We don’t drive cars without mirrors to see where we have been or without headlights to see where we are going. Leading without coaching is like driving with your headlights off on a road you don’t know you are on.

360 Leadership Assessment
360 leadership assessment is a process that allows leaders to receive anonymous feedback from a range of people they work with. The feedback collected is used as part of a coaching engagement with a professionally qualified developmental leadership coach.
The feedback is used as part of a coaching engagement assisting leaders to develop greater awareness of how others experience them. The feedback informs developmental goal setting to build greater leadership capability.
When dressing in the morning, we look in the mirror before leaving for work. Why do we do this? To make sure we look presentable and to make a deliberate impression on the world about who we are and what we value.
Team coaching is the breath of fresh air needed in a market flooded with training, workshops and management love ins. Team coaching is an evidence-based approach to build internal capability by leveraging the talent within the team creating a culture of performance.
Like Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz who already possessed the power to succeed but did not know it. Teams need to learn this for themselves. This is the essence of great team coaching; the answer is on the inside.
Why do we need team coaching? More and more work has increased in complexity, and teams are required to make the outcomes a reality. Teams are now the way we work. Who wants to work in a dysfunctional one?
