Coaching in Times of Crisis
As we start to consider returning to work after the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s important that leaders are equipped with the personal and professional tools to help their organization and its employees thrive during this time of change. One way to do this is through coaching. Given the current climate, there are two types of relevant coaching: Executive coaching and Personal Development coaching. Both types have their own benefits and can help employees succeed in an organization.
Executive coaching is a key strategy for developing professionals. It aims to meet you where you are, help you set achievable goals, and support you as you develop. The focus of executive coaching is improving performance and increasing self-awareness of your leader’s strengths, stress behaviors, and development areas, increases engagement and the ability for leaders to productively bounce back from challenges, adversity, conflict, stress and constant change. Coaching for managers and other organizational leaders will help accelerate new managers and high potentials in achieving your business goals
Personal Development coaching helps leaders make high impact changes to gain the energy, resilience, and presence to live well and lead well. Self-leadership is a pre-requisite to becoming a highly effective leader, and effective coaching can create sustainable change for leaders in all areas of life. The outcomes of working on personal development can include increased levels of engagement and productivity, more satisfaction in interpersonal relationships and the ability to find productive solutions for dealing with stress, conflict and change.
Leading through a crisis is hard, and managers and leaders may need additional support in resuming workplace activity.
