Trans­for­ma­tio­nal Leaders­hip Coaching Program for
Leaders & HR-Experts

Vision & Goals

Not Knowing Leaders­hip and all its services exist to enable indi­vi­du­als and orga­niz­a­ti­ons to be success­ful and effec­tive in the uncer­tainty of not knowing and the comple­xity of the present and future world.

We believe that coaches, by working to deve­lop their own skills and through indi­vi­dual prac­tice, become a cata­lyst for trans­for­ma­tion, can expand conscious­ness and initiate a move­ment of conscious leadership.
The Trans­for­ma­tio­nal Leaders­hip Coaching Trai­ning (TLCP) is desi­gned to support orga­niz­a­ti­ons in deve­lo­ping leaders who want to make a posi­tive diffe­rence in their orga­niz­a­ti­ons, their commu­nities and in the lives of the people they lead.
The Trans­for­ma­tion Leaders­hip Coaching Trai­ning supports the draf­ting of the UN goals for sustainable deve­lo­p­ment to raise awareness and achieve an inclu­sive and more sustainable future for all.
The Trans­for­ma­tio­nal Leaders­hip Coaching Trai­ning provi­des a unique vision for trans­for­ma­tio­nal coaching and offers the next genera­tion of leaders, busi­ness owners, HR profes­sio­nals, change agents and coaches a frame­work for holistic deve­lo­p­ment to inten­sify, deepen and broa­den their contri­bu­tion to the world.
The program design and the lead coaches of the Trans­for­ma­tio­nal Leaders­hip Coaching Trai­ning distill and inte­grate more than 10 years of multi­di­sci­pli­nary expe­ri­ence and provide a funda­men­tal and trans­for­ma­tive program that meets the stan­dards of the Inter­na­tio­nal Coaching Fede­ra­tion. We invite our parti­ci­pants to join a commu­nity of others who are commit­ted to incre­a­sing the holistic success of busi­nes­ses around the world.

Prere­qui­si­tes for your Participation

1. We since­rely aim for an opti­mal fit between what you are looking for and our trai­ning. This is very important to us. We offer a deman­ding trai­ning with quality stan­dards that require a high level of commit­ment. There­fore, we take the time it takes to get to know you and your wishes as closely as possi­ble and really answer your ques­ti­ons. In a preli­mi­nary tele­phone call we would like to clarify: Is the chemi­stry right? Do we share the same values? Is our trai­ning the right thing for you?

  • Do you have at least 5 years of profes­sio­nal experience?
  • What do you want from parti­ci­pa­ting in a coaching training?
  • Are you willing to prepare a 2‑page paper that gives us an insight into the moments of your life where you have perso­nally expe­ri­en­ced transformation?
  • Please let us know which are your prefer­red prac­ti­ces of self-reflection.
  • We recom­mend a coaching-rele­vant arti­cle, which you ideally read before our tele­phone call (10 minu­tes reading time).
  • We recom­mend that you fami­lia­rise yourself with the ICF core competencies.
  • Iden­tify two of your current profes­sio­nal or busi­ness chal­len­ges. What keeps you awake at night?
  • We will conduct a kind of „dialo­gue inter­view „* with you. During this inter­view we will get to know each other and you will have the oppor­tu­nity to ask ques­ti­ons in order to achieve maxi­mum clarity as a basis for your decision whether or not to parti­ci­pate in the TLCP.
    – *= ‚Dialo­gue Inter­view‘ (Otto Schar­mer). This inter­view aims to engage you in a reflec­tive and gene­ra­tive conver­sa­tion. It will provide insights into ques­ti­ons and chal­len­ges you are facing. It begins by buil­ding a gene­ra­tive field for the program that you – should you decide to do so – want to help shape with us

2. Should we all say „Yes“…

  • Then you will conduct two „stake­hol­der inter­views“. Anot­her parti­ci­pant will be assi­gned to you as your lear­ning part­ner or „buddy“ for the dura­tion of the trai­ning. To support the deve­lo­p­ment of your buddy (and he/she is yours) from the begin­ning, you and your buddy will conduct two stake­hol­der inter­views each to gain insight and feed­back on each other’s deve­lo­p­ment. You will plan and conduct the inter­views BEFORE the program begins. Please take notes during the inter­views, print them out and bring this summary to the first module of the program.

3. For success­ful parti­ci­pa­tion in the Trans­for­ma­tion Leaders­hip Coaching Trai­ning, keep the following in mind throughout:

  • Parti­ci­pa­tion in all atten­dance modu­les and virtual meetings.
  • During the program you will have conti­nuous coaching prac­tice with at least 2–3 coaching clients or 20–30 hours of coaching.
  • Throughout the program, you will consist­ently engage in self-obser­va­tion, posi­tion-fixing, self-reflec­tion prac­ti­ces such as super­vi­sion or through diaries or exer­ci­ses for deep listening with other participants.
  • Between modu­les you will meet regu­larly with your buddy and/or buddy group to deepen your under­stan­ding of coaching and the prac­ti­cal appli­ca­tion of ICF core competencies.
  • During the modu­les you will be fully invol­ved in order to pro-actively contri­bute to a success­ful group experience.
  • As a member of this group you will try to become and remain aware of the effects of your conscious and uncon­scious behavior.
  • You will remain open to feed­back (recei­ving and giving) and try to use any irri­ta­tion or chal­lenge in gene­ral as an oppor­tu­nity for growth.
  • You will always try to contri­bute to the growth and deve­lo­p­ment of the other parti­ci­pants through your way of being and acting.
  • You will remain open in your own deve­lo­p­ment and in conver­sa­tion with the Lead Coach and your Mentor Coach.

Coaching Approach & Philosophy

We at Not Knowing Leaders­hip believe that coaches, through deve­lo­ping their skills and indi­vi­dual prac­tice, become a cata­lyst for trans­for­ma­tion: they expand their own conscious­ness and can thus initiate a move­ment of conscious management.

  • The Trans­for­ma­tion Leaders­hip Coaching Program is a valu­able cata­lyst in suppor­ting orga­niz­a­ti­ons to deve­lop such leaders who want to make a posi­tive diffe­rence in their orga­niz­a­ti­ons, their commu­nities and in the lives of the people they lead and accompany.
  • The Trans­for­ma­tion Leaders­hip Coaching Trai­ning also supports the draf­ting of the UN goals for sustainable deve­lo­p­ment to raise awareness and achieve a more inclu­sive and sustainable future for all.
  • The Trans­for­ma­tio­nal Leaders­hip Coaching Program provi­des a unique vision for trans­for­ma­tio­nal coaching and offers the next genera­tion of leaders, busi­ness owners, HR profes­sio­nals, change agents and coaches a frame­work for holistic deve­lo­p­ment of people and systems to deepen and broa­den their contri­bu­tion to the world.
  • The program design and faci­li­ta­tors of the Trans­for­ma­tio­nal Leaders­hip Coaching Trai­ning distill and inte­grate more than 10 years of multi­di­sci­pli­nary expe­ri­ence and provide a funda­men­tal and trans­for­ma­tive program that meets the stan­dards of the Inter­na­tio­nal Coaching Fede­ra­tion. We invite our parti­ci­pants to join a commu­nity of others who are commit­ted to incre­a­sing the holistic effec­ti­ve­ness of orga­niz­a­ti­ons in the world.
  • The Trans­for­ma­tio­nal Leaders­hip Coaching Program is a profes­sio­nal foun­da­tion and trans­for­ma­tio­nal coaching program in align­ment with the ICF. It is focu­sed on the whole person and the whole system and supports indi­vi­du­als to deepen and broa­den their contri­bu­tion in the world to a vision for Conscious Entre­pre­neurs­hip and ulti­mately for humanity.
  • We believe that coaching is a colla­bo­ra­tive, non-direc­tive conver­sa­tion that brings about deve­lo­p­ment and trans­for­ma­tion through inves­ti­ga­tion, reflec­tion and conscious selec­tion of new behaviors.
  • Trans­for­ma­tio­nal coaching explo­res the inner world of the client’s beliefs, assump­ti­ons, values and expec­ta­ti­ons in order to create grea­ter oppor­tu­nities for being, living and leading in life.
  • Trans­for­ma­tio­nal coaching does not focus prima­rily on what the client does or does not do, but rather on crea­ting awareness of what is going on for the client (inside) – what leads to certain desi­red or unde­si­red behavior.

We use the following approa­ches to support the deve­lo­p­ment of the participants:

  1. System Theory (N. Luhmann)
  2. Construc­ti­vism (H.v. Foers­ter, P. Watzlawick)
  3. Adult Deve­lo­p­ment Theory (Jane Loevin­ger, S. Cook-Greu­ter, R. Kegan, S. Garvery-Berger, Dr. T. Binder)
  4. Nonvio­lent Commu­ni­ca­tion (NVC/M. Rosen­berg, R. Gonzales)
  5. The Inner Team (F. Schultz v. Thun)
    Inner Family System (Richard C. Schwartz)
  6. Leaders­hip Theory (Tran­sac­tio­nal to Trans­for­ma­tio­nal, Situa­tio­nal Leaders­hip, S. Sinek)
  7. Trans­for­ma­tio­nal Presence Leaders­hip (Alan Seale)
  8. Mind­ful­ness (Jon Kabat Zinn)
