Coaching VIP

Extend your learning and growth experience with R9HSA’s annual The Leadership Challenge Workshop for Managers and Directors

Through the action-oriented conversations, coaching will be conducted by professional executive coaches who do not work internally within the organizations where the Head Start leaders are employed. 

Coaching will be aimed at enhancing goal attainment, increasing resilience and workplace well-being while reducing individual stress as these leaders implement changes within their organizations.

Time will be provided between coaching sessions for participants to try out new ideas and/or different leadership behaviors and support will be provided to build and inspire momentum.

In the past, participants have reported that coaching that continues after The Leadership Challenge has supported them in increasing self-confidence and personal insights, built management skills and helped participants to positively and actively contribute to supporting others within their organizations in adjusting to important organizational changes.

Findings indicate that short-term coaching can be very effective in supporting leaders in implementation of their discoveries after participating in 360 degree leadership assessments, and that evidence-based executive coaching can be valuable in helping professionals to effectively work with the uncertainly and challenges inherent during organizational changes and move forward in deepening the positive effects of their leadership over time.

At the time of registration in The Leadership Challenge, the participant will provide permission for the assessment results to be emailed to the coach to review prior to the initial coaching session.   After completion of The Leadership Challenge, the coach will reach out via email to make the initial introduction and to schedule the initial coaching session at a time convenient to the participant.
