What Is Leadership Coaching?

 Leadership Coaching is progressing through a tailored framework with the assistance of a coach to help people in leadership roles achieve a goal and become a more effective leader. The coach’s role is to help identify and support overcoming the obstacles that stand in the way of the leader in attaining those goals.

Who Is Coaching For?

Executives, Management, and Sales Professionals that wish to be more effective in motivating their team and connecting with them on a deeper level. It helps the leader to develop trust among team members and create an emotionally centered work environment.

What is The Process Like?

Transformative. First and foremost, we’ll uncover the true obstacle(s). We do that by asking questions. Once we find out the challenges we set up a time to meet weekly, or monthly depending on how fast you want to achieve results. We walk through a framework of discovery and reflection to determine what steps are necessary to achieve your goal. We create a plan that you’ll implement immediately after each meeting. Most importantly, you can’t improve what you don’t measure. We’ll set goals, milestones and I’ll hold you accountable.

1. Assessing the Situation
When starting the coaching process, it is crucial to go into each session with a clear understanding of the leader’s concerns and the things that seem to be blocking forward progress. As an executive coach, the first in-depth discussions revolve around assessing where the leader is right now – what is their current situation? Additionally, as the coach, I have a responsibility to establish a coaching agreement with the executive. This document demonstrates what is required for a successful coaching interaction with the client and gives the client a chance to agree to the pre-determined coaching process.
2. Forming the Coaching Relationship
The next step in the coaching relationship is to create a comfort level between the client and the coach. As an executive coach, I create a safe and supportive environment in which coaching will occur. It is my responsibility to create an atmosphere of respect and trust within the coaching relationship. The only way for coaching to be productive and successful is to create the foundation for open and honest dialogue. With that in mind, this step must be firmly in place before any forward progress can begin.
3. The Coach’s Role
In addition to creating a comfort level for the coachee, as a coach I have several other responsibilities. First and foremost, I must be present within each session. This means that I am fully aware, but am also open to the spontaneity of the dialogue while being open and flexible. Additionally, I should be active in my role as a listener. In order to support the leaders in which I coach, I must not only listen to what they say, but also hear them. And, I must take cues from what they are not saying to create meaning and context within the coaching conversation.

Another important part of my job as the coach is to ask questions the evoke change within the client. It is important to remember that am not there to solve problems for the client, but rather to ask the questions that will help them uncover the solutions they require. Finally, I must be able to communicate clearly and concisely with the coachee. This means that I carefully choose the words, questions and statements I use, and always consider if they will be valuable to the client as they work towards reaching their coaching goals.

4. Working the Plan
As an executive coach specializing in leadership development, my role is to listen and observe and create a coaching strategy to meet the client’s needs and the organizations needs. It is important to remember that the solutions and strategies that are developed are elicited from the client. My role is to provide support to enhance the skills, resources and creativity that the client already has. Combining the pure coaching with NLP tools and techniques offers the client options to shift and change ways of viewing their leadership style, as well as new styles of communicating with team members and other leaders. While I provide an objective perspective, the client is ultimately responsible for taking the steps to produce the results he or she desires in line with the required results their organization wishes to achieve.

Flexibility is a crucial component in a coaching relationship. In an ideal world, the pre-determined plan will always provide the perfect solution to equip the leader in their role. However, because we live in a world of constant change, it is important to adapt as situations change. Because of this, the final step in the coaching process requires the assessment of the current plan to realistically determine if the path is still the most effective route to reach the desired results. If the answer is “no” the process must adapt to meet the current needs or situation.

In the end, each coaching partnership is unique based on the specific needs of the individual involved in the coaching conversation.
