Learning Leader

Learn Facilitation, Group Coaching & Program Development Skills

Learning Leader is a popular ICA program designed to give coaches the skills and knowledge they need to set up and run Group coaching, Workshops & seminars, Online training programs, Promotional teleseminars and more.

Generally Learning Leader is delivered as live teleseminars.  However, this option of downloadable modules (with audio) and live classes for Learning Labs is for coaches who already have some training and are confident self directed learners.

    What actually needs to be in place to create an exceptional Learning Space?

    What sort of Learning Leader you will be?. How will you “own the space”, what is your unique style?

  • Know Your Learner

    This is the very best place to start; your learner. We look at how you create student centred learning and continue to let students drive the curriculum, or clients drive the coaching (WITHOUT making it a teacher free/coach free zone!)

  • Creative & Flexible Delivery

    There are many ways to run groups and with participants sometimes located in different countries coaches have to be flexible. In this module we explore teleconferences, group skype chats, google hangouts etc. as a means of coaching leadership.

Workshop with Peers

As part of this course you will be required to PLAN, DESIGN and DELIVER  a short learning presentation. This can be in the form of a Group Coaching session, a Teleseminar, a Workshop or Seminar etc. The Business Labs are devoted to you getting your presentation right and are a great space to brainstorm ideas and get advice from our experienced faculty (who themselves are Learning Leaders)
