The IESE Leadership Coaching Program uses several different learning methodologies to ensure engagement and a long-term learning impact.
A core learning methodology at IESE, case studies sharpen your strategic and critical-thinking capabilities by placing you in the role of a chief decision-maker. You’ll analyze real-life executive-coaching scenarios and gain new insights in guided discussions with peers.
IESE professors foster a dynamic learning environment aimed at leveraging the cohort’s collective expertise. They encourage participants to share their unique experiences and perspectives, making sure everyone’s voice is heard.
Coaching triads are a highly effective methodology to develop and practice your coaching skills in a safe setting. Using this method, three people alternate in the roles of coach, coaches, and observer, who analyze the interaction and offer constructive feedback to both parties.
A “coach for coaches,” this learning practice is founded on reflective dialogue to ensure coaches continuously enhance their performance and ability to benefit their employees and clients.
Under the guidance of an expert mentor, you’ll work in small teams to resolve doubts and assimilate the core tenets of the coaching model. In the process, you’ll gain new insights from both your mentor and peers.
Videotaped activities will give you real-time insight into your efficacy and offer a platform for peer learning.
