WHAT IS COACHING?
Coaching is one of the most personalised forms of development. It focuses specifically on you - your needs, your situation and your goals.
Coaches help you find your own solutions, rather than giving advice or telling you what to do. They ask questions, share observations and hold up a mirror so that you can see yourself more clearly. They may also use a variety of 'creative techniques' to help you approach a challenge from a different angle.
HOW CAN COACHING HELP YOU?
As a new leader, coaching can help you define what's most important and create a plan to keep focused as you start to feel the pull of other demands on your time.
It can help you decide how you want to show up as a leader, recognising your values and preferences as well as those of your team and stakeholders.
Coaching goes beyond the immediate task at hand - whether that's crafting a compelling vision or figuring out how to create more time to upskill your team. If looks at what these things mean to you and how you can thrive by getting out of your own way.
