Host Leadership in Coaching

60-minute Workshop hosted by Mike Brent

This session will examine how we can use the concepts of Host Leadership and apply them in coaching. Specifically we will look at the 4 positions and 6 roles of Leader as Host and how we can use these in order to frame helpful coaching questions.

We will also look at how we can use the concept of Leader’s Guide to the Future in our coaching.

The session will be practical and give you a chance to practise a real coaching using the concepts covered in the session.
