Learn to improve individual and team performance by developing the necessary behavioral, relational, cognitive, and emotional tools. The LCF Program places emphasis on personal leadership awareness and skills development.
Understand. Practice. Enhance. Performance Feedback
Academic LearningFellows will complete a Coaching Workshop and Seminar, which provides the introduction to the LCF Program, the administrative information needed to complete the program, and the theory and practice of coaching an MBA team. This training will provide the fellows with practical situational exercises with their assigned Executive Coaches.
Experiential LearningThe LCF Program is highly experiential and based upon opportunities to facilitate and coach other MBA students in the context of their assigned Goizueta IMPACT core teams and coach the team members in 1:1 sessions. The work will extend beyond the core courses into the capstone coaching practicum experience when Fellows are assigned to a specific Goizueta IMPACT elective course team. Fellows will meet/observe a team a minimum of three 90-minute sessions, each session should include an informal after action review. Fellows provide 1:1 coaching to members of their assigned team, meeting with them 1:1 at least once.
Reflection LearningEach fellow will be assigned a ‘Professional Executive Coach’ to assist them in developing their coaching skills. The Executive Coaching activity will include individual sessions and group sessions with all of the fellows. This will extend across semesters incorporating a minimum of three (3) Fellows Cohort group sessions and at least two (2) individual sessions. This will be done with the objective to learn from reflection and feedback of what is working, what is not working, and what areas need improvement. Additionally, LCFs will use a coaching journal to reflect on their coaching experience and write a 'reflections paper' at the end of the program.
