In today’s world, people across different walks of life find it difficult to choose the “right” way forward. New choices are dawned upon us everyday be it during a course of an important project or while making a critical decision that could impact our professional trajectory. Thus, people are looking for an external sounding board to help them clear up their mind clutter.
𝐏𝐫𝐨𝐟𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐚𝐥𝐂𝐨𝐚𝐜𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐠 helps do exactly that and thus coaching engagements are picking up quite rapidly these days.
As a 𝐋𝐞𝐚𝐝𝐞𝐫𝐬𝐡𝐢𝐩 & 𝐋𝐢𝐟𝐞𝐂𝐨𝐚𝐜𝐡, some common coaching topics I encounter are:
1) Enhance Strategic Mindset
A strategic mindset can serve as an invaluable tool across different areas of life - ranging from personal situations to workplace scenarios. It helps people proactively consider long-term opportunities as well as challenges that might develop in the future. This can ultimately prevent unnecessary stress, unpleasant surprises, and the negative consequences that often arise from a sheer lack of preparation.
2) Build Effective Teams
A team is as strong as its weakest link. That said, success of any initiative or its leader is completely dependent on the team behind it. A Leader of today is aware of this fact and is always looking for ways to build and develop an effective team.
3) Improve Decision Making Skills
Taking the right decision be it in workspace or in personal life enhances your chances of success. There are numerous dimensions of decision-making ranging from rationalizing the problem, weighing options & alternatives to considering consequences. Coaching brings to fore these dimensions and becomes a “in the moment” nudge.
4) Build Trust as a Leader
Everything that a Leader does begins and ends with trust. Leaders recognize that Trust is an earned currency, but it can be a gradual and challenging process. Once trust is established, a leader can align their team into a high-performing unit capable of achieving success.
5) Conflict Resolution
Conflicts are part and parcel of every relationship – personal or professional. Leaders recognize that proactive understanding of conflicts allows leaders to manage it more effectively and provide a path to positive resolution. Coaching can help Leaders master the art of constructive conflict resolution and empowers them with various techniques to use ranging from bargaining to accommodation.
6) Effective Stakeholder Management
Leaders understand that every individual they interact with is a stakeholder. And finding a way to effectively work with them becomes one the most critical leadership quality. Working with a Coach, Leaders can access their stakeholder management skills and ideate on ways to effectively work with them during different situations.
