3 Principles of Effective Leadership Coaching

Coaching requires more than interpersonal savvy and business acumen. Coaches are in the business of candor. In order to be effective, a coach must use data as a guide to point leaders in the right direction. Coaching for performance means using strong behavioral assessments that can be translated into action. In fact, the most widely used assessments in coaching are 360-degree feedback surveys, which provide a solid base from which to assess the coachee’s perceived behavior within an organization.
In a thorough coaching process, these assessments are generally supplemented with strong psychometric evaluations. Coaching aims to bring hidden (or even known) truths about the leader’s behaviors to the surface and facilitate change that is supported by realistic data. This is a complex process that requires:

  1. An in-depth knowledge of how to use assessments in coaching
  2. Basic understanding of motives for change
  3. A model and approach that produces measurable outcomes
