A Training & Consultant Business For Leadership Coaching
Practice Five is a training and consultancy business providing leadership coaching for those who need to develop the habits of highly effective leaders in a hurry. Our business leadership coaching condenses a lifetime or two of observation into simple methods you can follow to bring out your full leadership potential.
Quite simply, coaching and leadership are not mutually exclusive. Great leaders did not start out that way, although some people have higher natural aptitude for the role. In every case it is essential to have some foundation upon which the leadership potential can bear fruit.
A natural born leader without any education will be ineffective because while he or she may be able to inspire others to take action, their decisions will not be informed ones.
Conversely somebody who is highly educated but has little aptitude for leadership will also be ineffective in a leadership role because he or she may know exactly what to do, but not how to properly motivate a team to get the job done.
On the topic of leadership, Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery once said, “Get your major purpose clear, take off your plate all which hinders that purpose and hold hard to all which helps it, and then go ahead with a clear conscience, courage, sincerity, and selflessness.”
Obviously FM Montgomery’s remarks were intended for digestion by military leaders, but the civilian leader would certainly prosper from understanding these remarks and incorporating them into their personal leadership style.
In essence the meaning of the remarks can be interpreted as:
- Set clear goals
- Delegate those tasks which hinder your purpose
- Always act with integrity
- Have faith (the courage to see things through)
- Be sincere in your effort and your dealings with others
- Avoid selfish endeavours. Make your efforts for the greater good
Obviously a leader who can act with these principles as foundations of their leadership style will earn the respect and willing effort of subordinates, while also having the best chance of being recognised and rewarded by superiors or by public sentiment for courageous and astute leadership.
This is a good start, but there is so much more you can learn about leadership and later put that learning to use for you.
