Let’s take a minute to discuss to talk about leadership coaching for executives. Most business owners and managers have been exposed to some of the concepts around leadership coaching. That includes the ability to move from being a manager to being a leader
From a Manager to a Leader
A manager is someone who directs people, who points them to a task and holds them accountable to complete it. However, a leader is someone who:
- Has willing followers
- Empathizes more deeply
- Understands the language and minds of their coworkers
In short, leaders have the ability to make people they work with trust them. The greater employees ability to trust their teammates reduces defenses.

Leaders Become Coaches
The best part is that leaders in turn become coaches themselves for the people in their company or organization. As you pass on what you have learned in your own leadership coaching, the people you work with will come to:
- Trust you more
- Relax their defensiveness
- Open up
- Bring more to you
Your team will become better able to become effective leaders under your leadership. This gives executive coaching an especially high return on investment. The managers and supervisors who work with a professional executive and leadership coach can pass on their knowledge and skills to the rest of their team.
