Contracting an external leadership coach as part of your business team is an integral part of people development strategy for high performing businesses. The value that having an external coach brings many benefits to businesses of all sizes. The development of your people should be a major focus of every business owner and managers. But often the sheer pressure of operating the business limits the impact of internal coaching or mentoring. And in turn, this limits the performance of your team. It’s a negative cycle impacting your business.

That is where having an external leadership coach can help. Contracting an external coach supports the professional growth of your team and plays an integral part of your leadership development and of your team. Good external leadership coaches will understand your business vision and tune their coaching of the team to align them to your desired outcomes. And ultimately bring it to life.

Great coaches work with you. They work with you to obtain and reach success. They will assess yourself and your team and provide growth plans for your development and business success. They understand how important it is to work on your strengths as well as your weaknesses, and support you in developing a well-rounded skillset.

The benefits of your business are many:

  1. You have a fresh set of eyes and ears to help build and develop your business
  2. Great coaches build rapport and trust with their clients and this empowers them to see solutions to their problems they may not have previously seen.
  3. Your team have an impartial and independent coach that provides them confidentiality to build their career without the fear of agendas and politics
  4. Your external coach can assess current skill set and knowledge, provide in-depth growth plans for the leadership group and monitor ongoing performance lifts.
  5. A great coach will provide appropriate guidance on the growth of the team and be able to provide measurable outcomes for delivery.
  6. PLUS they should provide a dashboard to show progress in the development aims PLUS, do the admin.

It seems like a win-win to me. Hiring an external leadership coach helps the business concentrate on its core functions while providing a growth environment for the team to thrive.
