The world of leadership is complex. Regardless of the type of organization — corporate, nonprofit, government, educational institution — leaders are challenged to adapt and grow in order to uphold the mission and organizational objectives. Leadership Coaching is a powerful tool to help them do so. The Leadership Coaching Program in the Institute for Transformational Leadership at Georgetown prepares coaches with the mindset, presence, and skills to challenge and support leaders. As a student, you'll grow by focusing on both the being and doing of leadership coaching. This deeply transformative program goes beyond teaching coaching skills and challenges students to grow as human beings in order to help them grow as coaches.
