Coaching for leaders

DLI Coaching

We offer intensive one to one coaching for disability leaders at all levels, from getting started to experienced.

The DLI is home to many incredible disability leaders, across a wide range of fields. Drawing on this expertise we have now established the DLI Coaching Panel to expand our existing coaching resources to meet demand.

The DLI Coaching Panel covers numerous coaching areas, including:

  • Leadership
  • Career
  • Recruitment
  • Wellbeing
  • Media
  • Governance
  • Executive coaching

The DLI Coaching Panel are all members of the DLI and are all disabled people. To arrange for a coaching package, or leadership assessment and coaching package, please complete the coaching expression of interest form (below).

Our coaching clients range from emerging leaders to CEOs.

“I’ve had coaching before, but it is very different being coached by a disabled person, someone who really understands what I’m talking about. I can really dig deeper here.”

The Disability Leadership Institute uses the Global Leadership Profile to support our coaching work. Our CEO, and Director of Coaching, Christina Ryan is a certified GLP debrief coach.

Coaching is also available for people working with disability leaders who want to improve their practice and achieve more inclusive outcomes.

Coaching is fully confidential.

We will assist you to design the most appropriate coaching package for your needs, some examples are:

  • a coaching package incorporating several coaching sessions and a plan for action, including Disability Leadership Institute premium membership. Each package is individually designed to meet your needs.
  • regular coaching for newly placed leaders. Have you just been appointed to a senior position for the first time? We can help you make it a success!
  • assessment + coaching – a Global Leadership Profile leadership assessment followed by 4 or 6 coaching sessions.

Express interest in coaching today by using the form below and we will contact you to discuss your needs. Note: our coaching program is in high demand. While we work to support you immediately, there may be a short delay before your first session.

The DLI invoices coaching clients for payment prior to your coaching program.
