CALCOG is offering a leadership course focusing on how to use coaching techniques to build trust and motivate and inspire staff at your organization. The course will revisit and build on the important leadership concepts from the California Academy for Regional Leaders (CARL), but completion of our CARL program is not a pre-requisite. By adopting a coaching approach, leaders can create a culture of collaboration, empowerment, and continuous improvement within their organizations.

  • develop a greater understanding of coaching and motivating others
  • support leadership development in your organizations

Participants in this course will be invited to practice their leadership coaching skills with the CARL 2023-24 program.

This course is designed for leaders at all levels, including executives, managers, team leaders, and supervisors, who wish to enhance their leadership capabilities by adopting coaching methods.

The Value of Effective Coaching

Overall, effective coaching in the public sector can lead to enhanced performance, improved employee satisfaction, better leadership, and a more resilient and adaptive organization. By investing in coaching initiatives, public sector organizations can create a positive and productive work environment that benefits both employees and the communities they serve. Data show that people who feel like they have a great coaching relationship report and 80% increase in self-confidence, as well as improved relationships (73%), communication skills (72%), interpersonal skills (71%), and work performance (70%).
