Our GURUs can help move you from feeling threatened to feeling challenged. Coaching can provide clarity to help you make decisions about maintaining organizational performance; business continuity; and the safety, well-being, and financial security of your workforce. You may be figuring out strategies for maintaining organizational performance with many people working from home and normal workflows disrupted.

Coaching can also help you work through questions like, How do I crack PCS (J), how do I start preparing How do I keep up in this competition?

In those times, quick doses of coaching daily can be helpful. It can give you a confidential space to test ideas, help you manage or regain energy and focus, recapture your sense of clarity and purpose, and navigate tough decisions with major consequences.

So how does leadership coaching lead to results? Research shows that coaching can improve performance in at least 4 ways:

  1. Greater self- and contextual-awareness. Coaching is about you and where you work. You’ll gain insight about yourself as a leader within your organization.
  2. Greater understanding of others. Our GURUs helps you understand why others might think and act the way they do. You’ll learn about actions you can take to help them or to focus them in a direction that’s better for the organization.
  3. Enhanced ability to communicate. Our GURUs works with you to find ways to improve how you convey what’s important to you, to the business, and to others.
  4. Enhanced ability to GURUs others. Once you’ve experienced the value of coaching for your own development, you’ll be much more prepared to notice and leverage coaching opportunities with your team. This capacity will be a key differentiator between a good leader and a great one.

However, a good coaching outcome requires a good coaching relationship. Asking the right questions in the beginning sets the tone for a strong partnership.

If you’re ready to invest in coaching to improve your performance or just need 30-60 minutes a week to get more honed in and grounded, coaching offers a tailored, focused way to connect your performance development with your day-to-day work demands.

Coaching in organization and leadership settings is also an invaluable tool for developing people across a wide range of needs. The benefits of coaching are many; 80% of people who receive coaching report increased self-confidence, and over 70% benefit from improved work performance, relationships, and more effective communication skills. 86% of companies report that they recouped their investment on coaching and more (source: ICF 2009).

Coaching provides an invaluable space for personal development. For example, managers are frequently presented with employees struggling with low confidence. The traditional approach would be to send them to an assertiveness course and hope this addresses the issue. In the short-term, the employee learns new strategies for communicating which may improve confidence. Unfortunately, in isolation these courses rarely produce a sustained increase in confidence. Although external behavior may change; it needs to be supported by changes in their internal thought processes. This is often where coaching is most effective.

Managers should not underestimate the impact of coaching on their people as it frequently creates a fundamental shift in their approach to their work. For example, increased self-confidence enables employees to bring more of them into the workplace. This results in employees being more resilient and assertive.
