5 Traits every Great Coaching Leader Has!

I have been a professional leadership and executive coach for over 12 years and for the last 10 years I have been training leaders on how to become a coaching leader.  A question leaders ask me all the time…

“What makes a great coaching leader?” 

There are so many things that make a great coaching leader and I wanted to share just 5 of them with you today. 

  1. A great coach listens more than they speak. 
  2. A great coach encourages reflection. 
  3. A great coach is not judgmental. 
  4. A great coach asks great questions. 
  5. A great coach is solutions focused. 

When leaders know how to coach, they feel more confident, they perform higher, and they feel more connected to their team.

There are so many benefits of coaching:

80% of people who receive coaching report increased self-confidence.

Over 70% benefit from improved work performance, relationships, and more effective communication skills. 

A coaching leader is the leader of the future.  Coaching leaders have teams that are engaged, productive and perform.  I don’t know any leader who wouldn’t want that. 

If you are a leader who would like to develop your team, learn or improve your coaching skills, plus get some in-depth strategies you can use to develop these coaching skills, then come and join our workshop.
