An Overview of Executive & Leadership Coaching

with Certified Master Coach

Rebecca Cooley

 

There is not a business that can succeed if executive and leadership coaching is not a part of the master plan. Molding employees into future leaders is critical to the success of any business. In short, the process of leadership coaching is an immersive teaching experience. 

 

Leadership coaching began as a way to retrain a business's struggling managers. Since then, it has grown into a way for businesses to help improve their leaders' performances even if it is already satisfactory. This can apply to employees at various levels within a business, even to the level of executive coaching.

 

It has been proven that leadership coaching enhances a business's chances of success. In fact, estimates state more than 60% of all Fortune 500 company leaders can attribute at least some of their success to working with a personal coach. 

 

The reason for this is that while business schools teach people the skills necessary to do their jobs, it takes face-to-face time with a coach to master the art of personal communication between individuals. 

The Purposes of Executive & Leadership Coaching

 

There are several purposes of leadership coaching. While the most obvious purpose is to help a business grow, others are just as important. Another purpose is to give business leaders the tools they need in order to better brand and market their company. The third purpose is to take less experienced employees and prepare them to assume a leadership role in the future through personal development, teaching, and building up confidence.

 

Common Executive & Leadership Coaching Methods

 

There are some common methods used in leadership coaching. One of them is listening. Another is helping you find ways to solve business problems diplomatically. Another is helping you learn to avoid any obstacles that could hinder future performances. These leadership skills, and many more, come together to reinforce your abilities as a manager, leader, and contributor to the success of your business.

 

Making goals and implementing a strategy to achieve them is also an important part of being a leader. It often involves delegating a task to be completed or a goal to be met before the next coaching lesson. In this way, you get hands-on experience learning how to act as a leader. 

 

These experiences will often serve to move you away from your comfort zone. This is considered one of the most important steps in teaching the necessary skills to assume leadership.
