IT Leadership Development Training & Coaching

IT Leadership Development Training & Coaching Overview

This training offered by Turning Point Coaching focuses on developing leadership skills for people in Information Technology (IT). Our training is specifically designed to improve and develop leaders in IT organizations where, historically, the best technical people are often promoted to leadership positions without the proper background or training to handle their new responsibilities. Participants will learn skills to improve relationships within IT and with business partners. Participants identify their leadership strengths, identify improvement areas and design their own personal development plans. Through self-evaluation of their leadership performance, participants identify areas impeding their leadership development and create break-through plans to address these. All participants develop mission statements, identify their core values and learn to give / receive feedback. Accountability partners are established to create longer-term accountability for the commitments created during this training.

To support participants as they blaze their own path to improve their leadership abilities, we include two months of individual coaching for each participant comprised of two coaching sessions each month. These sessions create a support system that accelerates processing and application of the lessons from the training. The coaches also hold participants accountable for following through on actions committed to during the training.

Our training uses discussions and experiential exercises to facilitate participant learning. Our training curriculum is customizable for organizations.
