Leadership Development

Strengths profile

The core strengths profile is based on you, and reveals your own unique filter on the world. The strengths based coaching questions explore how you do things, rather than what you’re doing, helping you to understand why you behave the way you do, and how we relate to each other. Relationship building is more than a soft skill, and the core strengths profile questionnaire can help you relate to others, communicate and build the ability to improve dialogue.

Leadership skills can and should be continually improved upon. As you reach your development goals, reassess your leadership skills and choose new areas to work on. Some key skills include initiative skills, organisational, delegation, communication and interpersonal skills.

Setting actionable leadership goals helps you to continuously develop skills and work towards a leadership development plan. We will work together to build a roadmap of how your organisation plans to nurture leadership skills in employees across all levels; it will address the needs of leaders of all levels within the organisation, both current leaders and those you wish to train for future leadership positions. It will include leadership goals that align with both strategic business needs and interpersonal, or more human, needs.

A leadership strategy can help develop or maintain performance, by delivering a clear roadmap of how many leaders are needed, of what kind, where, with what skills, addressing both individual leadership goals as well as collectively to achieve strategic success.

Investing in a leadership development consultant can result in a meaningful, positive impact on the bottom line.

Where do I start?

  1. It starts with a conversation, to explore what you are looking for and how I could help. We use this conversation to discuss the challenges you are facing, or goals and outcomes you’d like to achieve through the leadership coaching.
  2. Following this session, if you want to go ahead, I would recommend a bespoke programme of coaching, often a series of monthly coaching sessions (though this does vary depending on specific needs).
  3. We will confirm the specific areas you want to focus on, and also discuss logistics, timings and other practicalities.
