Hands-on Workshop - Leaders as Coaches: A NASA Journey


Come hear about NASA’s journey with Coaching.  In this session, you will learn how leaders act as coaches for employees at NASA then have an opportunity to share your own journey and dialogue with participants to learn from a variety of perspectives.
For several years, NASA (National Aeronautics & Space Administration) used strategic coaching engagements to support leadership development, technical excellence, and organization effectiveness. Budgetary constraints and a recognition that leaders must engage their workforce differently led NASA to build internal coaching and appreciative inquiry skills into leaders at all levels.
You will learn:

  • The differences between Coaching as a separate discipline versus a leadership imperative
  • How employees and leaders respond to the Coaching paradigm
  • To differentiate Coaching from performance management
  • Specific strategies to grow Coaching skills in leaders at all levels of your organization
