Leaders as Coaches



Leaders are responsible for bringing out the best in themselves and in the individuals they lead. They need to be able to coach their teams by enabling learning for improving performance. Many leaders are unfortunately not trained in the art of coaching and this can impact the effectiveness of their teams and ultimately, the performance of their organisations.


Discover how you can be an effective coach by understanding what drives people and what interferes with their performance. Practice our proven coaching tools and empowering mindset which are targeted at developing high-performing individuals at home and at work.


How do leaders transform the setbacks employees have at work into real, tangible results for a successful business? How do leaders coach their team to success in both their work and personal life?


This highly interactive and practical workshop focuses on equipping leaders with the skills, knowledge and attitudes necessary to be an effective coach by providing support for growth and performance.

"We engaged Wendy and Thaddeus to help us organize a company wide seminar on the importance of working through global teams and operating with a global mindset. They helped us organize the content of the seminar, provided coaching to a very diverse multinational group of senior level leaders, and helped us gain alignment in the process. The seminar was a tremendous success. Wendy and Thaddeus were professional, responsive and a lot of fun to work with. Their insight and guidance were invaluable. I would highly recommend their services.."
