Leadership & Coaching Resources

Over the past few years we have created a global community of practice to share and enhance leadership and coaching knowledge for individual leaders and coaches wishing to "up their game". From those live events we have created a series of podcasts that you may find helpful.  These range from very specific skill enhancement on specific coach competencies, to more thought provoking philosophical conversations like Coaching and Leading in the Emerging World with master coach Julio Olalla.  There are over 25 podcasts to help you strengthen your coaching practice.

Besides the various podcasts and series, you can also find our surprising "Integral Dice" – to help shift your perspective.

You can listen to a short sample of each of the individual podcasts before making your choices.  Enjoy!
