Coaching for Peak Leadership Performance


In an emotionally intelligent, functional team, being a leader and a coach is every team member’s role. Teams that have clear purpose, a passion for the work and are having real issue conversations, become accountable, highly functional teams. Thomas Leonard, founder of the business coaching concept, taught that "every coach needs a coach."

Experience coaching and being coached, while practicing the core needs of any team: having a purpose/vision and aligned passions. Return to work as a leader, ready to coach team members so that they have coaching experiences and can then do peer coaching, helping the team to build emotional intelligence and stay focused and accountable.
