Leadership development (LD) is a critical component of OD.  LD prepares our current and future leaders to address complex challenges in our organizations and society.  Executive coaching is one highly effective way to assist individuals in developing their leadership vision, knowledge, skills, abilities, self- and other-awareness so that they may positively impact the world.  In this highly interactive session participants will apply a practical framework for leadership development through guided, real-play executive coaching sessions.  These sessions will inspire participants to tap into their aspirations and motivations and begin to identify their ideal leader selves.  Participants will learn how to apply the framework to develop leaders capable of contributing in all types and at all levels of organizations throughout the world.
