What are the benefits of personal leadership coaching?
Personal leadership coaching works at a deep level on the client’s way of being. Creating shifts at this level, changes the client’s approach and perspective to all situations, so the benefits are immense and long lasting. The International Coaching Federation states improved self confidence, improved relationships, elevated communication skills, and improved work life balance as the most commonly experienced benefits by clients. The work I’ve done with my clients has most often resulted in:
By creating self awareness, clients can choose who they want to be in any situation, rather than reacting automatically. This choice opens up possibilities for the client and empowers them.
Confidence & Motivation
By overcoming obstacles, making small shifts daily, and creating positive habits, my clients transform their lives. They believe in their own abilities and continue to create the life they want.
Building self integrity, self awareness, and accountability means that my clients are able to continue building their ideal life for years to come. Developing personal leadership is also key to being able to lead others powerfully.
How do personal leadership coaching sessions work?
Personal leadership coaching sessions create a space for the client to choose the agenda, set the pace, and explore how you want to transform the client’s way of being. The client drives the content of the session, while the coach is there to hold the process of working through the issue. The coach’s role is to ask questions, share observations, and challenge assumptions.
Who benefits from personal leadership coaching?
Personal leadership coaching may be for you, if you are ready to explore yourself in depth – your core beliefs, your motivators, and what really drives you. Personal development coaching is great for clients looking to better understand how they show up in life, work and relationships. My personal development coaching clients approach me with the following comments and concerns:
“I am trying to achieve the next step in my career, and I keep getting overlooked by my manager. I need to better understand who I am being at work and what I am missing. How can I develop myself to be ready for the progress I want for my career?”
Communication & relationships
“I am not communicating clearly in my personal / professional relationships. This creates extra work and tension. I feel like I do not get my point across and others don’t understand my perspective. How can I communicate more effectively?”
“I don’t feel confident and second guess my decisions. I know I have a lot to contribute, but in the moment I feel like what I have to say is not valuable or might be wrong. I am holding myself back. How do I build confidence and learn to speak up?”
Leading a team
“I don’t feel like I am effectively leading my team. They don’t seem to listen to me or respect my decisions. Sometime they do not complete the tasks I give them. How can I change this and become a better manager/ leader for others?”
