Cognitive flexibility, innovation and creativity can often be particularly important and leadership coaching can help. Are you ready for a coaching relationship? Here are some thought starters:
Change is now a constant and that requires a workforce of change agents and a creative and resourceful culture. To successfully navigate this terrain, senior executives must create a vision for the future, manage risks, challenge assumptions and embrace change as the new normal. Throughout scholarly literature, it is noted that change is a critical driver of organizational success. It is the responsibility of the senior executive team to implement change strategies and model the behaviors and values required to support the vision. Often this is accomplished in an environment that is volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA).
Coaching is one of the fastest growing professions around the world. It is a relatively young profession where trained individuals work with a leader who is experiencing difficulty working toward their goals or some behaviors and/or habits they would like to change.
Unlike therapy, consulting or mentoring, the coach does not tell the leader what to do, nor does the coach delve into their past as a therapist does. Similar to those other disciplines, the coach empowers the leader by asking powerful questions that bring new awareness and insights to create breakthroughs for new possibilities to move forward from where he or she is currently stuck. The coach serves as a sounding board and provides perspective on what is being shared. Together, they create actions to drive change towards the leader’s goals. If both agree, the coach may hold the coachee accountable for any action plans.
