For more more effective leadership across differences
Culture matters for leaders — of all sorts — to more effectively support and offer appropriate guidance to those they interact with. Coaching and mentoring models have been proven to foster effective leadership. Applying a culturally-adaptive approach to coaching and mentoring makes them all the more powerful.
In this course — designed for both those who are already coaches as well as those who simply want to use these methods in their work — you’ll learn what these models are and how they can help you and those you work with build greater trust, create more authentic connections, and generate more productive outcomes.
*By request, this course has been extended to be a 2-day workshop so that participants have more practice and feedback time using the techniques shared.*
No matter what your title, if you lead in a professional or organizational setting, this course will demonstrate the importance of cultural self-awareness and reflexivity — and provide you with practical tools for use in your everyday 1-1 interactions with those you coach and/or mentor, whether formally or informally.
Join this course to explore the ”Why, What, and How” of applying culturally-adaptive coaching and mentoring. It will help you and those you interact with to bring better versions of themselves to all that they do.
Gain practical culturally-adaptive skills and techniques — such as using silence, statements, and stories — in order to help your stakeholders to gain clarity, discover their own solutions, and better collaborate across differences.
In addition to mentoring and coaching expertise, Dr. Nagesh Rao has led sustainable campus-wide intercultural competence development and diversity and inclusion programs/systems in higher education around the world.
