10 reasons why you need a Leadership Coach

20 August 2021

If you ask a high achieving executive for insight into the secret to their success, many will recommend the benefit of leadership coaching.  There are some very well-known entrepreneurs such as Steve Jobs and Bill Gates, to Oprah Winfrey, who advocate the benefits of coaching. However to be clear, leadership coaching is not just for the C-Suite – coaching can make a significant impact across all levels of your business.

Engaged, productive, and collaborative employees will help you reach and often exceed, your business goals. You’ll also create a workplace that inspires passionate team members who enjoy greater morale and motivation.

Why Leadership Coaching? 

An executive coach supports leaders in navigating their own challenges, improving motivation, and creating greater empathy and awareness, which results in enhanced leadership. With so many benefits, the question may need to be reframed: “why wouldn’t you undertake coaching”? 

In our experience, we find that for a business to reach full potential, management benefits from executive coaching to map a new process or approach. Perhaps a team member may benefit from performance coaching to help them develop a more effective communication style or improve their interpersonal skills.

Research shows coaching helps promote change and success in an organisation through its “Ripple” effect.  Participants in our group Leader as Coach program report increased levels of performance and psychological wellbeing, which rollover to other employees who experience first-hand these new and more effective ways of working and leading.  

Our programs help leaders acquire the skills needed to guide, inspire, and encourage team members to meet their full potential. Outcomes from our Leader as Coach transformational coaching program include:
