Most leaders operate in time scarce, results focused, deadline driven environments. They are required to be resilient, agile, think fast and make quick decisions but suffer from limited time to think. Coaching offers leaders the time to think for themselves, about themselves; time to think effectively about their leadership priorities, challenges, personal and business goals.

Results driven leadership is a distinctive coaching approach that connects personal development and leadership purpose with individual outcomes and business results. 

It’s an approach that aligns individual, team and organisational performance and goals, by focusing on enhancing the individual’s leadership capability, courage and effectiveness in the context of wider organisational priorities. This ensures leaders focus on where they can add most value, engage others and impact business results. 

Each coaching programme is underpinned by four key principles:

Leadership development

Helping individuals to develop self-awareness and acquire the skills, capabilities and behaviours that today’s leaders require to be effective and achieve results.

Outcome focus

Focusing on development outcomes, to create capable and credible leaders that engage and inspire others by demonstrating confidence, courage, communication and effective collaboration.

Evolution and excellence

A clear developmental process that engages the individual to explore who they are, evolves their leadership style and capability and helps them to excel in their role as leader, now and as the organisation evolves.

Results driven

Initial three-way contracting between the individual, sponsor and coach ensures that personal development goals are aligned to team and organisational goals and measurable results are achieved.

Sara works with executives, senior and middle managers to be their best, whether enhancing performance in an existing role or making the transition to a new leadership, strategic or executive role or first Board appointment.

Programme features and outcomes

Using a clear framework for support, individuals are given time to think, in a confidential environment. Established theoretical techniques are combined with fresh thinking, to create a unique and flexible model, with the ability to ‘dance in the moment’.
