Corporate Services – Executive and Leadership Coaching
It often truly is “lonely at the top”. Frequently the most successful, powerful leaders do not have a trusted confidant. Someone they can rely on to hear their concerns and give honest, intelligent feedback. A skilled Business coach can provide the support you need to enable you to be even more confident in your leadership role.
In order to build trust and inspire confidence, successful leaders must be able to be respectful and strategic in the way they share information. A strong Business Coach can support executives as they improve their interpersonal skills and effectively develop themselves and mentor their staff.
Highly competent employees are often promoted to management positions. Whether as a reward for excellent performance, or the result of downsizing, people unfamiliar with leadership and management skills often step up to a supervisory role. Frequently there isn’t time or funding for these employees to receive enough in-depth management training to enable them to be successful in the new position. This leaves a large number of those in leadership positions with few skills in the area of people management.
A knowledgeable Business Coach can help managers perfect the skills necessary to be an effective leader. The Coach will guide them as they learn the difference between being part of the team and leading, and assist them as they improve skills such as the ability to listen and communicate, resolve conflict, lead by example, delegate, build a team, run a meeting and motivate others.
Often an employee may have many strengths that make him/her a valuable employee, and a few behaviors that interfere with his/her ability to be a successful team member. If these behaviors, such as poor communication skills, are negatively impacting the rest of the team, working with a Coach could be the answer.
