Leadership development in companies takes many forms – be it training, workshops, sending executives to formal programs in Universities etc. However, one of the forms that is picking up is individualized leadership development through Corporate Coaching and Executive Coaching in India.
Corporate Coaching in Today’s World:
Executive coaching as a means of leadership development focuses on the oft-ignored behavioural competencies that are critical for sustained and wholesome success of senior leaders and companies. Leadership behaviours are not routinely taught in business schools too and while there are training and workshops to acquire knowledge associated with managing and growing business enterprises, managing self especially is assumed to something leaders are somehow expected to be experts at naturally.
Globally, research shows that Executive coaching returns an ROI of $7.9 per one Dollar invested.
Corporate coaching involves companies to engage professionally certified leadership coaches to partner with their senior leaders, individually and/or as a team, to enable achievement of specific and significant business results.
The VUCA world offers continuous and ongoing complex challenges to corporate leaders. The need for speed and growth in the ever changing world, operating in a global environment with different work cultures and time zones, coupled with the innately competitive environments at work, lead to stress and burnout for its leaders. As leaders grow in corporate hierarchies, the capabilities and behaviours that helped them grow, no longer serve them well in their new roles with expanded and complex expectations.
