Leadership Coaching

With increased responsibility comes increased stress often through additional 'management requirements', supporting and leading a team of people, looking ahead at what can be done differently and how to meet the inevitable targets.
Service Description

As we progress through life and up the corporate ladder, things can seem a little more challenging than we anticipated. With increased responsibility comes increased stress often through additional ‘management requirements’, supporting and leading a team of people, looking ahead at what can be done differently and how to meet the inevitable targets.

It shouldn’t all be bad… And it needn’t be but, there is a change in mindset and approach required. You go from being really good at ‘the task / role / job’ to becoming a newbie / student and supporting others doing what you have left behind. You still have your family life to balance and now you are expected to be the perfect role model and leader.

If you are one of the lucky ones, your company is providing leadership training and possibly a mentor from within your peers. That is great and you can learn and grow.

However, there are times when you might not want to share some of your inner fears and doubts, frustrations and concerns. I’m pretty sure you will be supported and encouraged but this isn’t always the case. And, even if you are supported, taking that leap-of-faith can be really daunting.

I like to work with leaders and see them grow into inspiring, healthy and happy individuals that provide real value to the company, work cohesively as a strong team, and develop teams that are not only high performing but motivated and engaged. A real win:win:win for the individual, the company and the colleagues.

Options to support you, your company and your team include:

Personal coaching and / or mentoring – specific support for the new leader, or anyone facing a really challenging time in their life.

Leadership team coaching – a series of regular group sessions focusing on developing understanding and cohesiveness as a team. The goals of the company being the common objective. Interspersed with group ‘check-in’ calls to maintain momentum and clarity. Intermittent personal sessions for those specific personal issues.

Group coaching for teams experiencing change – establishing the team direction, support and cohesive focus while clearly demonstrating the value of each team member and the importance of, and respect for, the leadership role.

I have created some specific programs in addition to the above:

  • So You’re Now A Leader – What Does That Mean?
  • Group coaching for teams experiencing significant change
