There are so many books and articles out there on how to be a good leader. One aspect that a lot of the authors seem to forget about is coaching. I’m not talking about leaders getting professional coaching (that’s a given). I’m talking about the importance of leaders coaching their teams.
If you want to get the best out of your people, you have to put in the time and effort to coach them. And you need a framework to make that coaching as effective as possible.
If you have the right skills, attitude and framework, coaching can completely transform your business. Instead of telling your team members what they need to do, coaching helps them come to their own emotional truths. And that not only inspires innovation, it boosts productivity, success and job satisfaction.
Investing the time and effort into coaching creates a supportive team environment where collaboration reigns and each person is kept accountable. And as we know, accountability is one of the core elements of a successful business. By coaching your team and being available to them, you’re telling them – I care about your professional development. I want to get the best out of you. And I want you to get the best out of yourself. In short, you’re lighting a fire in their bellies and making them aim higher.

Like Brendan, I believe that high performance has nothing to do with genetics or personality traits and everything to do with conscious and consistent effort. Inspired by Brendan’s model, I focus on building my team’s high performance habits using the following framework:
Leadership trends will change over time but one truth will always remain – that in order to get the best out of people, you need to invest in their professional development, job satisfaction, collaboration and accountability. The perfect way to do this is through considered and consistent coaching.
