In today’s fast-paced business environment of constant change and increasing uncertainty, successful leaders are those who are certain in knowing where they are currently, fearless in deciding where they should aim to be, and confident in choosing how they will get there. It’s no longer enough to “manage change"; today’s leaders must thrive on it!

A leader combines the vision and curiosity of a dreamer with the practical building skills of an architect. A leader is goal-directed, looking to attain measurable outcome goals with confidence and determination. Goals give an effective leader meaning and purpose and serve as motivation in pursuit of organizational and individual success.

The Best Tool To Develop Your Leadership Skills

Those who are most successful at leading others have mastered the art of self-leadership. This doesn’t materialize overnight, nor does it happen in isolation. Someone who strives to be a great leader recognizes the value of using all possible tools. One such tool is working with a Developmental Coach.

As a professional Developmental Coach, I facilitate organic change in individuals. I help you achieve your goals by partnering with you to create and oversee strategies that use psychological and behavioral insights. Developmental coaching is there to help you reflect on your professional goals, assess strengths and weaknesses, set realistic goals, and create action plans to reach those goals. The purpose of developmental coaching is not to impact behavioral change, but rather to bring about a mindset change.

The Process of Developmental Coaching

Leadership development is greatly accelerated by following a professional developmental coaching process. It’s a structured, open-ended, and pragmatic approach to personal and professional growth. The process is designed to help individuals develop the attitudes, skills, and qualities necessary for personal and organizational leadership.

Developmental coaching, as opposed to more traditional coaching, typically uses assessment tools, 360-degree feedback, and analysis of past experiences to determine the stage of development that a person is in before starting the process.

I am certified in assessment profiles to help determine what really drives your individual peak performance and uncover blind spots. They measure how you think and make decisions: the WHAT, WHY, and HOW of personal assessment.

The WHAT is how we think and perceive the world around us; what natural talents you possess based on how you make decisions.

The WHY behind people's actions will reveal what influences individuals.  WHY you are spurred to use your natural talents based on your motivators and drivers.

The HOW is our observable human behavior and what behaviors we bring to our job. HOW you choose to use your natural talents based on your preferred behavioral style.

The Process Involves Three Essential Elements:

Attitude Development: In order to create an environment of positive attitudes and possibility thinking, it is important for a leader to understand where and how attitudes are formed and how those attitudes can be developed.

Interpersonal Skills: Much of what a leader is involved in, and therefore accomplishes, involves other people. To be effective in this continuous challenge, it is important to learn, understand, and use interpersonal skills effectively.

Goal Setting: Leadership, among other things, is the process of providing organizational direction and accomplishing necessary objectives. The goal accomplishment model provides the tools and process necessary to achieve more goals, more often, in order to maximize results and outcomes.

Developmental Coaching, its processes and assessments, is a masterful tool designed to get you to meet and exceed your goals with undeniable results. Contact me to learn how it will work in your organization.
