Leaders of organizations are becoming increasingly aware of the value of coaching skills in the management of change within their organizations. Moreover, astute leaders recognize that the rate of change is ever increasing in a globally interconnected marketplace. Accordingly, coaching skills have become an essential element of a leader’s competencies.
Created and developed by the Mason Institute for Leadership Excellence, the Professional Certificate in Leadership Coaching for Organizational Well-Being is designed specifically for business professionals striving for positive change in team and organizational culture. Greater organizational well-being results in higher levels of employee engagement, increased productivity, and reduced healthcare costs. Leadership coaching is a powerful framework used to engage employees and their organizations to reach optimal results. Coaching ignites well-being in individuals, teams, and organizations by enabling leaders to uncover potential that might otherwise go untapped.
The Mason coaching focus emphasizes strengths-based approaches and methodologies. Our transformative practices deepen self-awareness, develop coaching presence, and facilitate organizational well-being. This experiential program has a competency and researched-based curriculum that aligns with the International Coach Federation (ICF) requirements and coaching competencies.
Upon successful completion of this program, participants will be proficient at a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) level of certification as outlined by the International Coach Federation (ICF).
