Individuals and organisations face several challenges with leadership development, including locating excellent coaching providers, tailoring individual coaching programs, correctly diagnosing what needs to change, delivering visible results, and measuring ROI.
I work with all involved to tailor individual coaching programs. Everyone requires a unique approach. I often diagnose existing leadership behaviour first, so that our starting point becomes very clear to the client, the client organisation, and myself. Diagnostic results are provided as charts that the client can clearly see and understand. This enables me to coach at 'root cause' of what is helping or hindering results.
High-performers invariably prefer self-directed coaching. My role is ensuring they do this with awareness, reflection, and alignment with organisational objectives.
Stakeholder engagement ensures coaching provides visible results in the right direction. Measuring ROI is a joint project.
My clients establish structures that sustain their ongoing development, as my objective is to 'retreat facing forwards'. Coaching programs are ideally 6 - 12 months in order to remedy any relapse, which is a normal part of change. I also structure coaching programs according to the development needs available.
