For Coaches


Main accreditation training objective 

The accreditation training for coaching for individual authentic leadership effectiveness comprises 5 days, 4 consecutive days and the 5th day one month later.  This training will consist of theory, demonstration, and practice, and during this experiential training, delegates will go through the actual ALE journey themselves as they experience giving and receiving ALE coaching.

This training commences by considering the need for positive leadership effectiveness. It introduces what authentic leadership (AL) entails, and how it relates to various forms of positive leadership. It highlights the positive impact individual and team authentic leadership effectiveness (ALE) typically has across various personal and organisational contexts. More specifically it explores the impact of AL on enhancing inter-relational trust, and individual and team leadership effectiveness. It explores the criteria that are important in the development of individual and team ALE, and how this can be developed by means of an individual and team coaching programme.

For the most part, participating coaches will experience the six steps of individual ALE coaching, outlined in the book, entitled ‘Authentic Leadership Effectiveness for individuals and teams – A Coaching Approach’, allowing them to develop or increase their own authentic leadership effectiveness before facilitating this extraordinarily powerful journey with their leadership clients.

At times, her leadership clients tell her that the organisational world can ‘squeeze the self out of the self’.  In response, her passion is to facilitate the development of individual and team authentic leadership effectiveness (ALE) towards meeting their organisational outcomes and business results. Research has indicated that whilst authentic leadership is the foundation of numerous forms of positive leadership, it also equates to the highest level of effective leadership. Authentic Leadership (AL), simply stated, is to be true to thy self and thy leadership position, with a strong moral underpinning, for the greater good of all.  It starts with the awareness and commitment to self and, as it pertains to leadership, it needs to include one’s awareness and commitment to how one leads others.
