TCP’s Becoming a Leader Coach Online Program (Apr 24, 2011)
David Gibson, TCP Associate
We are very excited about our new online program which takes our two-day workshop and translates it into online content with expanded support and coaching. For those who have attended a workshop and want a refresher, or those who are new to a group who have already attended the workshop, the online program is ideal. And for busy managers and executives who are looking for improved coaching skills, the program provides a way to upgrade leadership capacity in a “learning by doing” format without the necessity of being away from the office.
The uniqueness of our offering is that it combines video, guided workbook, and professional coach support in an integrated online format that facilitates learning and practice. The coaching program and its underlying approach have been successfully implemented in a wide variety of organizations for over a decade. The philosophy and research is contained in Leadership Alchemy: The Magic of the Leader Coach. We believe this level of credibility and experience is not available elsewhere. See for yourself by clicking on this link: www.tcpleadercoach.com. You will be able to view the site as a guest and watch introductory videos.
Our sophisticated online platform applies the best practices in distance education including:
- Access to the learning modules on your own time
- A complete workbook guide to aid understanding and application
- A series of videos discussing the content and demonstrating practice, also available as audio for loading onto mobile devices
- A coach-facilitated series of teleconferences with a learning group supported by an online forum for posting questions and comments.
Learning groups participate in 6 bi-weekly calls over 3 months, structured around the Leader Coach® framework of Building Trust, Building Awareness, and Building the Future. Time required is roughly the same as attending a 2-day program, with time between calls and assignments to practice in your own work setting and with a learning partner. You will be asked to create a learning plan at the beginning of the program and to update it when you are finished based on your new skills. A Becoming a Leader Coach® certificate is awarded for successful completion of the program.
The program pricing is designed to be scalable to large populations so that a consistent coaching culture is created in your work group and/or organization. Prices range from $300 to $500 per person for groups of 6 to 12 participants. Arrangements can also be made for individual access and for licensing at the organizational level. Please call for more details.
