Coaching can help executives make the successful transition from manager to leader. What does it mean to be a leader? It means having trusting, loyal, inspired, and passionate followers, whom you encourage, motivate and inspire to achieve personal, group and organizational goals.
It helps the coaching client build a greater sense of teamwork among their followers, driving improved results.
Coaching empowers the executive to step up to the most important part of their jobs, and prepare themselves for the next step in their careers. Coaching can also provide guidance on how to easily and effectively delegate assignments, shifting focus on how a leader can bring greater value to the organization and their team.
Other benefits of coaching include:
- Helping executives identify and remove the blocks to their desired achievements, outcomes and success.
- Supporting the client in creating practical action plans and timetables for goal achievement.
- Assisting executives and managers become more effective at leading Up (the CEO or other “Bosses”), Across (Peers), and Down (Those they supervise, whether internal or external).
Perhaps, most important, coaching can empower the coaching client to design and build a legacy of leadership.
