S2 Ep 4: Coaching, mentoring and remote leadership, with Dr. Carolina Kleebaur

How diverse is the coaching space? How does coaching differ from mentoring and sponsoring? In the Future of Work, what is critical for remote leadership?

In S2 Ep 4 of “The Digitalization & Diversity” podcast , I had the pleasure to welcome Dr. Carolina Kleebaur, an executive coach, leadership trainer and top management advisor to dig deeper into the topic of coaching and remote leadership. During this episode, Carolina demystified many buzzwords used in the context of coaching – “leadership coaching”, “mindfulness coaching”, “success coaching”, “life coaching”, “systemic business coaching” and more. She also explained the concepts of mentoring and sponsoring and how she approaches coaching clients with diverse backgrounds, diverse ways of thinking and different personalities. 

We discussed deeper into the key struggles female managers and leaders in particular seek coaching for, and what is particularly important for remote leadership in the “Future of Work’.
