Welcome to Episode 37 of Building My Legacy.
In this podcast Glain Roberts-McCabe, a renowned leadership trainer and a “leader at heart,” tells us how she developed The Roundtable. Since 2007, The Roundtable has taken a unique approach to executive coaching by bringing leaders together to teach each other. As an aggregator of knowledge and expertise, The Roundtable offers a number of programs, all based on the concept of group – or peer-to-peer – coaching.
Glain explains that every program The Roundtable offers starts with the strategy and priorities of the participants’ organizations. She believes that leaders are there to do a particular job, “We’re hired to deliver results.” The Roundtable programs help leaders develop their own coaching skills as they share and exchange information about the specific challenges they currently face in their organizations.
So if you want to know:
- What group coaching is – and what it isn’t
- How to get the “big bang for the buck” behavior change
- Why promotions and continued career success depend on “how you’re showing up”
- The difference between being a good mentor and being a great coach
