Coaching is recognised as one of the most important and essential leadership skills within education.*
Many leaders experience loneliness and a high sense of vulnerability.
At times they are in conflict with ‘those above’ and unable to lead with their heart as well as their head.
Sometimes this misalignment in values or beliefs is a threat to their future!
Leaders need someone neutral to support and challenge them, so that they can be creative and insightful in their positions of responsibility.
Coaching can have a highly positive impact on the self-belief and confidence of those in positions of leadership, which in turn impacts on the support and development they give others in the organisation.
