Managing, Leading and Coaching
Managers are who work in and build teams, understand the use of technology, and engage with customers. The critical gap to be crossed when managers become leaders is understanding the use of power. Leaders shape their environment, strategise the use of resources, influence the team and organizational culture and take the final responsibility for the outcomes. Indian wisdom states that leaders have to comprehend their own inner dynamics in relationship to power, to enable others whom they influence to feel empowered. Coaching is an effective way of firstly enabling the leader to explore and understand their own unique capacities, and secondly as a way of helping the leader learn to ignite the potential of others.
The Coach Training Programme jointly offered by Center for Consciousness Studies & Inner Transformation (CCSIT) and Academy of Human Resource Development (AHRD) is based on a judicious blend of Indic wisdom drawn from the great epic of Mahabharat and principles and practices arising from Patanjali Yoga Sutras with contemporary research in the field of coaching. It is founded on the tenets that a Yogi is capable of being:
It is offered in two parts:
An overview of the programme
Leaders are heroes who take responsibility for their context and their people. Being fluent in all aspects of power and knowing how to deploy them, is crucial in navigating an organization in the emerging world where sustainability and profound interdependency is the key to organizational excellence.
The Mahābhārata, one of the most ancient and richest Indic texts, enquires deeply into Leadership, Dharmā and the five types of Power through the framework of the Pāndava as heroes. Understanding how each of us is uniquely gifted with the 5 types of power, namely, the power of structure, passion, compassion, innovation and contextual intelligence, can be of great insight and of practical use for us to unleash our heroic potential.
The Yoga śāstrās provide us with the key component of inner growth and transformation, i.e., practices that enable one to discover their deepest potential, bring inner coherence and nurture the being. Yoga śāstrās helps in understanding one’s psycho-somatic, psycho-social and psycho- spiritual processes and imparts the methods of aligning those processes that in turn energises the outer deployment of power.
Module I – Coaching fundamentals and harnessing the Universe of Powers
Power is a double-edged sword. It can be used in the ways that are constructive and dhārmic or in ways that are destructive and not dhārmic. The Mahābhārata examines power in all its nuances through archetypal stories. It presents five types of power personified by the five Pāndava brothers and through its many stories, it speaks about how each Pāndava explored all the facets of the power they are gifted with till they become the best they can be. They make mistakes, they get derailed by the shadow sides of these gifts, and they encounter the shadow fully, to emerge as impeccable human beings and heroic warriors. Through a clever juxtaposition of the behaviours of the Kauravas, Mahābhārata explicates what happens when one is endowed with gifts but is driven by egoistic compulsions resulting in a massive destruction.
Leadership positions legitimise the use of power. It is for us to move from a stage of being unconscious of our true potential and competencies to become conscious and mindful in the way we deploy them. We then become the best that we can be. Enabling a person to awaken to their true potential and learn how to use them is enhanced through coaching. Coaching is an art. One can learn the fundamentals of good coaching and build one’s own style over time. The Facilitators of Module 1 will model the behaviours of a good coach and will teach the basics through theory and practice sessions
Module II – Tuning one’s psyche with Saptaswara Practices to enhance Coaching Presence
Yogic wisdom has looked at an individual in a holistic manner. It has devised a psycho- somatic, psycho-social and psycho-spiritual lens to comprehend the inner processes of a person engaged in an encounter with the world. This enables one to understand and develop a measure of inner control and to alter habitual and limiting patterns of behaviour through various practices. In this Module, the participants will be initiated on seven keynote practices termed Sapta Swarās derived from Yogic Wisdom, namely, Dharma, Maitri, Karma, Jñana, Ramyam, Yoga and Abhyāsa. These when practised in unison help dissolve the constraining aspects present in one’s inner psyche. This in turn enables the awakening of innate potential hitherto untapped.
Understanding of these principles and following the practices arising from the Yogic wisdom can awaken the inner potential and kindle deeper compassion. This module is aimed at enhancing the connectedness of aspiring coaches towards their protégé or coachees. Continued practice over a period of time will foster the integration of all forms of power and will leads to sustained levels of inner harmony among the coaches. In the process, their coaching presence gets enhanced. At a broader level, a coach anchored in Yogic wisdom becomes capable of staying true to one’s dhārmic core and unfolding with boundless potential of self and their coachees..
