Leadership coaching is an effective intervention for executive development, particularly in the area of helping executives understanding their personal styles and response patterns, and the issues that arise from these.
Organisational benefits from leadership coaching are many and varied but derive principally from the development of the individual with the aim to increase retention, morale, creativity and productivity.
Effective programs are based on three foundational concepts: organisational convictions around the effects of leadership development, effective management of the natural tensions that arise throught the use of coaching, and the appropriate selection and positioning of leadership coaching as an intervention.
