Working withBasia Skudrzykclients can find opportunities in the following sectors:
Driving results. Through coaching, you will learn how your thoughts affect your moods, how those moods affect your behaviors and how those behaviors ultimately help drive your results, both professionally and personally.
Creating followership. You may already be driving results, but if you push people too hard, those results will eventually decline, and you’ll lose team members. Coaching helps you become a great leader because you learn how to inspire respect, admiration and hard work from those who work for you. Effectively managing down, managing across and managing up. These are all different skill sets that need to be learned.
Situational leadership. This is learning how to address whatever scenarios that happen to come up during the day with the right leadership style for the person or situation at hand. You must be able to adapt to lead from different styles, and coaching can help you achieve this.
Mental fitness. When you are mentally fit, you are not reactive or triggered. You know how to manage stress and overwhelm effectively, you are resilient in whatever conversation/crisis you are facing, and you are able to have poise under pressure. When you are mentally fit, you bring the full capacity of your brain to every situation.
Targeted performance area. Executive coaching can help you manage a particular area that you’ve recognized you need to work on such as anger management, building trust, etc.
A frequently cited survey byPriceWaterhouseCoopersand the Association Resource Centre found that the mean ROI of coaching was seven times the initial investment. That’s because the effects of executive coaching are far reaching. The International Coaching Federation (ICF) reports that “leaders who participated in coaching saw 50 to 70 percent increase in work performance, time management and team effectiveness.” And the benefits multiply.
With strong leadership teams, companies increase their capacity to scale. They benefit from higher productivity, engagement and retention rates, which all profoundly contribute to bottom-line results.
