coaching in Leadership today

Over the last 10 years we have seen leadership change from a style of command and control to one of transformation and empowerment.

From our years of experience as a market-leading learning partner, we have seen three recent themes emerge:

This is coaching.

Leaders of the future need to be able to coach

One challenge can be convincing leaders in your organisation that coaching can have real impact and is not a touchy feely nice to have. International Law firm Allen & Overy decided to make coaching a key part of the firm’s leadership culture. A senior partner positioned it like this: ‘As a senior leader, you have roughly 100 conversations a year that are of particularly high value—in the sense that they will change your life or the life of the person you’re talking to. We want to help you acquire the skills to maximize value in those 100 conversations, to unlock previously hidden issues, to uncover new options, and to reveal fresh insights.’

Having powerful conversations is one benefit but building capacity to empower others, improve performance and model good team behaviour are also the benefits that you can expect to see in your organisation.

Business challenges:

We have identified what we believe to be the key business challenges as we navigate a hybrid approach to organisational life:

- Mental Health Support
- Presenteeism
- Inconsistent performance
- Leading through change
- Leading in and encouraging a diverse workplace
- Ensuring team collaboration

"The coach house facilitated a series of courses for Active UK, specifically the Leader as Coach programme. it was not only enjoyable, informative but extremely impactful personally and professionally. It has led to us adopting and developing a leadership approach that is routed in empowerment and unlocking individual potential.
We are still on the journey but with a set of skills that will be pivotal to our growth and success."
