Leader as Coach™

The journey to transform Teams and Businesses

Every leader knows that change is needed but to transform in a way that eliminates bureaucracy and enables others, we must discover new ways of working that prioritize autonomy, agility, and impact.

The Leader as Coach

Management is simple... Leadership is complex. Some of the most salient concerns facing Leaders today are:

  • Demotivated and unengaged team members;

  • Teams lacking accountability and ownership;

  • Inability to communicate effectively as a team;

  • Dealing with conflict;

  • Fragmented corporate culture;

  • Biases in the workplace;

  • Managing a hybrid workplace;

  • Inability to capitalise on the team’s potential. Misalignment and an unclear vision; Developing, retaining and attracting talent.

Through years of experience, we have analysed why these problems occur and how to overcome them. It was within these years of analysis that the Henka philosophy was born.

A critical component of the programme is to facilitate internalisation. Leading with authenticity can only be accomplished through self awareness and reflection.

The combination between face to face learning and self-study is throughout supported by facilitating communication channels. Slack is used to facilitate cross-cohort conversation and email is used to exchange learner input.
