Coaching Teams Masterclass

Elevate your leadership skills through increasing your toolkit, knowledge, and capacity in this exclusive series

Description

Leaders need to be skilled at engaging a range of strategies to move teams towards outcomes, while also having the transformative and adaptive skills to attend to the hearts and minds of those they supervise. This masterclass brings together administrators, managers, coaches, and leaders from a range of organizations to reflect on all aspects of leadership and to fine tune those required to elevate one’s practice. Participants will expand their leadership skills (skills applicable in a virtual and in-person world) and will learn with and from each other. We will engage in honest reflection of what leadership entails and how we can translate best practices into our contexts. We will explore how to ensure that practices center the humanity of all involved, without diluting meaningful outcomes. Topics include: how to make decisions equitably and responsibly, navigating conflict and resistance, and exploring specific problems of practice with support from our larger leadership community. This two-week intensive will balance self-paced work with live sessions to process and learn together.

What people say

The Bright Morning team adapted well to the virtual learning environment. I can tell they were intentional about incorporating adult learning principles and considering the unique stressors of being in front of a screen all day. The experience was transformational in that I was able to reflect on inner work I need to do as well as providing practical strategies to improve leading and working inclusively with others on my teams.
