    • The Leadership Development Coaching Circles are facilitated in small groups (8 – 12 participants) for a longer period of time (8-10 sessions / 2 hours each). The goal is to provide a space for peer, action-oriented coaching for leadership development and acquire knowledge and skills based on Rice’s leadership competencies.

    Additional outcomes anticipated include:

    • developing awareness pertaining to potential leadership blind spots and/or career-limiting behavior,
    • increasing accountability for self-development,
    • expanding leadership capacity at Rice by offering another component to current leadership development options,
    • building peer connections across schools/divisions through peer learning and collaboration, and
    • discussing common leadership challenges and sharing ideas and real-work examples to address those challenges.
