Leadership Coaching

Is a way for leaders to access the support and challenge they need. It is an excellent tool for leadership development, and is increasingly recognised as improving both leadership and organisational performance:

  • It can give leaders a safe and confidential space to access support, challenge and reflection, as well as actions for development
  • It can allow leaders to gain clarity about who they are, what they are doing, why they are doing it, where they want to go and what they want to change
  • It can unlock self-awareness, capability and confidence
  • It can improve communication and inter-personal skills
  • It can help with conflict resolution
  • It can lead to high levels of motivation and drive
  • It can help with meeting, interview and presentation preparation and performance
  • It can support leaders to identify and access their own resources to effect a positive change that benefits them, their organisation or both
  • It can help align the leader’s interpersonal, leadership and strategic skills with the organisation’s vision or brand
  • It can provide  neutral and non-judgemental feedback to leaders, free from office or organisational politics


THE COACHING RELATIONSHIP IS THREEWAY



“[coaching leads to] improvements in communication and interpersonal skills, leadership and management, conflict resolution, personal confidence, attitudes and motivation, management performance as well as preparation for a new role or promotion and, on occasions, combating aggressive behaviour.”  ILM, Creating a Coaching Culture

“Good coaching is about achieving a high-performance culture, about focusing on the strengths of a team or individual – the assets that enable peak performance. It is about challenging people to challenge themselves and helping them to realise how great they can be.”  ILM, website,  Coaching for Business

“Benefits can include increased self-awareness, motivation and enthusiasm, better work prioritisation, improved confidence and better team management. Sometimes it is even possible to link such personal and behavioural benefits directly to specific advantages for the organisation, whether it be increasing revenue, reducing costs, hitting targets or achieving the business plan.” Allen, P, Coaching and the Future, In View (journal from the NHS Institute for senior leaders)
