Leadership Coaching

Leadership Coaching

‘Progress Coaching’ provide an ‘Executive Leadership’ Coaching service which primarily focuses on ‘One-to-one’ workshops with Industry leaders. This can also be tailored to suit Leadership teams.

‘Research has shown that Leaders who embrace Coaching and are open to changing their behaviours & mindsets are better to work for and have less transition from their respective team unit. Such Leaders tend to be more open to feedback and are not afraid to embrace any vulnerabilities that may show up along the way. There is also clear evidence that such Leaders have an increasingly positive impact when it comes to Revenue bottom-line for companies.  Other benefits for the organisation (of offering such a Coaching mentorship to their Leadership teams) include – retention of Senior staff who in turn are aware of their teams skills and skills-gap placing them in a great position to offer appropriate training investment leading to a more empowered team member. Improved efficiency, productivity & morale are just some of the benefits of embracing such Coaching. After all, better Leaders make better decisions, have more high-performing teams and increase the value-add to the organisation overall. 

Today, as Leaders at all levels face increasingly difficult challenges in more complex ways than ever before, there is a marked increase of this use of a Coach. This Coaching engagement has become more embedded than ever in the long-term organisational strategy of that particular organisation. 

‘Leadership Coaching’ connects in very closely with both ‘Talent Retention’ & ‘Talent Attraction‘.The Leader has a huge role to play when it’s come to both.

For instance, on the subject of ‘Talent Attraction‘ when interviewing a prospective new employee the Leader may well be that first sense of what the organisations looks and feels like to them – first impressions are vital to make that positive impact on the candidate. How you as a Leader show up to an interview, what energy you give off and the research you put into the candidates background can either ensure you secure this talent or otherwise. Leaders should always be in ‘selling-mode’ at interview. Our coaching helps Leaders build their behaviours which set you up for success when it comes to On-boarding and ensuring a fantastic ‘Candidate Experience’.

Equally, when it comes to ‘Talent Retention‘, the Leader plays an integral role in what we like to the ‘Future-proofing of your People-infrastructure‘. For instance, if you envisage ‘Change’ happening on a large scale in your organisation, you need to be aware of potential impact on your current team. How do you plan for that for instance? Again, ‘Progress Coaching’ can help here.

Whether they are aware or not, all Leaders are now required to be key ‘Influencers’ as well. If you can’t influence as a Leader and get others to buy into your vision and travel on that journey with you then you will not deliver the programme of work you need to or make the changes required to drive your business forward etc…

Ultimately, ‘Leadership Coaching’ is about embracing the concept of objective feedback and trusting your Coach to provide a confidential & safe space where you can be honest and open in an effort to reach whatever goals you need to. Coaching is not an advisory service and the key Coaching skill is one of ‘Listening’. We tend to observe and listen and from what we hear we can point out potential blind-spots, strengths or gaps. The aim is to make you a more rounded and more aware leader – aware of both your potential and your limitations.

At “Progress Coaching”, we aim to deliver an effective Coaching interaction which empowers Industry Leaders to become more self-led in their developmental journey. 

Over the years, we have had lots of success in this area of Coaching by acting as the ‘Objective Accountability Partner’ where the client (Leader/Manager) needs to ‘show up’ / ‘be accountable’ to each Coaching session with an honesty and commitment that will best serve the Coaching process.

How it works – 

We work closely with CEO’S, MD’s & Senior Execs on the best way of choosing the appropriate measures that will best capture the Coaching results.

The process –

How feedback is to be provided to Senior Management re progress from the Coaching programme has to be agreed upon by all parties (at the outset) not just by the company but by all Leaders attending Coaching sessions. Unless Leaders feel 100% comfortable with this arrangement, then they will not fully embrace the process.

Ultimately, the Coach acts almost like a ‘Facilitator’ in a mutually collaborative alliance with either individual or groups of leaders within a company. The Coach works with the Leader(s) in a combined approach to reach desired end-goals or outcomes. 

“For all our Coaching programmes, we get full clarity on what ‘Success’ in the Coaching process looks like for all our clients.”

Effective ‘Leadership Coaching’ can be vital to an organisations long-term health, as Leaders play an integral role in the ever-challenging task of empowering and ultimately retaining talent.

Therefore, our Leadership Coaching focuses primarily on helping –


  • Leaders to embrace their ‘vulnerabilities’ by helping them to step outside the constraints of their own Leadership styles. 
  • Make Leaders feel more valued by their current employer, thereby allowing the client to shape their future ‘Road-mapping’ & ‘Succession-planning’ with the support of more empowered Leadership teams. This could also help to work as an ‘Executive Development’ tool. 
  • To provide Leaders with objective feedback on their performance and management style, which can help highlight ‘blind spots’ ensuring leadership performance is more rounded and positively impacted. 
  • Leaders to become more ‘Accountable’ and comfortable with accepting responsibility for their impact on other people’s performance.
  • To eliminate unhelpful Leadership behavioural patterns which positively impacts teams reporting into them. 
  • To increase charismatic behaviours amongst Leadership, increasing the prevalence of a Growth-mindset in Leadership teams.
