What are Coaching Superpowers for Managers?

Coaching Superpowers allow a style of “servant-leadership” which aims at leading through the development of other individuals such as team members, colleagues and partners. Within corporations and organizations, this is particularly suited for complex environments where matrix-based responsibilities and volatile teams make it difficult for individuals to have long-lasting impact and reach their professional goals. Within such environments, influencing/lobbying is equally important as driving and Coaching Superpowers accomplishes both.

Equipped with Coaching Superpowers, you will also be highly suited for modern management roles that require you to know how to lead others to formulate a solution on their own rather than advise them to follow a particular direction. Lastly, you will discover a new way of creating transformational relationships with other individuals, allowing for a very effective approach to scale a vision and co-create a common future.
