Leaders who coach focus on what matters.
The world of work has changed forever.
Community and employee expectations about work show that people want more choice, more responsibility and more meaning.
Combine this with a fast-changing and uncertain external environment, command and control leaders take too long to respond and therefore fail to adapt in their organisations. Overall, business performance is sub-optimal.
Leadership is a key determinant of business performance. To deal with relentless external change and increased internal expectations, new leadership styles are required.
A Leader-as-Coach better adapts to the needs of an ambiguous, complex and fast-changing business environment and creates the conditions for high performance.

THE COACHING CANVAS
The Coaching Canvas is an interactive tool we developed to help leaders see, feel and experience the power of being a leader-as-coach for themselves. The Coaching Canvas applies leadership strengths, agile execution and a coaching mindset to an attractive business opportunity. It requires three things for it to be successful:
A leader open and committed to take risks,
An attractive opportunity for collaborative action, innovation or adaption, and
Energised people willing to challenge the status quo.
We teach leaders how to use the Coaching Canvas and how they can teach others to use it.
