Hard as it may be to believe, the new year is just around the corner, and as your organization prepares to enter 2022 strongly, there’s never been a better time to take account of your team and any potential areas for improvement. Fostering effective leadership from within is one of the most valuable assets you can give yourself, as well as your team members, and one of the best ways to unearth the true potential of your top performers is by utilizing leadership training.

Designed to help your team confront their challenges, as well as recognize and hone their strengths alongside acquiring valuable skillets that are sure to benefit your organization as a whole, leadership training (also known as executive coaching) is a valuable way to set your employees up for success and build your organization from the inside. Pivot HR is proud to offer coaching services and leadership development to clients across Canada and to help you make the most of the coming year with a team that’s supercharged and ready to succeed. Below, we’ll cover five of the major leadership skills often covered in coaching sessions. Read on to learn more!

1. Coaching

Many of your top performers may have burgeoning leadership traits, but in order to truly equip them to help their peers and direct reports, coaching skills are a necessity. The transition from leading by example to partnering with a direct report to cultivate their skills and development is delicate and requires careful training in order to do so properly. Executive coaching helps to refine constructive feedback skills and empowers participants to learn how to help their peers rise up to meet daily challenges.

2. Accountability

The most successful mentors are those that know how to own their mistakes and take accountability for the performance of their team. Managers and leaders are no longer held as individual contributors, but rather are viewed through the successes, and the failures, of the team(s) they lead. Executive coaching imparts the importance of this kind of accountability as well as how to wield it to everyone’s benefit.

3. Change Management

Life moves fast, and as we’ve all experienced, there are more than a few curveballs that can come your way when you least expect it. In a professional sense, even the most momentary of disruptions can feel significant to a team, especially those with newer additions that have yet to fully integrate into the overall culture. Teaching your leaders-in-training how to not only embrace sudden changes but to harness them and create an opportunity out of a challenge is an invaluable asset that secures the safety and happiness of your organization and team members for the future.

4. Inspiration

It’s no secret that one of the biggest challenges as a manager is inspiring your team to rise to the level you need them to perform at. Without the proper training and resources at hand, it can feel overwhelming to try and lead your crew towards objectives, especially when you may be facing external challenges that you have little control over. Leadership training teaches participants how to inspire and guide authentically, no matter the circumstances at hand.

5. Communication

Finally, a team isn’t much of a team without effective communication. Knowing how to communicate from a position of leadership without excluding or alienating anyone is no small feat, and with the proper training at hand, your leaders will be able to do so effectively.
