Leadership of tomorrow:
"Coach Like Leadership" at Microsoft


Mariano Carro Arrubuarrena, a visionary leader at Microsoft, spearheads the Leadership Employee Enablement Community (LEEC), a group dedicated to nurturing leadership qualities among its 7,000+ members across various roles and regions. Recognizing the evolving landscape of leadership within the tech industry, Mariano sought to equip his community with innovative leadership skills that mirror the dynamism and complexity of the modern workplace. This ambition led to the collaboration with our coaching agency to design and deliver a bespoke workshop titled "Coach-Like Leadership: The Future of Leadership Traits," facilitated by our esteemed coach, Marvin Gruensfelder.


The workshop was an overwhelming success, attended by 281 members from diverse backgrounds, including managers, leaders, executives, consultants, and account teams from multiple countries worldwide. The session focused on distinguishing coaching from mentoring and training, emphasizing the authentic relationship dynamics in coaching, understanding the essence of a coach's role, and providing a concise, informative overview of coaching principles. Marvin's delivery was lauded for its clarity, thoroughness, and engaging presentation style, achieving an exceptional average rating of 4.9 out of 5 stars.


The feedback from the LEEC members was profoundly positive, highlighting several impactful aspects of the workshop:
+ A new perspective on coaching versus mentoring and training, enhancing their understanding of effective leadership.

+ Clarity on the principles of coaching, including what coaching is and is not, equipping leaders with the knowledge to adopt coach-like leadership traits.Appreciation for the nuanced explanation of coaching, helping leaders recognize the difference between solving people-related challenges versus technical problems.

+ The introduction of practical tools, such as the "7 questions" framework, enabling leaders to apply coaching techniques immediately in their roles.

The workshop not only enriched the participants' understanding of coach-like leadership but also inspired them to integrate these insights into their daily interactions, fostering a culture of empowerment, self-discovery, and collaborative problem-solving within Microsoft.
