This service can be useful at all levels of management from the CEO to the front line supervisor. There are three typical reasons why coaching is considered:
- You are promoted into a supervisory/management position with little or no prior leadership training nor preparation for the circumstances that you inherit.
- A lean organizational structure does not allow a direct report the time
- An independent, objective approach is needed to address internal issues and develop leadership strategies for improvement.
For these and other reasons, coaching continues to be a growing and desirable resource for companies of all sizes and missions. It is easy to see how this service is also valuable to small businesses who often rely heavily on a single person without peers to carryout critical functions.
Our approach to helping managers develop leadership skills is based upon years of experience and our knowledge of human behavior. The job, the personality, and the person are elements that need to be understood in carrying out an effective coaching and development plan. Many managers do not understand how they as individuals present themselves to others and how that impacts their effectiveness as a leader.
