Starting from the Top – the Benefits of Leadership Coaching

In today’s global workforce, success as a professional is closely tied to your ability to communicate, inspire and lead others through the sometimes shifting sands of the national and international business environment.  One way many professionals seeking to be successful leaders work through changing business environments and cultures is by using the expertise of a leadership or executive coach.

As Jeffrey Immelt , Chairman and CEO of General Electric so aptly put it, “Leadership is a journey… it is a process of self-awareness and self-renewal.”  An executive coach works with clients who seek to create a professional life they love in an effort to bring about positive change in the world. Leadership coaching offers numerous benefits to the professional leader including how to:

  • Take your management and leadership abilities to the next level.
  • Build rapport and effective coaching conversations.
  • Develop self-directed team members who take initiative and responsibility to ensure the success of the company.
  • Create a culture of confidence and creativity where team members orient toward solutions, align with corporate growth and direction, and reach their highest potential.
  • Inspire cross-functional teams to scale with the company’s growth by becoming more self-directed and responsible, and reduce conflict through effective communication.
  • Implement motivation techniques to take your team members to the next level.

It is important to remember that transformations like this don’t just happen. Leaders must be intentional with their own personal growth and development. We always recommend using a leadership coach that is certified by the International Coaching Federation (ICF).  The ICF training provides the coach with the techniques and coaching modalities that serve to help the client gain a proper perspective about their role as a leader.

A leadership coach provides the guidance needed to achieve professional goals by helping the client identify and overcome the obstacles standing in the way of a desired path. At Academy of Leadership Coaching & NLP (ALCN) we work with our clients using the cutting-edge coaching modality, Neuro-Linguistic-Programming (NLP).  Working through the NLP methodology allows the coach and client come together in identifying the often unacknowledged, unconscious beliefs that are sabotaging or holding the professional back from moving to the next steps in their career. NLP provides clients with the tools they need to reprogram these beliefs and create their individual pathway to success.
