Coaching is a crucial competency of a leader. There are many coaching models and courses to help you become a better coach. This is not one of them. Instead, this program helps leaders and coaches help their clients make the right decision every time. Using the Strategic Decision Making model, the Strategic Excellence Coach will help their clients uncover their true intent from the decision question, guide them to idenitfy success factors and use these to propagate options. 


In addition, this program will empower the coaches to lead the thinking over time, framing the decision around constraints, identify the system the situation is framed within, and the drivers from there. This will allow the coach to help the client focus on the holistic options, and expanding on that through reframing.


Finally, the coach will help the client come to a risk-appropriate decision.


This program uses the 8-Steps of the Strategic Decision Making model.
