Business leadership coaching enhances a person’s abilities and skills to lead and to help an organisation meet its operational objectives. This is done by increasing a person’s ability to perform as a leader and helping achieve a company’s vision, with the help of a leadership coach.
Benefits of leadership coaching
There are many benefits of having a leadership development programme, but we will name the key ones:
Improved performance and engagement
73% of employees spend a significant amount of time dealing with problems caused by ineffective leadership (Molinaro, 2013). Gallup (2013) research supports this, concluding that poor managers are one of the key drivers for disengagement – reporting that the net effect on the business is estimated to cost organisations $450-$550 billion a year. Leadership development coaching is a key tool to combat this. Using the latest research and technology, CoachHub collaborates with organisations to accelerate leadership development. We do this by supporting the transfer of learning through digital coaching.
New insight and innovation
Leadership success is increasingly depending on innovation and creativity that relies more on emotional intelligence and collaboration. Coaching is a powerful way of developing these soft skills that are needed to be successful today. Women in leadership programmes in particular, are found to be consistently successful in gaining new insights. According to the International Labour Organisation (2019) more than 54% of organisations who implemented women in leadership development programmes, report improvements in creativity, innovation in management practices and openness
The managers of today are having to cope with a new reality and simply cannot have all right answers. Companies are therefore moving away from traditional command-and-control practices towards a more collaborative and supportive management style where guidance, over instructions, is offered. Leadership development coaching, can help leaders in adopting new behaviours to support this style of work. This way, their teams can remain agile in ever-changing environments.
