Training program for leaders and internal coaches

Build the critical mass of motivated competent credible change drivers. (Internal only)

Every organizational transformation will encounter confusion and conflict with the old structures and practices, let it be Agile adoption, or building the culture of Continuous Improvement. Also, change and improvement are inherently slow and ineffective in large fragmented organizations.

Currently, the informal network of the key people of all roles and levels is running the system. There will be meaningful lasting change only when these key people are actively coaching their local working environment, using their knowledge, credibility, and new change leadership skills.

This training, tailored for your organization, onboards and initiates new people to the Coaching Community by giving the fundamental skills for teamwork and leading change, analyzing the organization together, and practicing continuous improvement in connection with the sponsoring management. More at our Consultation page.

For technical, process, and business extra days or separate trainings need to be added.

Who is it for

For organizations that want to have a lasting change in their culture, leadership and ways of working.

Participants are influential people with diverse roles and expertise, who know how the organizational system works.
