Leadership and Coaching: The Perfect Duo to Unleash your Team’s Full Potential

This workshop is based on Ruchira’s best-selling book Coaching: The Secret Code to Uncommon Leadership. She shares the rationale behind utilizing coaching—a fine balance of managing and guiding—to support teammates. Exploring some of the key ingredients of impactful leadership including those also critical to effective management, she will also offer tips and tricks, backed by research and incisive insights, on how to become an effective leader-coach.


Here are the key takeaways from Ruchira that you can apply in your professional life.

What Coaching Is:

  • Coaching is helping someone discover their strengths.
  • Coaching is about maximizing performance and potential.
  • Coaching is about guiding and advising; not about solving someone’s problems for them.
  • Coaching is asking, not telling. It’s the what, not the why.

The 4 Cornerstones of Coaching:

  • Capability: Helps you be the best that you can be, unleashes your unique potential, sparks creativity, innovativeness, lateral thinking; helps you excel and hack your way up that ladder
  • Consciousness: Helps you become more aware of who you are
  • Confidence: Gives you self-belief to go forward
  • Clarity: Gives you direction; helps you arrange the knots in your head AND TO MAKE THESE CORNERSTONES COME ALIVE, WE NEED TO CREATE A CULTURE OF COACHING
