As social and emotional intelligence practices inform current thinking, leaders are shifting away from a command and control style of leading. At the same time, organizations realize the importance of employee engagement and they are looking towards new ways of inspiring and motivating their staff.

Two strategic areas that are having a tremendous impact on this new way of leading, directly involves coaching: managers are doing more coaching, and coaching as a practice is being scaled across organizations.

If leaders truly want to motivate their workforce, build an organization of high performers, and attract and retain millennials, then organizations will need to invest in coaching. In the Art and Science of Leadership program you will acquire the emotional and social intelligence skills needed to become a more mindful, empathetic, coaching leader.
