Leadership Coach Wendy McManus Announces Changes to Group Program and Unveils New Credentials
ORLANDO, FL - Wendy McManus’ flagship group leadership development program is currently in progress for the third time. However, Lean into Leadership will be facing a rebrand next year as McManus is looking to elevate and re-vamp her leadership development program for produce industry professionals. Early next year, the new Thriving Leaders Project will benefit from these changes and also benefit leaders in the industry, now being offered to both men and women in the new co-ed program.
“Having offered Lean into Leadership several times for women only, I’ve heard the calls to make it a co-ed program,” said McManus. “Both men and women in the industry have encouraged me to embrace this new model for supporting leadership development amongst produce professionals.”
According to the press release, men and women from all sectors of the produce industry will dig deep to work on the inner game of personal leadership and the outer game of leading others. The re-evaluated efforts not only came from voices in the industry, but also from McManus having completed a rigorous training program. McManus completed an 18-month coach training certification program with The Coaches Training Institute (CTI), a highly respected organization that has trained coaches across the globe for the past 25 years.
The program included more than 200 hours of training and resulted in McManus earning her Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC) designation. McManus’ efforts have culminated in over 300 hours of one-on-one coaching. Based on these milestones, she now holds an Associated Certified Coach (ACC) credential from the International Coach Federation, an organization dedicated to upholding high standards for training, ethics, and delivery in the coaching profession.
“As a life-long learner, I’m always looking to the next opportunity to immerse myself in additional training. I’m on a journey toward coaching mastery, and for me that path includes learning and coaching as much as I possibly can,” McManus continued. “The best way to get really good at coaching is to coach and coach and coach some more, so that’s what I’m doing.”
McManus will be at PMA Fresh Summit in Anaheim, California, this year and looks forward to meeting with industry members interested in learning more about one-on-one coaching or the Thriving Leaders Project. Sounds like PMA is shaping up to truly be a can’t-miss event. For more news in the weeks leading up to PMA, keep reading ANUK.
