On the path to becoming a leader, a person learns a lot about how facing challenges, adjusting mindsets and changing behaviours. These can be tough, hard lessons – but ones that enable you to lead, influence and inspire people.
I offer a style of leadership coaching which involves learning with the person about their behavioural temperament. I teach leaders that it doesn’t matter whether you’re an introvert, or an extrovert. What is important is that their team understand them, and they understand their team.
Throughout the course of business leadership coaching, we learn about building trust and valuing difference. A leader will have at least one strength and we recognise what that is and help the person understand it.
The old-fashioned leadership style of command and control is no longer relevant to modern business any more. Compliance and instruction has a toxic effect on an organisation and its people.
Instead, through my coaching, a good leader has the ability to be visionary, affiliative and democratic. I allow people to realise that they can provide these skills and influence a team of people.
My style of leadership coaching enables leaders to be self aware in any situation and be in control of their own behaviour. I help leaders learn how to be agile and develop themselves so they can adjust and offer a combination of styles to suit the environment they are in.
