Courage Group believes that the best way to support implementation is to work with leaders and teams on the actual business issues and challenges they are facing by incorporating real time support on delivering on strategic goals and projects. Programs include modelling, feedback loops, action reflection learning, coaching, and mentoring strategies to support leaders to achieve results with their teams. While formal learning is a big part of the program, it is the practice and application of the learning with new ways of being and doing that will make the difference in outcomes. We believe integration of individual coaching into the leadership development program is an essential component to support transformative learning, adoption of new leadership behaviours and to promote sustainable outcomes. “Coaching has a proven impact: add coaching to an initiative and people will focus on that initiative more. Add coaching to training and people learn more, up to 6 times as much in some cases.”
Our Summit Spaces create an environment where it is safe to learn, experiment, contribute and challenge. Our transformational approach to learning opens new possibilities for action and results in individuals’ lives and the organizations in which they work. We work with facilitation processes that pay attention to the multidimensional human being and create conditions that maximize the learning of individual participants and the emergence of collective learning. There are four conditions that support transformational learning: the presence of the other, reflective discourse, a mentoring community, and opportunities for committed action. Transformation is a whole person experience that has emotional, social as well as cognitive components. These are conditions that we co-create in our learning environments.
