The Leader As Coach

The LAC Programme is a deep, intensive, invigorating, experiential learning training programme, intended to be run ‘in-house’, on or off site for client organisations. It is designed to be accessed by managers who have ‘people responsibilities’ at all levels of a sponsoring organisation. Previous interventions, for example, were accessed by managers from board level all the way through to inexperienced team leaders and first line managers. 

When LAC is deployed in this way the degree and depth of coverage ensures that change will occur naturally, and organically, as well as creating a common language for leadership and management throughout an organisation.

It has been run in a wide variety of organisational settings, suitably adapted, tailored and adjusted for each specific environment, ranging from Brewing, Finance, High Street Retail, The Music/Entertainment Industry, Publishing, Manufacturing, Aerospace, Engineering, The Charity Sector and various Government Departments.

It is based on FIRO Theory and another of my programmes ‘The Art Of Facilitation’. The technology is tried and tested and has been kept rigorously up to date so that in 2018 it encompasses the most recent findings and practices on Emotional Intelligence, which have been fully integrated into the programme.

Rooted firmly in FIRO Theory®, The Human Element Process®, The Art Of Facilitation, and the latest thinking on Emotional Intelligence, approaches which enable participants to understand their fundamental interpersonal strengths and areas for development.
