Engagement Overview

Title: Speed and Flexibility in Customization: Sustainable Coaching Workshop
Key Topics:  Sustainable Coaching, Situational Leadership

Engagement Details

Advanture was brought in by another leadership development firm to design and facilitate a coaching workshop for a group of executives at LaFarge (Vancouver 2003). We have a very strong Sustainable Coaching program that helps leaders improve their coaching practices and results and build a culture of coaching on their teams.

One week prior to the workshop, we were notified that the workshop had to be based on the “situational leadership” framework—a program we did not have. Our founder, Joel Shapiro, immediately dove into a few of the most famous books on the topic and re-wrote our entire workshop using a situational leadership platform.

As a result, Advanture was able to deliver a fully formed, cohesive, and customized workshop in one week that included comprehensive summaries of situational leadership, practical tools, a nice balance of theory and practice, plus action planning exercises (i.e., exercises that help participants apply new ideas, skills, and tools to their real life business challenges in real time), along with some original, proprietary content.

The workshop was very well received, and we have since integrated the most important lessons from situational leadership, along with our own advances in the area, into our proprietary Sustainable Coaching framework.
