Business and leadership coaching is another popular area for clients, in particular those with businesses or in leadership roles within a larger business.

Business coaching programs are specifically designed to meet the needs of each organisation or the individual involved and can include focus areas like:
Psychologists and health professionals are recognising that the key to success lies not in “IQ”, but in “EQ”. Emotional intelligence is often the key to a person’s success in business, communication and relationships with colleagues. Building capacity in the area of emotional intelligence can assist employees to demonstrate greater personal responsibility, manage their feelings, handle stress, become more self-aware in the workplace.
Assertiveness is not aggression. Assertiveness is a critical skill to master within any workplace to enable employees to have the confidence and the ability to speak up for themselves and discriminate between passive, aggressive and assertive behaviour and understand the consequences of each. Assertive communication skills benefit everyone in both their personal and professional lives.
Developing a positive and effective leadership style is essential for anyone wanting to succeed. By working through aspects of leadership employees can gain a clear understanding of: – The role and responsibilities of a leader; – Leadership styles and theories; – Qualities and characteristics of successful leaders and how to foster them for themselves; – Why some leaders fail and avoiding the same traps; The basics of delegation, motivation and monitoring staff performance; – Empowering and inspiring staff; – Leading change; and – Emotional Intelligence in leadership.
