What Skills Do You Gain from Leadership Coaching?

The right leadership coaching program builds well-rounded leaders who excel in both hard and soft skills. Again, the skills we focus on pertain to the needs and objectives of your organization and role.

These skills include but are not limited to:

  • Better strategic thinking: Leadership coaching enables individuals to develop a strategic mindset. Leaders may work toward shifting their approach by envisioning long-term goals and making data-backed decisions to facilitate initiatives.
  • Higher empathy: Through feedback, reflection, and active listening exercises, leaders will build a wider empathetic lens. This lens is intended to nurture better self-awareness and relationships and drive better organizational outcomes.
  • Enhanced communication: We look at a leader’s existing communication skills and utilize various coaching techniques to help them deliver more impactful conversations. Leaders may also adapt coaching techniques they themselves can leverage to drive team and individual performance.
  • Productive conflict resolution: Leaders will understand how to flex various management strategies depending on a given situation and/or a person’s strengths and weaknesses. They will also assess ways to productively handle their own emotions during times of conflict to produce the right results.

Why Should Leaders Have Coaching?

Good coaching establishes a stronger foundation for navigating challenges. It also unlocks a small- and big-picture perspective, providing leaders with the opportunity to hone their skills and use those skills to help the organization reach its full potential.

Leaders who have taken advantage of our coaching services have reported improved:

  • Feedback skills: Coaching helps leaders feel more confident in providing feedback to team members as well as receiving feedback themselves. More importantly, they understand how to deliver feedback constructively and compassionately.
  • Self-awareness: Good leadership encompasses humility. Quality coaching helps participants achieve this. Coaching encourages leaders to step outside their comfort zone, enabling them to understand others’ perspectives. This empathy and alignment helps leaders better understand areas they thrive in and areas that merit improvement.
  • Accountability: Coaching creates a supportive environment where leaders are held accountable for their actions and responsibilities. Coaches provide objective feedback, encourage leaders to stay focused on objectives, and teach them how to help team members develop accountability for themselves.

CMOE’s Leadership Coaching Approach

We approach Leadership Coaching in two ways:

1. We partner closely with individual leaders and key stakeholders to identify behaviors that are contributing to the leader’s success, as well as behaviors that are limiting their effectiveness. We utilize a combination of data gathering, survey assessment, observation, and interviews to understand your specific needs. CMOE uses this information to customize a learning experience that focuses on each leader’s current challenges and opportunities for improvement. Leadership Coaching will help clients do the following:

  • Identify their strengths and areas needing development
  • Give and receive constructive, open feedback to and from others
  • Identify and collaboratively create action plans for future development
  • Develop a sustainability plan to ensure successful implementation and long-term success
  • Identify resources, such as mentors, who can help guide participants through their learning process

2. As previously mentioned, CMOE partners with clients to ensure that the learning is focused on relevant challenges and opportunities specific to each client. At times, clients have requested Curriculum-Based Leadership Coaching, meaning that CMOE will work in groups or one-on-one with leaders to help them master practical skills. These individuals will have the opportunity to learn and apply what leaders from world-class organizations such as Pfizer, HP, ChevronTexaco, and Wells Fargo, to name a few, have achieved while working with a highly qualified and experienced CMOE facilitator. Possible focus areas for Leadership Coaching can include but are not limited to the :

  • Developing Coaching Skills
  • Leading Groups to Solutions: A Facilitation Skills Workshop
  • Flexible Leadership
  • Transitioning Into Leadership
  • Applied Strategic Thinking
  • Qualities of Leadership
  • Building High Performance Teams
  • Innovation and Change
