In business, leaders need to respond to individuals based on their needs and not their faults. The problem in business leadership is leaders usually respond just the opposite and in so doing damage the culture and create chaos in the business. A great leadership development coach can help you avoid this business-killing problem.
Business Coaching Can Help In Leadership Development
Good leaders to this well, but in many businesses I have found a dearth of leadership often resulting in chaotic business relationships. It’s true that good leaders don’t lead out of a predetermined package of behaviors, but size up every situation and discern the right tactic needed to meet the situation. It’s like a Peyton Manning of the Denver Broncos calling an audible. He sizes things up, and has control of the situation and chooses the right play for the right situation. Good leaders are flexible and they posses mastery of the differing personalities in their companies. They know the issues and make the right choices. If you struggle in this area, you might want to engage with a leadership development coach to help sharpen your skills. As John Maxwell has said, “Everything rises and falls on Leadership” and never more than in today’s business world.
Good leaders follow this path in difficult situations:
They need: They aren’t afraid to admit they need to listen and seek understanding.
They read: They scan the landscape and decide what needs to happen and then they act on what they know.
They feed: They communicate what they observe to the key players on their organization.
They heed: They act on what they know even if it is hard or not popular.
They lead: They provide clear directives to those involved in the process.
In my years of analyzing business leadership I have found that one or more of these key leadership functions are often skipped over, creating erosion in the company culture and discontent. I believe most leaders need leadership development coaching in a big way. Almost everyone I have come across over the years is lacking in this area and they just need the humility to admit it and seek to change.
