Leadership Coaching (for developing leaders)

Leadership coaching is a one-on-one relationship between a coach and an individual. It is a collaborative relationship where the coach assists the leader to develop and maintain sustained behavioural change aimed at enhancing the leader’s professional and personal life. The areas of focus for leadership coaching can include:

  • People management
  • Interpersonal and communication skills
  • Specific skills coaching (such as giving feedback, leading teams, dealing with conflict)
  • Work/life balance
  • Change management
  • Problem solving
  • Goal setting

Coaching has been rapidly gaining popularity in Australia over the last 10-15 years as a targetted form of development offering ‘just in time’ solutions. They meet the specific real time needs of the individual rather than traditional training programs that offer largely ‘just in case’ learnings.
