Lagos Business School (LBS) has introduced an Executive Coaching service for participants on its Executive Education, Executive MBA and Modular Executive MBA programmes.
The Executive Coaching Service is an inquiry-based approach to personal and professional development that is aimed at creating awareness, generating action, and facilitating learning and growth. Through one-on-one interactions with coaches, participants will improve their performances at work by developing and sustaining new perspectives, attitudes, skills and behaviours.
MBA Director, Uchenna Uzo spoke on behalf of the LBS Management Board, following the finalisation of the decision to kickstart the service. He said, “We have introduced the Executive Coaching Service to improve the overall leadership and management effectiveness of our executive participants and we will be engaging coaches certified by the International Coach Federation (ICF) to achieve this”.
Uzo added, “We remain committed to our mission of developing responsible leaders who will solve the social and institutional business problems that currently face Nigeria and Africa. We also aim to prepare these business leaders to effectively deal with future challenges that may arise in their workplaces and industries”.
Some of the coaches who will be participating in the Coaching Service include CEO, OLCA, Lanre Olusola; CEO and Lead Coach, Alex & Jefferson Consulting, Abiola Orojo; Lead Consultant, Swissfocal, Sunny Enebi; CEO, Coachivate, Folake Adeniyi-Adeleye, among many others.
Recall that in April 2019, LBS launched the Executive-in-Residence Scheme, a volunteer programme that seeks to provide an opportunity for executives of leading Nigerian corporations and multinationals to share their vast knowledge and experience with participants on LBS C-suite executive programmes.
The coaching service will officially kick off in April 2020 and run for a duration of six months to one year for each participant. An orientation programme for potential coaches will, however, hold on Friday, March 13, on the LBS campus.
