All leaders face moments when the talents and capacities that made them successful in the past are no longer adequate. Taking on a new or more senior role, managing a new initiative and leading change in the organization all require growth in new directions. Often this calls for both new skills and new ways of thinking.
Through a one-on-one, confidential relationship with an experienced and supportive leadership expert, executives build awareness of their strengths & weaknesses and develop new strategies, perspectives and skills so they can tackle challenges that they have not faced before. Coaching provides a rare and valuable opportunity for leaders to gain fresh insights and explore new ways of thinking & acting that will take them to the next level of performance.
Ideally, leaders become leaders because they have credibility, and because people want to follow them. Using this definition, it becomes clear that leadership skills can be applied to any situation where you are required to take the lead, professionally, socially, and at home in family settings.
