What is Knowledge Based Coaching in the workplace?

Knowledge Based Coaching in the Workplace blends practical coaching skills with underlying theories and traditions – drawn from psychology, self-help traditions, leadership, and organizational effectiveness. This training encourages a flexible approach to the client’s needs, and a recognition that, when appropriate, different areas of knowledge may be helpful to the client, depending on the circumstance, and the client’s openness to learning new ideas or concepts.

What participants say about this program

Knowledge-Based Coaching was taught for all executives in my global team, and guided selected leaders to qualify for the ICF exam.  As a reliable collaborator and mentor Leni is depended upon to produce high quality educational experiences and training to meet our coaching goals. We first met Leni as a coach, and based on her expertise she was then called on to deliver a coaching curriculum for our global team in order to create a coaching culture among our managers.  She is an accomplished teacher, well-versed in course design.

Knowledge Based Coaching in the Workplace is essential for anyone serious about becoming legitimate in their coaching practice. This program takes the science and art of coaching to a new level by combining theories of human development with the pragmatic and practical skills needed for creating a powerful partnership with coaching leaders for awareness and change. Working with Leni is both challenging in the rigor she requires for perfecting one’s practices and revealing in coming to know one’s own capacity for learning, changing and growing themselves as professional coaches.

Leni Wildflower is a fabulous teacher, mentor and human being.  I enrolled in her Knowledge-Based Coaching in the Workplace course to enhance my ability to work with my adult students.  Leni provided excellent skill based information in a clear and enjoyable way.  She digs deep in her teaching.  Leni has moved me from simply advising to becoming a coach, and I learned much about myself through her training as well.

Leni Wildflower and her team are a delight to work with! As part of learning and development for my HR team, we hired them at Getty Images to conduct in-house International Coach Federation certification training, Knowledge-Based Coaching in the Workplace.  An experienced trainer, Leni is attentive to the various levels of coaching experience on a team and makes herself available for follow up calls and discussions to keep everyone focused and on track. She has deep knowledge of the ICF content and coaching theory and practices, and brings many years of academic and practical experience to the program. I highly recommend Leni for coaching/training for ICF certification.

I have been coaching for over 20 years and felt incredibly experienced in this area, In 2014 my husband/partner and I went through Leni’s program and I can’t tell you how much we learned and how it has enhanced our coaching practice, which is our reason for partnering with Leni.  You will not find a program that provides you so much personal attention and is customized to meet your needs.
