Coaching is an ideal way to support individuals in putting management and leadership theory into practice.   A coach provides a confidential sounding board to work on issues typically facing managers – particularly in times of change and when newly promoted:

  • Time effectiveness and delegation
  • Communication and resolving conflict
  • Providing direction and motivating the team – particularly important in times of change
  • Managing the performance of people and delivery
A coaching session can best be described as a conversation with a purpose – focusing on a particular objective or outcome, exploring the reality, surfacing options for moving forward and then prompting agreement to action.  While the usual coaching techniques of questioning, listening, reflecting and challenging are vital, where relevant a coach can introduce or remind the manager of a variety of effective management tools and models.  These act as a prompt for discussion about their application in particular circumstances.

 Individuals gain benefits such as: 

  • Sense of empowerment and accountability to take the actions needed to achieve goals – leading to improved effectiveness and productivity.
  • A feeling of being supported and having an objective ‘sounding board’ for ideas – building confidence and self-esteem.  
  • Deeper understanding of own operating style, strengths and values.  
  • Fewer limiting beliefs and consequently fewer barriers to achieving their potential.
  • Reduced stress levels and improved work-life balance.
  • Improved relationships and better communication skills.
An organisation can benefit from:

  • A more goal-orientated and positive culture of development and growth.
  • Improved leadership and direction, management of people and communication.
  • Better business performance driven by increased effectiveness of individuals and teams who are able to identify and manage priorities and achieve greater productivity.
  • Reduced conflict in the workplace through improved understanding of others and increased ability to manage emotions.
  • Higher motivation in those receiving coaching as they increase their self-awareness and build their self-esteem.
