IoD North West - Executive Learning Experience 2017

10 Oct 2017
Pro Manchester, Manchester

5 Weeks of Bespoke Coaching and Peer Support

Our Executive Learning Experience is designed to offer the same quality of support as individual Executive Coaching, while also enabling enhanced peer support and networking opportunities.

It is designed to provide a safe, confidential, bespoke and highly valued peer learning experience to IoD members, at an affordable rate (5 sessions of group coaching for less than one session of individual coaching). It provides in-depth learning from peers in different sectors, working with a highly experienced, accredited IoD executive coach to tackle your real-world issues and gaining valuable insights to put into practice.

Groups of between five and eight members will meet together five times over a 6-month period.

The learning group will be run and facilitated by Zoe Cohen, IoD Executive Coach; an accredited and highly experienced senior executive coach.

What can you expect?

    1. Chatham House rules
      These sessions will be completely confidential. Confidentiality allows each member to be open and work through topics that he or she is unable to discuss with others directly associated with their business.
    2. Quality learning
      In depth learning from peers in different sectors, working with a highly experienced, accredited IoD executive coach to tackle your real worlds issues and gaining valuable insights to put into practice. Unfiltered feedback and diverse perspectives can help tackle inertia and deepen the exploration undertaken by the group, helping the member and their company thrive, not just survive.
    3. Magnification
      Focusing the collective awareness of many business leaders on one specific issue generates an intensity of thought that offers high quality ideas and solutions.
    4. Personal development
      Cost and time effective highly personalised learning. The groups not only help solve problems, they help members grow as a leader and as a person, adding new, trusted colleagues to your professional network.
