One-on-One Leadership Coaching for GT Students

Leading Edge (One-on-One Leadership Coaching) is a leadership development experience for undergraduate and graduate students at Georgia Tech where participants work with a leadership coach to intentionally explore and grow their leadership skills.  Leadership happens everywhere and one does not have to be in a leadership role to be a leader. Many successful organizations offer leadership coaching to their high-potential employees. It is a top tool for leadership development because it focuses leaders (like you), allowing them to achieve improved results while also allowing them to be more efficient in their work. Georgia Tech has invested in adapting the real-world practices and approaches of executive leadership coaching to meet the needs of Georgia Tech students while also preparing them for the leadership roles they will have at Tech and beyond.




Work with a personal leadership coach

Once selected to participate in Leading Edge, you will be matched with a personal leadership coach. You and your coach will work together for 5-6 one-hour sessions over an entire semester to build your leadership skills and discover more about leadership.

Challenge yourself to be a better leader

You will create an accurate picture of your leadership potential through self-evaluation and feedback from others. Together with your coach, you will design and conduct leadership experiments that put your new skills into action and grow your leadership capacity.

Develop your leadership vision

Once you have had an opportunity to assess and practice these new skills and behaviors, you will take your new insights and create a compelling vision for your leadership future.
