Online “Flipped Classroom” Content Delivery

Coach2Lead is best delivered in a flipped classroom format. This blended learning approach reverses the traditional training arrangement by delivering instructional content online.  Leaders watch the online modules at a time best suited to them. Precious face-to-face meeting time is focused on collaborative discussion and coaching skills practice.

The flipped classroom intentionally shifts instruction to a learner-centered model in which class time is dedicated to exploring topics in greater depth and creating meaningful learning opportunities, while educational technology such as online videos are employed to deliver content outside of the classroom.

Flexible Program Formats

Because Coach2Lead is built using a blended learning module approach, it is highly flexible and can be delivered as a stand-alone program or embedded as part of a larger initiative. For example, Coach2Lead has been delivered:

  • As part of an integrated program designed to increase Senior Team Cohesion
  • As the learning segment at annual Executive Planning Retreats
  • As part of a High-Potential Leadership Development program
  • As the core initiative to create a Culture Transformation
