Leadership Coaching

Leadership Coaching

Want to enhance your effectiveness as a leader?

Leadership Coaching is an opportunity for you to define your current skills and enhance your leadership ability.   The Leadership Coaches partner with student leaders in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and leadership potential.  The coach's responsibility is to:

  • Discover, clarify, and align with what the student wants to achieve
  • Encourage self-discovery
  • Elicit client-generated solutions and strategies
  • Hold the client responsible and accountable

This process helps students dramatically improve their outlook on work and life, while improving their leadership skills and unlocking their potential.


Leadership can take place in the classroom, in campus clubs and organizations, in the community or in the workplace. Any ASU student who is currently in a leadership role or is interested in enhancing their leadership abilities is eligible!

Testimonials from Student Participants

"Leadership coaching is an opportunity unlike any other. If you're looking to grow as both a leader and an individual, you're provided a 1-on-1 mentor that meets with you throughout the year. It's not time invasive, because meetings typically are only every other week for about an hour. Working through both your successes and failures, your mentor is able to ask questions that you may not think of yourself. Ultimately, these questions and meetings help you as an individual gain a better understanding of your leadership style as well as your true goals."


"I would describe leadership coaching as one of the most valuable experiences that I have ever had. I was not sure how much of a benefit the program would be when I first started, and I never noticed any changes along the way. However, to see where I am at now compared to where I was 5 months ago... the change amazes me. I never saw the importance of leadership or the skills that came along with being a leader but after Leadership Coaching, it not only helped me to develop as a leader but as a person as well.  It was definitely one of the best experiences I have ever had and I am excited about continuing the process."


"This experience helps you understand yourself and see what potential you have.  Leadership Coaching has helped me look deeper inside myself to see how beautiful of a person I am."

I'm not sure leadership coaching is for me.  Can I just try it out?

Yes, all students are welcome to do one trial coaching session with no commitment.  If you enjoy your first session, we'll arrange a time to continue the coaching relationship.
