Successful organizations require exceptional leaders who can get the best from others while training them to become leaders. “The Academy for Leadership Coaching” at Benedictine University’s Moser Center for Adult and Professional Studies introduces managers to the principles, techniques and skills required to become effective leaders. Through “The Academy for Leadership Coaching,” students will learn the coaching principles and skills of self-awareness, self-management, effective listening, intuition, reinforcement and feedback. Upon completion, students will have the ability to develop leadership skills in others. “The Academy for Leadership Coaching” is divided into two levels. Level One consists of three, three-and-a-half hour modules – Values Clarification, Personality Exploration and My Leadership Styles. These courses will be conducted from 6:00-9:30 p.m. on three consecutive Wednesdays, May 16, 23 and 30. Level Two courses reinforce coaching skills by exploring such topics as Conflict Management, Change Readiness, Relationship Building, Interpersonal Communication and Work Life Balance. These three-and-a-half hour courses will be offered beginning in the fall. The courses are taught by Teri Clancy and Casey Boguslaw of Clancy & Company, a firm that provides coaching and consulting in the areas of career management, leadership development and organizational development. The cost for Level One (three courses) is $650 and the cost for Level Two is $250 per course.
