My recent purchase of Diane Foster’s Skill Kit for Leaders, has accelerated my go-to-market status and personal momentum. The importance of having ready access to a wealth of competency -building materials relevant for today’s leaders cannot be understated. My confidence level and motivation has soared for working with mid-level managers using the SKL materials. Using the Skill Kit for Leaders has propelled both me and my business!
The System (for Developing Leadership Competency) is solid!
Diane Foster’s Skill Kit for Leaders program(SKL) prepares coaches to deliver a high end coaching experience to C-Suite and Executive level leaders.
This is a very rich resource and a MUST HAVE for any coach working with leaders on their development, but especially those working to develop leadership in the C-Suite.
I went to an executive workshop at Haas titled “Leader as Coach”. It was taught by a PhD along with his team. Honestly, your Skill Kit for Leaders is much more useful than what I learned from the workshop. The tool kit provides hands-on tools that can be used in so many areas. I don’t think it is being recognized for the great value it provides. I remember when I was stuck, couldn’t think of where to even start, I started poking around the Skill Kit and I found thinks that got me rolling to where I needed to go! Thank you!
The Skill Kit for Leaders, by Diane Foster is one of the best collections of tools and activities I have seen for developing leadership. The 8 leadership roles and 34 skills to develop them, creates a treasure chest of gems sure to improve leadership at all levels.
Can I share the resources you gave me on Listening and Communication from the Skill Kit with another Director who doesn’t have you as a coach? He really needs them too.
The Skill Kit for Leaders is packed with information and resources that leaders can use to understand and develop the skills and behaviors they need to succeed in our fast-paced and upwardly mobile world. I particularly like that it is all there – detailed, accurate, and laid out for me to use rather than invent. I spend my time working with my leaders – not doing the research and creating all of the materials. Saves me lots of time and energy. Most of all, the SKL helps me help leaders faster and with really good content.
I love the practicality of the “Skill Kit for Leaders” that you have developed for “real time” integration. You suggest tangible activities that a Manager/Leader can use immediately with their staff and you provide a wealth of resource materials — available through books and workshops and on the Internet, as well as videos on particular business topics. I especially like the format because it is clear and makes the resources easy to access.
I was extremely impressed with the way the program was designed, and the way you implemented it. I now know well what my priorities are, and how to go after them.
