Why leadership coaching?
Leadership coaching is focused one-on-one conversations about your/the coachee’s leadership challenges and goals. The conversations are held in a confidential and reflective space with the purpose of exploring the concrete challenges and finding new answers and options for action. Coaching is relevant for leaders at all levels of an organisation. For instance at the strategic level, executive coaching, or middle managers, who are implementing change, or who might want to work on their personal leadership profile.
A leader can be in many different situations where he/she needs sparring.

- Work with your relations to important stakeholders
“Coaching is unlocking a person’s potential to maximize their own performance. It’s helping them to learn rather than teaching them”.
