The traditional notion of leadership as strategy and control from a distance according to a pre-determined plan of action – the proverbial leader commanding the troops from a position on the hill overlooking the field of battle worked well, in times when assumptions didn’t change so regularly.
In times of rapid change when high levels of complexity and uncertainty are the order of the day, individuals and teams must understand the organization’s direction and be empowered to work toward it using their best capabilities and judgments in the moment. In these circumstances, the role of leadership shifts to one of shaping the understanding, development, and learning of team members so they can act both independently and in concert with the goals of the whole organization. The leader becomes a coach. To be an effective leader in today’s times, you must be an effective coach. Our “Leader as coach workshop equip you with mindsets and skills need to be an effective coach at workplace.
This program helps you build the skills of a coach and apply that effectively in managing and leading your people.
Timothy Gallwey who wrote the book Inner Game of Tennis and Inner Game of Work. He mentioned the formula, Performance= Potential- Interference. His books had a huge influence on the coaching profession because coaches help to understand the inner interferences and ways of increasing our potential. Mostly the explorations of the inner world was limited at the conscious level without really diving into the interferences arising from the unconscious. Leader's needs arising from the unconscious, like "being in control", "competitiveness", "Trust issues" etc are only dealt with, if the client consciously become aware of them and bring them up for discussion. Coaches are not supposed take clients into the past and analyze the early childhood influences and impact as that would fall in Therapy. Most coach training was rooted on our ability to give meaning and create purpose, and assume that as a healthy individual, clients take accountability.
But definition of healthy can be misleading. show me a sane individual, I will cure him for you" Carl Jung said.
So we think a psychodynamic approach focusing on the interferences from Unconscious is also needed now.
