Leadership coaching is the choice for the management model of nearly half of North American Fortune 1000 corporations and the number is growing. Executives today are faced with ever-increasing leadership issues as businesses go through global change. The problems they face are unique to the 21st century such as shift in aging workforce, shareholder’s demands, demographics of personnel with a new set of attitudes and values. All together these issues create a whirlpool that leaders must negotiate and go through on day-to-day basis. A combination of difficult expectations keeps executives on their toes. Today, more than ever, executives need coaching.

Technological advances that gave rise to productivity increases is one of the attributes for the increases in popularity of leadership coaching. Gradually this shift has created gaps between corporations and their executives which is moving them to develop innovative ways to work together.

Currently most organizations supplement their leadership training programs with situational coaching testing the approach. Leadership training supported by situational coaching primarily assists leaders to design a high-level capacity for visionary thinking, as well as the “soft skills” skill-sets to organize strong relationships with their direct reports and working teams.

Coaching skills allows us to approach daily life with balance and mindfulness. Leaders go for Positive Psychology coaching to enhance their own creativity as well of the team. Solution-focused managerial coaching results in significant productivity increases as it provides simple yet powerful systemic tools in a well-structured way. Its effectiveness is paramount as it puts the abilities in the hands of individual leaders and teams to design their own coaching results. Employees take control of best practices at all levels of the organization. They acquire leadership development tools and team effectiveness tools. All these approaches are designed to empower communication between executives and the corporation.

Best results take place when coaching programs are systemic starting from the top leadership. Great results are achieved when coaching teams are cohesive following a strategy. Its an inspiring thing to see real performance change in executives’ own bosses. People on multiple levels are inspired at once!

Corporate coaching leaders need to know the inside and out of the business to follow an integrated coaching model developed for creating positive culture change. Positive Psychology approach can be most effective as they combine training in “flow states”, accelerated learning tools and skill-sets to develop emotional intelligence. ICF Core Competencies include “powerful questioning” and “direct communication”. ICF Certified Coaches are experts at system thinking and catalyze initiatives by understanding the organizations whole cultural system by asking questions at multiple levels and soliciting different points of view.
