Why coaching for your leaders, managers, and executives?
As an executive, you must perform at optimum levels at all times and you must engage and motivate your team to do their best, too. Anyone who thinks that is easy has never tried it before.
That’s why many managers enroll in leadership coaching. It helps them improve personal and team performance. It identifies weak areas and develops an action plan to empower employees. According to IBIS World, US managers spend $11.6 billion annually on business coaching.
Executive coaching is also known as performance coaching. The International Coaching Federation defines it as the interaction between a business leader and executive coach to deliver a thought-provoking, creative, and inspiring interaction to optimize personal and professional performance.
It involves one-on-one sessions focusing on your goals and obstacles. The coach will challenge you to get the best of yourself, your team, and your business while offering support along the way.
At its core, it’s about helping you enact a positive transformation within yourself with the right resources. For senior leaders, supervisor coaching is perhaps the most powerful method of facilitating leadership development and fostering employee engagement.
