Leadership coaching focuses on making positive progress of leaders in leadership roles that directly impact the company or organization and those they lead. Unlike Executive Coaching, Leadership Coaching helps mid-level, middle managers or front-line staff improve their effectiveness and overcome their specific challenges arising within the current work environment. The approach toward leadership coaching provides leaders with individual attention, support, and feedback to help them make continuous improvements and adjustments through consistent feedback. Our Leadership Coaching program helps high potential leaders achieve results through developing critical leadership skills and improving teamwork dynamics to prepare them for future executive roles.
Leadership Coaching provides a valuable space for professional and personal development. For example, many mid-level managers frequently report struggling with low confidence and employee collaboration. The traditional approach to this problem would have upper management send these leaders to some seminar or training on the specific subject to solve this problem. Unfortunately, many times these are short-term solutions that don’t address the underlining problem. In time, most leaders fall back to the old habits, never adopting permanent and sustainable change. Although external behavior may change, it needs to be supported by changes in their internal thought processes. Leadership Coaching is the solution for sustainable success.
According to a 2009 International Coach Federation Global Coaching Study, the benefits of coaching are many; 80% of people who receive coaching report increased self-confidence, and over 70% benefit from improved work performance, relationships, and more effective communication skills. 86% of companies report that they recouped their investment in coaching and more. Furthermore, a similar study by the ICF said that the median company return was reported to be 700%. Almost one-fifth of respondents reported an ROI of at least 50 times (5000%) the initial investment.

According to an article by the Institute of Coaching (McLean – Affiliate of Harvard Medical School), in the past few years a number of studies have been conducted that clearly demonstrate the value, efficacy, and impact of coaching in a number of contexts. For more information, please see the following articles on the specific benefits of leadership coaching, health and wellness coaching.
Like our Executive and Career Coaching programs, our Leadership Coaching program focuses on the individual leader’s needs, support, and feedback aimed at helping to improve their current levels of performance. Leadership Coaching begins with an initial audit of the leader to identify strengths and opportunities for development. This first step provides a leader and stakeholder team with the feedback necessary to establish progress benchmarks and goals. The audit offers leaders insights into where they excel and where they can improve. Typically, this process helps reinforce positive performance and contributions while also revealing areas needed for improvement. The goal is for the leader and stakeholders involved to set the goals and objectives for those areas of improvement and for the coach to help them discover how to be successful. All coaching sessions focus on progressive steps forward and accountability for leader action items the leader sets for themselves.
