Calling all leaders! If you want to be in a position of leadership or desire to be a more effective leader then leadership coaching is ideal for you.

Wanting to be a great leader is admirable and achievable but without strategies and appropriate tools, it can be a difficult journey. This is why leadership coaching is vital to your development as a leader in your chosen field.  At Parallel Connections, we work with leaders from all industries to grow their skills and empower them to reach their leadership goals.


What is Leadership Coaching?


 “Leadership coaching is the process whereby an individual learns how to be an effective leader through tailored coaching. Leadership coaching is usually performed via one-on-one sessions with an experienced coach. During sessions, your coach will use a variety of methods to help you enhance or realise your leadership potential. This is done via an analysis of your current leadership skills and may include a review of past performance. Your leadership coach will then set goals with you to formulate a plan for how to achieve these goals.

A leadership coach will support you by creating a plan specific to your needs and goals. Then, armed with your inner compass of leadership self-awareness and clear goals, you can guide your team in new directions. Your coach will help you to review and address any issues along the way. Ensuring that you stay on track is the focus of your leadership coach. They may also provide you with materials for further reading, additional coaching sessions or online learning opportunities. 

 Your role is to decide how you will show up to your coaching sessions. Are you committed to making a positive change? Will you step up and be held accountable for your actions? Your leadership coach will provide feedback and encourage you to get the most from your sessions.

Under Leadership Development – Can Anyone Become a Leader?


Yes, absolutely! Anyone can learn effective and powerful leadership skills. Even successful men and women in leadership roles continually seek out further coaching.

 As world-renowned coach Vince Lombardi famously said:

“Leaders are made, they are not born. They are made by hard effort, which is the price which all of us must pay to achieve any goal that is worthwhile.”

Thankfully, the hard work of becoming a great leader doesn’t have to be done alone. With expert guidance from Parallel Connections, leadership coaching, you can learn how to become a leader that inspires and motivates those around you. 

 Yes, this is possible if you are prepared to change what you are doing so that you achieve a different outcome. The choice is yours to make. 


“You must either modify your dreams or magnify your skills. ”

Benefits of Leadership Coaching


One of the biggest benefits to be gained through leadership coaching is that it advances both your professional and personal development. Other benefits include:

1. A new perspective

Step back from the day to day and refocus on the bigger picture.

2. Learning how to use your mistakes to your advantage

Mistakes happen, but you can use them as a learning opportunity and grow from them.

3. You gain more confidence and become more self-aware

Leadership coaching helps you identify your strengths and talents. With self-awareness you have the ability to focus on your action and align these with your standards – your values.

4. Improved Performance

Coaching encourages improved performance via a combined result of a healthier team dynamics, a better understanding of yourself and others, clearer direction, and enhanced motivation.

5. Improved communication skills

Better communication leads to happier relationships both professionally and personally.

6. New opportunities

When you are empowered to step up and lead with confidence, people take notice! Leadership mentoring can help you achieve that promotion you were wanting or shift into a completely new, exciting direction. 

7. You’ll become a better leader

You’ll be better at identifying your team’s strengths and delegating tasks accordingly and you’ll be better equipped to both lead and support your team.

Engaging a leadership coach to help you push ahead and become a more effective leader is akin to having a sports trainer support you in your fitness goals. Sure, you can attempt to do it yourself, but your results, motivation and timeline are all improved upon by having a leadership coach on your side.


Why Great Leaders Matter?


The single most important skill for managers these days is effective leadership. Without strong leadership, organisations falter; there is no guidance and a lack of direction, motivation and inspiration. 

When an organisation has a great leader at the helm, productivity is higher, team dynamics are better, staff feel more motivated, and profitability and success are improved. As workplaces consistently change and face new challenges, leaders need to remain adaptable and not lose focus. 

Leadership coaching teaches methods for remaining impactful as a leader through significant change and beyond. It enables you to live your life more purposefully and helps you understand what you want, how to pursue it, and help others achieve their goals.  


As Tony Robbins said. 

“Any time you sincerely want to make a change, the first thing you must do is raise your standards.”

Our Success Stories

“I have worked with Daneen Littlejohn over the past 12-months on empowering myself. I value our sessions as Daneen helps keep me accountable for the goals and tasks, and it’s good to have someone give me that extra push to let go of limiting beliefs. Another bonus is letting me come to my own resolution and be responsible for my own goals.

Through every session, Daneen has shown a high level of understanding and commitment to assisting me improve not only my work life, but life as a whole and I can say honestly that I would not have made it through some tough times as positively as I did without her coaching.

Thanks for all your help, Daneen, and I look forward to learning more from you in my next steps with leadership coaching.”
