Leadership That Works (Charlotte Morse, Altaf Shaikh, Anna Mathison, Rashmi Dixit & Vikram Bhatt, – Living the Inquiry – A Stand for a Different World through Coach Training
Leadershipthatworks as a coach training organization champions and stands for social equity and cross cultural inclusion and competence building. Over the past four years, we have embarked on a journey to bring conscious exploration within our management team and faculty teams around themes of power differentials, privilege and rank dynamics, cultural differences when creating curriculum for coach training and awareness on internalized oppression and microaggressions.
We continue to do this work at three levels:
a. Work amongst ourselves to build a community that operates on shared power dynamics
b. Introduce this work amongst our coach-students and help them link the importance of this work with their own coaching practice.
c. Offer coaching and coach development within communities that are not mainstream and where work on social justice, reducing impact of power differentials and exclusion due to being different is pronounced.
As we have walked this journey, we have learnt, met our own shadow and have gained as people, coaches and coach trainers. We wish to share these insights with yourselves.
