Coaching Skills for Leaders
Imagine a leader who is a skilled strategist as well as an outstanding tactician, a leader who has in-depth knowledge and experience in his industry and functional area. Let’s imagine he is also personable, even charismatic, and displays a high level of personal and professional integrity. Are these competencies enough to make him a leader of choice, or to ensure that he takes his organization to the next level? Not in the absence of coaching skills. Organizations are increasingly recognizing coaching skills as a critical leadership competency; coaching skills are crucial in helping leaders build bench strength, enhance employee motivation, and develop true followership.
Leadership, Negotiation and Gender
While opportunities to negotiate exist everyday, women frequently avoid them. As a consequence, creative solutions to problems may remain unexplored, and important needs may continue to be unfulfilled. The Leadership, Negotiation and Gender forum examines many of the special challenges and constraints that women experience in initiating personal or professional negotiations.
