Coming Soon: Executive Coaching Program

       

The face of management is changing. Organizations are becoming less hierarchical in favor of collaborative and distributed leadership cultures. The old model of “command and control” no longer fits. Today’s leaders must be agile, innovative, and able to adopt ideas from all levels of the organization. They must also know their strengths and understand their weaknesses; only leaders who accept themselves as incomplete are able to compensate for their missing skills by relying on others. Capable of cultivating and coordinating across their organization, these self-aware leaders are committed to continuous improvement—of themselves and of others.

We are pleased to announce that we are currently developing an Executive Coaching Program. Our approach to individualized development combines executive coaching sessions with a leadership assessment tool based on MIT research and frameworks. Stay tuned for details!

Space will be limited in this new offering; email us at execed_coach@mit.edu to let us know if you would like to be one of the first to be notified when coaching options are available.
