How my coaching approach can help leaders when it gets tough.
It can all be going well and then…
Even (but not only) clients that are established leaders, at the top of their game, can get caught in a cloud of doubt.
For one client is was a series of small oversites. They managed them with no big impact on overall results, yet it knocked them trusting themselves.
For another it was a buy out that had an almost overnight impact on their being scrutinised for every action and decision.
A further client found that a change in the team upset their sense of place and a negative change in their behaviour and mindset ensued.
Another was worn out with coping following Covid restrictions and a constant sense of needing to adapt and change.
Managing intense feelings requires emotional awareness
Even with the clarity of objectives, goals, vision and process (and if you don’t have these, how can you have focus for what’s important workwise?), it’s how a situation makes you ‘feel’ that can take you off course from leading well and being well.

Five ways coaching with me can build your leadership EQ* and mental strength?
When you know, you cannot unknow. My coaching approach builds on what you know, widening your options for managing your self and others:
- Psychometrics and 360 feedback to enhance self awareness
- Exploration for learning to manage feelings, so you can respond v re-act
- Reflection time to digest actions, options and desired outcomes
- Proven neuroscience insights that will aid resilience, optimism and confidence
- Leadership techniques to enhance team and individual performance
You are not alone and I could be the coach that can help you to reconnect with all the benefits that leading can bring.
