In my last article I explained the benefits of using a business consultant. One of those is that new leaders can be coached to the betterment of the entire company. I would like to explain this in further detail.
Many people would give a resounding yes please! if asked if they’d like free training to help them improve on the job. Most of us want whatever is best for the company and if we can become more well-rounded as a manager, all the better!
New leaders are sometimes unsure about explaining the strategy of the business to their team or department, while also ensuring tactical objectives are achieved. That “in-between” role is one of the most difficult in the organization, and essential to leadership success. Here are 3 reasons why business coaching changes everything:
1. It helps new leaders grow – As my previous point describes, new leaders can sometimes be unsure of themselves, or struggle with getting the respect they deserve from their peers and direct reports when first starting out. They may have a different leadership style from the rest of the team, or the company for that matter. Business coaching helps them find their rhythm or place in the organization, and ensures they are staying on track with the overarching goal of the organization.
2. It helps with team cohesion – Everyone has their strengths and weaknesses, so after discovering those in behavioral assessments or with 360 reviews, you can take steps towards team cohesion. There are always times when a team has issues or conflicts, but how they handle those conflicts, both individually and as a team, are what makes or breaks a leader, department or company. Business coaching helps a team and company smooth over the rough patches, and gets things moving in the right direction.
3. It helps an organization grow – No one is an expert in every field or area of a company. There are times when people step into new roles or departments because they’re great at something, but other things are later discovered that need to be improved upon. An organization going through change is the perfect one for a business coach. Opportunities for growth exist at the leader level, and ultimately, the organization as a whole will grow.
