In today’s global business environment scholars and business people are building a greater appreciation for the importance of leadership and emotional competence. The Faculty of Leadership And Coaching recognizes the importance of personal mastery and its role within the organization. It is impossible to be an effective leader and coach of others without having personal knowledge and understanding. The Faculty of Leadership and Coaching builds on this simple adage by combining courses on leadership, personal mastery, psychology and coaching to enable the candidate to explore the boundaries of the self and its interaction with others. If this focus reflects your own orientation then we encourage you to apply to the Faculty of Leadership and Coaching and push yourself towards increased personal awareness and effectiveness.
A Focus On Congruency
The path to personal and systemic congruence is a path one follows throughout life. Monarch Business School sets the candidate on this personal journey. Dysfunction in an organizational setting may occur at many times and places due to increasing pressures and low-trust. Understanding the values and beliefs important to yourself and your organization is critical to having an impact on your surroundings and alleviating dysfunction. The Faculty of Leadership and Coaching develops the candidate so that they may build functional strategies through a step-by-step approach in order to embrace challenges and become congruent. Ultimately, the goal is to create both a congruent person and congruent organizational setting. The defining characteristics of the Faculty of Leadership and Coaching are:

The central focus of all programs is an adherence to ethical behavior. This is even more apparent in the Faculty of Leadership and Coaching where personally held beliefs and values drive the curriculum. Candidates are expected to examine their belief sets with a focus on ethics and governance at every turn.
Culture & Community
Organizations and businesses are given their mandate to operate from society. Businesses must therefore maintain a strong orientation toward all stakeholders. Monarch expands the field of stakeholders to include all community members often omitted in the discourse and brings them to the forefront of discussion and consideration.
Sustainable business means not only maintaining the environment and the commons for future generations. It means reinventing the very way business is transacted keeping a people-centric orientation. Sustainable leadership is key to creating the type of organization that supports personal development and a learning-centric environment.
Everyone is an individual and each individual has their own set of personally held beliefs and values. These beliefs and values may come into conflict with those of the organization. Personal mastery is the key to mediating this conflict and moving forward in a congruent manner. Monarch develops the necessary skills to enable candidates to lead this change process either in themselves or with others.
