Today’s business environment is requiring a new level of leadership competency. The critical forces that are shaping leadership competencies are: globalization, information technology, a need for flexibility and accountability relative to organizations and teams. This new business environment also brings with it greater ambiguity and uncertainty. Many, if not all, aspects of leadership will require a more collaborative approach to leadership. Today’s model of effective leadership is a learning environment that enables and empowers the entire organization as a whole.
Why Leader Development Coaching?
In matters of style, swim with the current; In matters of principle, stand like a rock.
Breakdowns in traditional training and coaching occur because they tend to be outdated, rigid learning vehicles which do not take into consideration the time constraints and learning styles of adults. Thus, sustainable change cannot happen as it pertains to traditional habits, patterns and outcomes. Our approach to business coaching provides a metrics-driven methodology, based in adult learning allowing leaders to enhance and apply their leadership knowledge and development, especially as it relates to achieving sustainable, enhanced results and outcomes.
Leadership Development Programs
Our Leader Development Coaching practice focuses on developing, or strengthening core business skills which provide a solid platform for leader development. The emphasis is not only on the specific leadership and management skills, or hard business skills such as strategic planning, analytical thinking and root cause analysis – often referred to as transactional leadership skills, but there is an enhanced emphasis on developing the depth of leadership, or softer business skills in areas such as conflict resolution, empathetic negotiation, effective communications and delegation.
We deliver leader development coaching through the following means:
- Self assessment
- Peer group assessment
- Co-creation of personal development plans
- Accountability and responsibility for accomplishing personal goals
