What is Leadership Coaching?
There are so many concepts about leadership, that it is very easy to get lost, there are countless practices, strategies and ideas about and how leadership should be, including what it is to be a one to one coach, a leader, how to deliver training to your organisation, how to create motivation in the workplace and much more.
This coaching is beyond concepts and ideas of leadership, it will uncover what is already naturally inside of you, we will tap into your natural creativity that will allow you to be an inspiration within your role. Leadership is not always all about goals and vision boards, but sometimes just about showing up as your authentic self. Getting comfortable with you really are, and not who you think you should be.
It is the concepts of leadership that often stop you from showing up in your true power that is within, that give you too much to think about and not just be in the moment with the decisions you need to make.

How does Leadership Coaching work?
Leadership coaching works either on a one-to-one basis, giving feedback, support and guidance through a deeper understanding of how the mind really works. We dig into what makes you tick, and how having a clearer mind can help you see so much further and wider in leadership decisions.
You get to see that resources are not the problem, but the belief about a lack of resourcefulness that is within. Everyone is infinitely creative, they just believe they are not, that’s not to say that some people are not better suited to certain tasks and that’s what learn to see.
Intuitive insight lead leadership, where you get to see what is already there, beyond your level of thinking about what you need, do or don’t have the ability to create or achieve. This coaching will open your mind to the infinite creative potential that is available to everyone.
We get to rethink your goals from a different perspective and a different understanding of your own ability, where you get to maximise your own natural performance capabilities, and feel confident about your daily life.
One to One
Coaching one to one is great if you have issues that you don’t want to share in a group usually but in transformative leadership coaching there really is no need to share personal details, the understanding is universal and often our personal stories have less weight when we start to realise the source of our experience. You can often miss out on sharing insights, and getting the benefit of other people’s transformations which is magical to see.
Group Coaching / Team Building
Group coaching can be a wonderful experience, you get to go on a journey of understanding together, and often what one person sees and shares with the group, becomes a point of exploration for everyone. Group coaching tends to have a great outcome when people are willing to listen and not forced to be there by their employer. Groups are relaxed and warm, with no one having to share anything they don’t want to be, generally people leave with a feeling of well-being and a closer relationship with their colleagues.
Leadership Coaching vs Executive Coaching
Leadership coaching is the concept people know to develop leadership skills and for leaders. People in positions of responsibility and or with a team or even a business to lead. The fundamentals of ALL coaching are the same, when you have a better understanding of how your own experience is created, and you see that all the concepts of psychology are simply just that, they are not fact. An exploration of leadership from this place leads to a different outcome. Executive business coaching is for people who who are C-Suite positions and or for businesses in general, teams and executives can have specific needs, but there is no difference in the fundamentals
The Benefits of Leadership Coaching
The benefits of this leadership coaching are beyond words and text really, and it would be great to have a conversation if this resonates with you.
You get to see that the limitations that look like real hurdles in life, the things that stop productivity and creativity flowing are merely a reflection of your own beliefs about what is possible. Once you see the blocks that are all made up in your own mind about what is possible, the floodgates open to see the infinite creative potential.
Rather than limitations looking like road blocks, they start to look like challenges to overcome, or gifts to nurture. When you start to see the enormous innate ingenuity that is built into the human design, positivity will prevail, work/life balance will come naturally, stress reduction will no longer be a goal.
With insight lead learning, what you get to see is yours, its permanent, there are no practices or strategies because we are uncovering what is within. It is a journey beyond beliefs, not always easy but the most rewarding journey any person can go on.
While this may seem somewhat abstract at this point, to put it simply
Leadership – Understand your innate ability to lead
Clarity – Make clear decisions and move forward
Productivity – Improved productive processes and understandings
Compassion – Greater ability to feel and connect with team members
Resilience – Realise the source of innate resilience is within

Leadership Coaching FAQ’s
Leadership coaching can be delivered in your business, to yourself or your team leaders, or in groups, or via zoom, it depends on your needs and the amount of people involved. Often an initial conversation via video conference helps us get aligned.

Coaching is effectively a type of development, or a mutually beneficial relationship where a professional coach gives support, guidance to a learner/client in an area of life, by providing training either online or in person. The learner is also known as a coachee, the relationship maybe formal or informal it depends on the arrangement, but a relaxed environment and embracing humanness is important for continued development. Mentoring is different to coaching, because even though the coachee may bring specific tasks or objectives they are often the fundamental in roads to help rebuild the foundations of development. A mentor will bring their expertise in a specific area of business, where they have already been successful, a coach’s expertise is coaching, you are the expert on your business in the coaching relationship.
