Make the behavioural changes required to thrive

Leaders are expected to be visionary, adaptive, collaborative, engaging and great problem solvers, as well as drive and deliver results – even in the tough times. This intense pressure and scrutiny can lead to stress, anxiety and poor performance.

Changes in organisational hierarchies, take-overs, restructures and transformation requires tough conversations with team members. Positional power does not ensure that leaders have the capacity and mindset to deal with these issues. We find that many senior leaders have been elevated due to their subject matter expertise and lack the core communication, resilience, presentation, public speaking and leadership skills and experience required to thrive in their positions. Without direct guidance, goal setting and support they can flounder.

Avoid burnout and realise potential with leadership coaching

A personalised executive coaching program from The Colin James Method® provides your leaders with a supportive, challenging, informative and confidential environment in which
to build capability. We work with a variety of senior leaders throughout Australia to build a lasting change; coaching them for a new role, assisting them through a restructure, preparing them for an official enquiry or supporting them to improve
decision-making and maintain energy levels in a fast-paced environment.
