Famed Teamwork Coach Cynder Niemela shares key insights for building high performing teams with participants in the Leader As Coach Fast Track Program
October 10, 2008
Over the past couple of years a profound and important shift has occurred in the way effective managers and supervisors lead their teams.
The Old Way: Lead through command and control (my way or the highway).
The New Way: Leadership based on empowerment and possibility thinking. This new model of leadership is referred to as the "coach approach".
One of the masters of this new coach approach to leadership is Cynder Niemela who authored "Leading High Impact Teams -- The Coach Approach to Peak Performance" and during the summer 2008 Cynder was a guest speaker at the IATF "Leader As Coach Fast Track Program"
Some of the topics Cynder covered included:
- Defining "authentic leadership"
- Systems approach to working with teams
- Best assessments to use with teams
- Why it's imperative to coach the leader of the team (one-on-one)
- and more!
Cynder has more than 25 years of experience in coaching executives and business teams worldwide. Her clients include Ernst & Young, Lucent Technologies, Hewlett-Packard, 3Com Corp, and Oracle Corporation.
