Leadership Training

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) announce a new  5-year agency-wide executive coaching program.
With the launch of the first agency-wide executive coaching program in 2004, NASA placed itself at the forefront of a growing awareness by public and private organizations of the value and impact of executive coaching as a vehicle for accelerating the development of leaders and high-potentials. Its commitment to the process of coaching as a model of change and learning demonstrates the continued recognition by the agencies officials of coaching's strategic importance to their long-term mission success.

In her recent testimony before Congress, Toni Dawsey, NASA's Assistant Administrator for Human Capital Management, said, "In order to build leadership 'bench strength,' we have developed a corporate, integrated approach to leadership development." She continued, "This framework provides continuity through succession planning and executive development - creating a skilled pipeline for leadership within NASA. Executive coaching is the key component of that framework. "NASA, like other organizations faces leadership challenges, including accelerating the development of new leaders, coping with a globalizing workforce and competitive landscape, and adapting to the accelerating pace of change, is looking to find better ways to face these challenges. Executive coaching is also a key component in its strategy to do so." -Business Wire 2009
