Course is sold out with a waiting list. FLNSD to offer again in Spring and Fall of 2023.
Fieldstone Leadership Network San Diego is pleased to present Coaching as a Leadership Tool, an expert developed 3-course learning opportunity that is designed to smooth the ups and downs of one’s leadership and management journey and prepare one to use coaching as a leadership tool in managing others.
Incorporating coaching into one’s leadership style has proven to help one to transform, renew, energize and inspire a team while nurturing effective and humane organizations, networks and communities. In a world of increasing complexity, we need more leaders who are equipped and able to lead like this.
“The course is offered to address the far too common situation of expecting staff to manage others without the benefit of the training and resources they need to succeed. Unfortunately, once on the job, leaders frequently discover they aren’t prepared to lead a team or manage others. Coaching as a Leadership Tool will provide the opportunity for nonprofit professionals to learn what they need to be successful in leading and managing people. And this is an important way we can support leaders as they work in our sector” shares Janine Mason, Founder of FLNSD and program facilitator.
The program, called a learning path, is comprised of three separate courses that combine to create the certificate program:
The Self-Aware Leader
This course is about taking time to explore your own values as a leader. The focus is on the “inner” you in leadership. Of course, this process of self-reflection is an ongoing
task — one that never ends. This course provides you the window of time to focus on self-awareness. You will participate in many leadership assessments that give you a better understanding of your own strengths.
Build Your Organization’s Bench: Leadership and Coaching Conversations
This course is about using a coaching strategy to make your role less stressful while building the capacity of your team members and the productivity of the organization.
The Capable Coach
This course will further one’s understanding of coaching competencies and how to use them productively in managing and developing the people on one’steam. In the coaching role, managers emphasize the use of questions and active listening to help others be more successful in their work, problem-solve effectively, and accomplish their goals.
The certificate program includes online learning which is done independently and then in-person group sessions which follow each course. These “Coaching Conversations” are unique to the Coaching as a Leadership Tool program offered by FLNSD. They have been designed by our founder, Janine Mason. Mason will also facilitate the in-person training sessions.
The course is available to those currently in a leadership position or a leader aspiring to manage others. It is crafted to provide learners with a toolkit of resources and the confidence to coach their team to reach their full potential. Participants who complete all course requirements are eligible for an E-Certificate and a digital badge in Coaching as a Leadership Tool.
The first offering of this course began in August. It will be offered again in Spring and Fall 2023. Registration is now open for the Spring course. Registration link is below.
