Why is ‘Leader as Coach approach’ is so impactful?

Gifted leadership involves a combination of feeling and thought. How people feel about working at an organisation, can account for a significant part of the organisation’s business performance. In turn, how employees perceive the organisational climate can be traced to the action of the leader.

Leader as Coach style leads to an outstandingly positive emotional response and better results, almost irrespective to the other styles, a leader employs. Through personal conversations with employees, corporate coaching leaders establish rapport and trust. Such leaders delegate and give employees challenging assignments that stretch them. These leaders are tolerant towards failures.

This style of leadership is most effective with employees who show more initiative and want more professional development. Good coaches effectively communicate a belief in people’s potential and an expectation that they can do their best.
