This course involves the coaching faculty in sharing the tools, techniques, and stories from their successes and challenges specific to ECQ coaching with federal employees and teams. The course is designed to provide you with the criteria needed to coach high-performers who desire to take the next big step in Government leadership at the Senior Executive Service level. 

The course features mini-discussions and presentations, coaching exercises, case studies, individual and small group exercises, and most importantly discussion with experienced Federal Government coaches who are currently working as internal or external coaches.
