Leadership Cohorts

Coaching Others Cohort


The Doerr Institute’s Coaching Others Cohort is an intensive leader development experience in which participants will work to internalize a coaching mindset and demonstrate foundational coaching skills as outlined by the International Coach Federation (ICF). Through these Leadership Cohorts, participants will experience a variety of Doerr Institute programs and have exclusive access to tailored offerings and experts. Participants will also receive 28 hours of CCE credits that they can use toward the ICF accreditation portfolio path.

After participating in this cohort, the leader will be able to demonstrate the following:

  1. a coaching mindset approach to leadership
