Leadership development is a $350 billion industry across the globe and a portion of that money is spent on coaching. In the past, access to coaching was restricted to senior leaders, but what if that person got coached earlier? How would that impact their leadership skills, their workplace, their families, and their lives? A growing number of colleges and universities are excited by these possibilities and are offering coaching to students to help prepare them for leadership roles even before they’ve been hired.

 

Listen to today’s episode to learn:

  • How colleges and universities are incorporating coaching into their programs

  • Potential opportunities for coaches to work in this capacity

  • Measurement and metrics for coaching programs

  • How coaches can find out about this work
