Engaging a leadership coach is a sign of strength.

If you analyse the success of great sporting teams they are often lead by a great coach. All the players on the field have the talent and understanding of the game, but the coach is the one that sees the big picture, the way in which the team can come together to create the result. If you consider yourself the coach of your team, who is coaching you?

Engaging a leadership coach is a sign of strength.

When we look at leadership from a human perspective there is no doubt capability plays a huge part in success. But so much of that success comes from the way you lead, being self-aware, in service of others and being clear on your vision.

To be a leader is to serve others, the bi-product is your fulfilment.

3 reasons leadership coaching works

1

Your coach can see the things you can’t, the kinks in your armour.

2

They can be the voice of reason when the self-talk becomes too much.

3

They can share experiences that can help you move forward more efficiently.

What your leadership coach should not be.

While we don’t want to focus on the negatives of leadership, we need to understand what tools we have in our armoury and how they best serve us. A coach is not there to be a shoulder to cry on or a punching bag. They are there to hold up a mirror to your leadership and show you what to look for.

After all, leadership can be a thankless task and you need to know yourself more than anyone else to lead others. Self-awareness and personal growth not only benefit you but those around you.

Your success will come from your most difficult challenges.

Meet your leadership coach, Grant Difford, Founder of Waking Giants.

The first question I should answer is what qualifies me to be coaching other leaders? None, apart from the fact I have lived and breathed every experience that a leader will go through and have developed tools and a mindset to navigate them. So much of leadership is about the ability with your perception of self-value – ie am I strong enough to get the team through.

Growing up in a military environment for the first 18 years of my life I was exposed to leadership in the most extreme of circumstances in a world alien to many. As an only child, I was forced to learn hard lessons in resilience and self-management, tools that serve me to this day.

Since the earliest days of my professional and then business career I have been a student of leadership in both teams and myself. The extraordinary set of tools you need to be a great leader only come with experience, not just theory. I have found leadership lessons at board level in business and education, endurance racing and representing New Zealand at the World Triathlon Championships.

All of that experience has led me to coach leaders in career change, long term growth strategy and simply how to make it all come together and leave room for ‘real life’.

Get inspired by The Leadership Diaries.

The Leadership Diaries Logo

I believe great leadership comes from a place of vulnerability and self-awareness. The Leadership Diaries is a podcast and Daily emails that take the real experiences of leadership and normalise them. Why? Because we are all just trying to do the best we can with what we have and that isn’t always easy.

In my weekly podcast, I pull it all apart and share what many of us leaders struggle with, the daily responsibility for those around us. The Leadership Diaries are a brutal and open account of my journey so we can build greater understanding and improve our leadership experience, together.
