The Benefits of Leadership Coaching

Apr 13, 2020 | Coaching, Wellbeing

I’m often asked about the work I do, what’s the point, what are the benefits of leadership coaching?

What Are the Benefits of Leadership Coaching?

Coaching can help you move forward in your life, career or business. There may be times when you feel a little stuck, or perhaps you want to grow your business, progress through your career and you feel you need some help and support with that.

Careful support, guidance and questioning can help you begin to see your situations differently and help you put different actions and responses in place. Sometimes other people can help you see things more easily instead of having stuff rolling round in your head. That way you can reach your goals more easily.

What type of coaching is suitable for me?

There’s lots of different types of coaching. Executive coaching, leadership coaching, mindset coaching, life coaching, business coaching, sales coaches, sports coaching. The thing is you need to consider WHAT you want the coaching for. WHY you think you need it and WHERE you want it take you. This will narrow things down for you.

When you’ve figured that out, you can begin to investigate different coaches. Now, there are some coaches who simply teach and guide you their model – what worked for them. In essence, that’s mentoring rather than coaching. There are other coaches who help you to see the benefits of leadership coaching, they look at you, your business, your struggles, your goals and help you figure out what will work for you (that’s me)!

The only caveat on this is that if you’re thinking of looking for a mindset coach to help you with your fears, your worries, the pressure or overwhelm, make sure you get someone who knows what they’re doing. You don’t want just anyone messing with what’s inside your head! My therapeutic background means I know about psychology, neuroscience, trauma and can help you in this area if the need arises.

Why should I bother with leadership coaching?

I work with business leaders and entrepreneurs and the common thing they say to me is about having no-one to talk to; to bounce thoughts and ideas off.  The benefits of leadership coaching are evident if you’re at the top of your company, managing staff and there’s a pressure to ‘cope’ or to continue the success. If you’re the entrepreneur, often working alone at home, there’s similar pressure to ‘cope’, be a success in your own business and do this with no team around you. This is where leadership coaching can be really beneficial.

Leadership coaching gives you a confidential and non-judgmental space for problem solving support and offloading to help you reach your goals and desires. This will benefit you and your career, business or family.

How long would I need leadership coaching for?

That very much depends on what you want to get out of coaching. There are different ways of working and different packages to meet your needs. I have 3 main packages the support the leadership coaching I offer, although there are always options to tailor our work to fit your needs.

1.    A half day intensive where we can work on something and get you moving forwards. 

2.    Short Coaching of 5 sessions lasting about 75 minutes taking place weekly or fortnightly.

3.    A 3 month package to create a deep transformation in you across all areas of your life.

Some people might sign up for 6 months or an annual package of coaching. There are also group coaching sessions, often called Masterminds, and I’ve got plans for those too.

What’s Included in My Leadership Coaching Package?

To enable us to get the best out of our time together in the leadership coaching, I include

  • An online in-depth questionnaire. This helps you think about what you want to achieve and we can both get clarity on your situation, your goals and desires.
  • Online video calls which are recorded so that you can refer back to them if you need to
  • Unlimited email connection between sessions so you can reach out if you need to.
  • Tools and resources that I think are appropriate or helpful for you to get the best out of work together.

Why should I choose you for my leadership coaching?

Whilst I appreciate there are a multitude of coaches out there, my 20+ years of corporate life running Directors offices mean I was the one person right behind the Directors and leaders at C Suite level and above. I kept them right, I sorted the staff, I supported the business and transformations. With our leadership coaching, I am that person that has got your back too! 

Add to that my knowledge and training of psychology, neuroscience, attachment, trauma and hypnotherapy means I really do know what makes you tick and what makes other people tick too! I help you with understanding about why we do what we do, how to react and respond in a way that suits you and fits with your goals and your lifestyle.

We can add in a sprinkle of business, strategy, tools and techniques, all of which are personalised for you. Together, we can figure out how you can cope best with your life, your business, your career, so you can get where you want to go.

I hope all that is helpful for you if you’re making decisions about the benefits of leadership coaching and whether or not you should hire a coach and what to look for.
