In today’s workplace, leaders are expected to foster employee engagement and performance, while facilitating personal and organizational change. Coaching is the most powerful and underutilized tool in a leader’s toolbox, and it is proven to stimulate thinking, foster accountability, inspire action, and build confidence in others.
The Coach Approach to leadership requires asking questions to facilitate thinking and problem solving. When an employee is asked a question, they feel seen, heard, and understood, and it is significantly more effective than “telling” them what they should do. When leaders ask questions, they help employees move forward to achieve personal and organizational goals.
The eCOACH program features practical models for communicating, coaching, and providing feedback in the workplace. It equips participants with the knowledge and ability to engage, empower, and inspire forward action with individuals at all levels in the organization.
Participants will be expected to do three triad coaching calls where eLeadership faculty (a Certified Executive Coach) will provide mentorship to each individual in the triad on their strengths and growth opportunities as a coach. This highly impactful approach supports each participant’s personal coaching growth and development, while providing an opportunity to practice and observe the Coach Approach in action.
The eCOACH program uses engaging, brain-friendly strategies to help busy professionals optimize their retention. Featuring convenient online content, assessments, interactive webinars, cohort learning, networking, and expert faculty guidance, participants will experience significant personal growth while learning and practicing the Coach Approach to leadership.

The eCOACH program can be taken independently of eLEAD or as part of a sequence in any order. Past eCOACH participants have included managers of all levels including CEOs — with all finding significant value in the curriculum. The program is highly beneficial for any professional who is in a position to lead and/or encourage the personal and professional growth of others.
GROUPS: Organizations benefit when members have a common language to describe best practices, along with the tools to effectively coach each other. As a best practice for group participation, it is recommended to have an internal sponsor or champion participate in order to facilitate further internal discussion and action after program completion.
INDIVIDUALS: For managers, supervisors, emerging and experienced leaders, eCOACH teaches targeted, real-world tactics and best practices to help professionals become more effective and inspirational leaders using the Coach Approach to leadership.
