Why Leadership Agility Coaching?

Now more than ever, organizations in all sectors need a new kind of leadership. As a leadership coach, chances are you regularly scan the landscape for new ways to update your practice to help your clients develop new levels of effectiveness.

Our in-depth original research on leadership agility builds on the “vertical development” perspective pioneered by Bill Torbert, Bob Kegan, and others. It reveals that, as leaders grow, they evolve through “levels of agility” that correspond to well-established stages of adult development. As leaders develop through these levels, they become more agile: more strategic, collaborative, and creative, and more proactive in learning from their experience.

LEADERSHIP AGILITY Coaching is a highly interactive online program for experienced coaches. Through self-paced video learning, lively breakout exercises, and group discussion, you will learn how to integrate this sophisticated vertical development methodology into your practice.

Program Modules

This program includes three modules, each with its own set of short workshops. Each module is a prerequisite for the one after it. (To see options for “placing out” of certain workshops, scroll down).
