How will you impact your organization?
Leaders can deeply impact those around them. Their behavior, values, and presence set the tone for what’s possible. Their style impacts the performance of their team and ultimately the performance of every department within the organization.
Teams are a key to organizational success. Every employee, from top to bottom, works with other individuals to accomplish goals designed to develop products, improve processes, and engage people’s skills, hearts, and minds for the collective good.
"We’ve done lots of research over the past three years, and we’ve found that leaders who have the best coaching skills have better business results."
---- V.P. of Global Executive & Organizational Development at IBM
Executive coaching produces both business results and the personal transformation that drives future success. It provides an opportunity for self-reflection and self-discovery and sets new patterns of thinking, behaving and resourcefulness. In turn this increases personal effectiveness as a leader.
People who willingly accept responsibility have an internal drive to do what is needed. This can be anything from performing a task to making sure that a group of people are achieving individual as well as team goals. They stand out because they have an ability to get things done. We call them leaders.
Many teams concentrate almost exclusively on content, to the detriment of process and feelings. Every team over time will change and develop. Factors of success for every team depends on well individuals perform in meeting the objective. To that end, it is more important how well people trust each other to perform for the good of the team. It requires good old fashioned teamwork.
