Coaching for Leadership Masterclassby Cory Dobbs
In this Masterclass I set out to explore some perennial debates within the field of Leadership Studies. This course is of great significance to coaches interested in the new science of leadership, teamwork, and teambuilding. It has been developed with the intent of exposing the common assumptions that inform the ways in which a coach goes about recognizing and developing student-athlete into leaders.
Not Your Regular Leadership Experience
Why, you might ask, is it necessary to have a leadership development course for coaches all ready steeped in leadership? What makes this class different is I do not favor feel-good pop psychology; rather your journey should produce a more fruitful intellectual dialogue than is generally the case in leadership courses and workshops. First, I take a bold approach that is often critical of contemporary coaching and development of student-athletes. Second, I take an interdisciplinary perspective on leadership. Much can be learned from other disciplines—such as history, business, social science, philosophy, and cognitive science. And thirdly, I endeavor to offer a balanced perspective on leader development offering up the pros and cons of various approaches.
In short, the aim of this Masterclass is to help you navigate the complex and confusing terrain that is leadership and leader development.
