Leadership Development

As the competitive landscape changes, so do Leadership competencies. Some of the critical forces that are shaping leadership competencies today are:

globalization, the information age, the need for flexible organizations and teams as well as differing employee needs.

The new global environment, often referred to us VUCA brings with it volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity requiring a more collaborative approach.

We believe that an effective model of leadership is a learning environment that unlocks the entire organization’s human capital potential.

What makes a leader at tactical, operational and strategic levels in a business?

Some essential leadership roles cross all levels include: change manager, relationship/network builder and talent developer.

A common leadership derailer includes a leader’s reluctance to tackle self development and other people development issues. CoachMatching understands the importance of buy in to achieve significant and sustainable personal development.  We also appreciate the enormous challenge personal development presents especially for leaders who have a track record of delivery.

The first question we often observe is, ”Why do I need to change, I’ve been doing pretty well up to now?”

Our approach and process is designed to obtain critical buy in at each step and is based on the principle that the leader is effective and this process is about building on successes rather than suggesting anything is "wrong".

Demands on today's leaders and those of the next generation will continue to grow.   CoachMatching is committed to developing the leadership bench-strength our clients will need to ensure competitive success in the coming years. We incorporate coaching and mentoring into our leadership programs to support learning.

Benefits of Leadership Development:

“Companies with strategic leadership programs can see significant business impacts - including triple-digit improvements in leadership strength, leader retention and employee retention.”   Research report, Bersin and Associates.

The same study found that 53% of surveyed organizations now face leadership shortages, most of which are at the mid-management and director level. According to respondents, the biggest business drivers for leadership development programs are to increase the pool of internal leadership candidates (44%), to reduce gaps in leadership skills (42%), and to grow leaders more quickly (35%).

Our experience with clients has indicated that those who have invested in high quality leadership development programs have realised significant business benefits, which include:

  • An increase in overall business impact from leadership development
  • Improvement in leadership strength
  • Improvement in leader engagement and retention
  • Improvement in overall employee retention.

One of the key criterions for success for the business is in how well the leadership development programs are designed and executed.
