Personal Values & Blind Spots

Foundation Module 1 in Leaders Who Coach™

Leaders Who Coach™ have to know what they stand for and what impact they have on the people they lead if they want to show up at their best — inspire and motivate. This Foundation course is the first module in Leaders Who Coach™ and is foundational to your growth as a leader who coaches.

Personal Values & Blind Spots is the prerequisite course to Module 2 — Grounded & Connected (Self-Paced and Cohort courses) and forms the foundational module in Leaders Who Coach™ Certificate Programmes (Self-Paced and Cohort). This Module 1 is INCLUDED FOR FREE with Module 2 and the Certificate Programmes.

Course Outcomes

  • Know your own values and what you stand for
  • Know what enriches you, what blocks you and what depletes you
  • Identify your blind spots and how you might be derailing yourself
  • Understand what’s happening in your body and brain when you are honouring or compromising on your values
  • Understand how others show up in their personal values
  • Identify the shifts of behaviour that are within your control
  • Be inspired to design your own style of leadership

The optional 7-Day Values Challenge (within the course) will take you on a journey of greater self-discovery as we understand our brain better, how we can manage stress better, discover Ben Franklin’s 13 Virtues, learn how we too easily break trust, what it means to show up with integrity, when being vulnerable or over sharing can in fact introduce risk into your situation, and learn to identify other people’s values so you can acknowledge them and speak ‘their language’.

Testimonials from Leaders Who Coach™ Graduates…

Courses & Programs

I had not thought too much about taking a leadership course when Sehaam asked if I might be interested in Leaders Who Coach™.

Managing a team of 21 (including other people managers), I knew I wanted to learn more and be a better manager. I’d been working with Sehaam as my coach for a while and saw many opportunities with the course as it was focused on coaching and conversation skills. Communicating with clarity has always been an area I’d like to improve in!

I found the course extremely beneficial for my role, and I learnt new skills every week. The group I worked with was amazing, and we had productive conversations every week, which further enhanced my learnings and takeaways. Sehaam is both an excellent coach and course leader! The weekly tutorials were easy to follow, and the assignments kept me accountable each week.

As we’ve now wrapped up the course, I find myself going back to my learnings again and again. I feel more confident in my conversation skills and awareness of how I can communicate with more clarity. Not only am I able to have more productive 1:1s, but I am also able to coach my direct reports to be better people managers and leaders who coach themselves.

Leader Who Coach

Leaders Who Coach™ is a great course for getting the most out of your team. It is an honour to lead people and your people are the company’s biggest asset.

Throughout the Leaders Who Coach™ course, we learned to listen to our direct reports, spot areas to delve into thoroughly, as well as action plan and ensure tasks are delivered and ownership achieved.

In a broader sense, the course made me trust my team more and reduce the chance of unmet deadlines. Great course, great teacher and the Enrichment Cohort, talking to other people in similar situations really helped to get different opinions.

Courses & Programmes

When I first signed up for Leaders Who Coach™, I was intrigued to explore what a leader who coaches looked like. Having worked with Sehaam before as an Executive Coach, I knew that I would get prompts for deep thinking, reflection and that a lot care would have gone into the materials.

I hadn’t prepared for just how much richness there was throughout this journey! It exceeded my expectations. I got a clear sense of what my core values are, had enlightening conversations with those closest to me to understand how others receive my communication, shone light onto my blind spots, and got multiple opportunities to practice my listening and conversation skills.

The video content was well structured, easy to digest and the cheatsheets were handy quick reminders that I could keep with me day-to-day. The Enrichment Calls were exceptionally valuable, even on days when I felt like I might not have much to add or was tired, I came away feeling nourished and refreshed.

Through this course, I’ve gained the confidence to trust in my leadership, lead in ways which align with my values and to shake off the pressures of what I’ve thought “leadership” traditionally looks like. I’m excited to work with others and walk the journey with them, seeing them thrive in their own decision-making and be a resource rather than an instructor.

Real growth, confidence & mastery in leadership

Glenn Martin

I have defined my leadership style through this course, established my values and the type of leader I want to become through a foundation of continuous improvement and learning. I’m more confident actually having a conversation about my leadership qualities now. This was something I struggled with and avoided prior to coming on this course.

It has given me confidence in leadership that was completely missing before coming on this course. The Leaders Who Coach™ course has been a journey of learning and a healing process where I have reconciled the experiences of the past with the vision for my future.

I enjoyed the Enrichment Calls the most — the opportunity to share the week’s learning, and trial that learning in a safe space with trusted fellow cohort members, was really exciting!

Sehaam Cyrene is first-class as a tutor – calm, engaging, funny and generous – combined with her experience, knowledge and expertise, you learn in an environment that is very empowering!

Glenn Martin, Talent Acquisition Leader & Speaker
Ben Miller

Leaders Who Coach™ is built upon weekly skills and capabilities modules. Each one includes learning and assignments but the value game changer for me was the weekly Enrichment Calls. These were an opportunity to explore real-life situations and practice the capabilities with Sehaam and fellow students. Digital environments which focus on experiences which are intentional and interactive work for me.

Sehaam’s course also left me with a deeper awareness of who I am.

Coaches have an open, non-judgemental, and instinctive capacity to understand where we’re at and where we’re trying to get to. They prioritise relationships over tasks and build trust from the get-go.

Our society needs these capacities at scale because without trust, truth and cohesion, nothing works. This isn’t a quick fix, and we can’t impose it either. It’s a process we must always work in a space which Leaders Who Coach™ can hold for us to explore together.

I wasn’t doing my best as a leader or for my team outside of technical growth, so when the opportunity to join Leaders Who Coach™ came up, I was interested in the content and the way the course seemed to approach leadership.

The lectures and assignments were of fantastic quality and the lectures were certainly ones to pay attention to, easy to digest and take notes on. The assignments actually made me take action in the real world rather than looking at theoretical scenarios so I actively made an impact.

Sehaam was fantastic — her passion and knowledge coming through during the Enrichment Calls with the group. Not letting people stay silent is a good skill to have as a tutor!

I can say I have grown as a leader and am certainly still growing. My team have noticed a difference on how I approach topics and questions, and I don’t immediately drive to a solution from my own opinions. They’ve been receptive of the initial one-to-ones that we’ve had and are starting to drive their own growth roadmaps even during a very busy period.

I really enjoyed the course. I had no expectations due to never having completed a management course but I feel like I have gone from zero to learning a lot!
