Effective leaders have the capacity to reflect and learn on an ongoing basis. Coaching provides a structured place to develop that capacity, with input and feedback from a trained, experienced and neutral party. Coaching is a way for talented leaders to continue developing their leadership skills while also identifying how to achieve specific goals.
Examples of when coaching is helpful:
- When a successful professional moves from being an individual contributor to a supervisory/management position.
- When a senior manager wants to increase his/her effectiveness motivating and leading a diverse and multicultural team.
- When a new executive director joins a well-established organization and wants opportunities to reflect and strategize during the transition.
