Leading through coaching: delegation, empowerment, empathy, trust
Coaching leaders create engagement, build relationships, and improve the output of the team. They consider themselves successful when their team is successful. They delegate and empower their employees to work on challenging tasks, but they also make sure that they have all the necessary tools to be successful. Coaching leaders have empathy and thus create an environment, where every employee is able to develop his or her strengths. Certainly, there are situations in which leadership through coaching is not appropriate and also will not work. But in the long term, this leadership style helps to avoid exactly these type of situations.
I have more than 25 years of experience in leading and coaching people. I deliberately say people and not employees. Because every employee is an individual person with an individual character, individual goals, individual desires and also individual challenges, conflicts and problems.
I was able to gain my coaching experience in many different areas. As an entrepreneur, as a management consultant and as a manager in different companies with teams of up to three hundred people in an international and multicultural environment. In doing so, I got used to many facets and challenges of classic employee management. But I have also very often been confronted with people’s personal goals and challenges and then I have been much more a personal coach than just a supervisor.
Based on my own experience and a professional coaching education, I would like to work together with you in an individual coaching to help you not just to be a good manager but also an even better coach.
