What Does a Leadership Coaching Program Teach You?
Each program is unique in its own way, but all them attempt to teach accepted leadership strategies and nurture each individual’s leadership style. Some programs may focus only on business leadership, while others may bring together both personal and professional lives. Some programs focus on leading others through coaching, while others may focus on personal leadership skills.
A good leadership coaching program not only teaches coaching skills, but it also teaches self-awareness and how to nurture the capacity to use personal strengths, knowledge, and talents to help others – one of the basic tenants of all coaching. The coaching program you select should offer:
- Techniques to strengthen your core abilities and personal leadership qualities.
- The knowledge and skills to apply new and enhanced capabilities learned in the program to the ever-changing real world.
- Knowledge about trends that will shape the future of coaching, business, politics, and leadership.
- The ability to work with faculty who have been leaders in the world and have the ability to bring their experience into the classroom for the benefit of all students.
The Case for Personal Leadership
Though these programs are often designed for individuals seeking to enter the coaching profession or positions of leadership, they can also be a valuable tool for anyone who seeks to create a comfortable existence in a complex world.
We idolize our leaders and we look to them to solve our problems, which leads to a form of dependency. We are dependent on our government representatives to fix our problems – if they don’t, we have an easy scapegoat. We look to leaders, in politics and business, to look after us, pay attention to our needs, and help us reach our goals. By relying on leaders to this extent, we are disempowering ourselves and lowering our chances of reaching our goals, not matter how lofty or low they are. Would it not be better if we could lead ourselves and forge our own trail through the wilderness of life? Would it not be beneficial to learn the skills of leadership and develop your own style of personal leadership? You do not need aspirations to be a business or political leader to realize that a leadership coaching program can benefit anyone who wants to pursue life, liberty, and happiness. Lead yourself first!
