Workshop Session D.3 – Engineering Leadership and Innovation: Coaching: Exploring Student Leadership Development in Teams and Organizations
Todd Murphy, Adam Goodman, Patricia Kristine Sheridan | While leadership coaching is increasingly prominent and valued in private and public organizations, university faculties have been slow to adopt coaching as a pedagogy. Coaching provides students with a mode for developing their leadership and teamwork skills in project teams/student organisations while creating an intentional and reflective understanding of their leadership skills and capabilities. This workshop guides participants through a condensed version of the coaching training available at the Northwestern University’s Center for Leadership. In this workshop participants will gain understanding of and appreciation for the coaching process, identify situations in their teaching practice in which a coaching approach may be beneficial, establish and practice the skills and techniques involved in coaching students, and become aware of their abilities to coach and be coached.
