What is Leadership Coaching?
Leadership Coaching, is a collaborative, individualized relationship between a leader and the coach — the leader could well be an executive, manager, supervisor, team leader or business owner for example — anyone in charge or responsible for a group of people.
Coaching is a one-to-one or perhaps group service for leaders or executives designed to bring about more effective, healthier organizations. Hence, when leaders improve their performance, such benefits spread throughout the organisation. In a sense, exposing senior leaders to the coaching experience has a flow-on effect of precipitating a coaching culture within the organisation itself.
As people responsive to coaching apply their new found skills and techniques to other people in the organisation, improved interaction cascades down the organisation. Hence, coaching can also be viewed as a passing on of a set of skills used by leaders in the organization on a day-to-day basis that enhances the performance of their people.
