We are finding that an increasing number of our clients are turning to one to one coaching to support the development of their senior leaders. Coaching benefits both the individual and their organisation. It helps senior leaders reflect, grow, adapt, and lead more effectively, enabling them to better contribute to the overall success of the organisation.
Here are six key benefits that clients tell us they appreciate:
Personalised leadership development one-to-one coaching provides highly personalised leadership development. Our coaches tailor their support to the specific strengths, and development areas of the senior leader. Coaching helps senior leaders refine and enhance their leadership capability.
Enhanced self-awareness - our coaches often use assessments and feedback to help leaders gain greater understanding of themselves and their leadership style. Improved self-awareness can enable leaders to work more effectively with others and adapt their leadership style appropriately.
Reduced stress - senior leadership roles can be highly stressful. Our coaches can help leaders develop strategies that help them personally to manage stress and minimise the impact on themselves and others around them.
Increased confidence - working with a coach can boost a leader's confidence in their abilities. Coaching provides the space for them to reflect on their successes and notice the impact they are making.
Retention of top talent - investing in coaching and the development of senior leaders demonstrates commitment to talent development, which can help retain top talent.
Stepping up - coaching can provide support for those stepping into senior leadership roles and give them a safe space and a sounding board in which to explore challenges.
We know from experience that one-to-one coaching for senior leaders is a strategic investment that brings benefits for both the leaders themselves and their organisations.
Providing one to one coaching for all senior leaders in an organisation can have a significant impact on the culture of the organisation. Leaders who have experienced being coached have a greater understanding of how utilising a coaching approach themselves can support people in their teams to grow and develop and take greater responsibility.
Most of the coaching we provide at Taylor Clarke is delivered virtually because it is time efficient for leaders but if a coachee prefers, we can provide coaching face to face.
If you are considering offering coaching to the senior leaders in your organisation, we at Taylor Clarke have a team of qualified and highly experienced coaches. We provide a matching service to match the coachee with the most appropriate coach which involves a chemistry session so that the coachee can decide if they feel the coach is suitable for them.
