“A true leader must have the courage to make hard decisions and at the same time be sensitive to hear people’s needs,” the famous American general Douglas MacArthur once said. Leadership that combines hardness and directiveness with sensitivity and listening is called coaching. Many studies and experience of numerous organizations show that this style of leadership is the most effective in building and strengthening people’s engagement. This kind of leadership is expected to a greater and greater extent by new generations of workers, the so-called millennials. This is confirmed by Kathrin Menges, vice president of HR in the global management board of Henkel, according to whom the young generation is interested in working with passion, which forces companies to develop engaging leadership that combines the company’s goals with the aspirations of employees.
At the same time, research shows that this style is the most difficult for managers. Do we like telling others what to do? Most of us do. Do we like when someone tells us what to do? Most of us don’t! This paradox makes coaching leadership a challenge for managers.
The Coaching Clinic program addresses this challenge by helping managers become leaders who combine hard performance with a focus on employee engagement.
Coaching Clinic is the most renowned managerial coaching program in the world, attended by over 150,000 managers and leaders.
Coaching Clinic is a two-day workshop, during which participants receive a number of specific tools that they can immediately apply in the organization, such as the coaching conversation model.

Workshop participants say that the application of coaching skills developed at the workshops has resulted in:

- higher employees’ engagement in achieving goals
- higher job satisfaction of their employees
- higher retention of key employees
