Why do leaders come to coaching?

Leaders engage in coaching for many different reasons.  Motivations range from a desire to accomplish one or two specific goals, to a need to make fundamental changes in their personal or professional life.  For example:

They want to become better leaders.  They want to inspire people to follow their lead; they want to interact better with peers and others in the organization; or they want to develop the “gravitas” needed to advance into more senior leadership positions.

They need an independent sounding board.  Many leaders feel isolated or alone; they have no one to turn to for confidential conversations or to explore ways they can do a better job.

They feel “stuck” and need fresh insights into what to do next for themselves and/or their organizations. 

They feel ready for a change.  They want to do something new and different but aren’t sure what or how. 

A leadership coach helps individuals go from where they are to where they want to be.


Coaching pays dividends to individuals (and their organizations) in many different forms.  For example, coaching clients:

Improve their ability to achieve and sustain high performance.

Increase their capacity to influence and lead.

Navigate through transitions with greater ease and emerge stronger in the process.

Clarify their visions of success and what the future holds.

Expand their capacity to cope, learn and manage change.

Learn to thrive in times and positions of uncertainty.

A leadership coach helps individuals achieve satisfaction and perform more effectively in all areas of their lives.
