Leadership Coaching

Leadership is a specific set of behaviours, mind-sets and skills that are elegantly applied in the right contexts to get the very best from yourself and from others.   Decoding and fine-tuning the key skills and behaviours of leadership, applying them appropriately and building the processes and practices of continuous improvement should be the underlying goals of any leadership coaching approach.

Developmental Leadership Coaching Program Summary

Program Overview

The Bigger Game Leadership Coaching program is designed specifically to empower leaders, directors and senior executives in roles in which leadership is critical to success. Phil brings his extensive experience, knowledge and skills to bear to help decode and fine-tune behaviours for high performance leadership and success.

Based upon the leader’s specific goals, as well as dealing with emergent issues and specific challenges that evolve during the program, the skills of leadership and their application are developed to provide the basis for consistent, resilient leadership as the norm. It is not based on using simplistic frames or traits, but bringing a nuanced, mature understanding of how leadership can be created, expressed and made more effective as pragmatic applications are tailored to your unique situation.

For example, for every situation, the leader has to have specific skills, decide how to select them, understand what limits behaviours of themselves and others, and how to make them more effective as the contingencies of the behaviours are modified.

Self-awareness, emotional intelligence, relationship dynamics, advanced communication and influence, decoding behaviours in groups and teams, driving engagement and motivating performance are common elements that often emerge during the course of coaching. Phil’s unique behaviourist approach cuts through the ‘noise’ and helps you play your bigger game as a leader.

Program Length and Timing

Based on 10 ninety minute sessions, the Leadership Coaching program is typically delivered flexibly (with a preference for fortnightly) around the business realities of the coachee. The coaching engagement requires commitment – to step out of your comfort zone (with safety nets) and complete set tasks, adopt and implement new skills and reflect deeply on performance and responses.

Scope of delivery

Phil works with clients across Australia, throughout the Middle East, Europe and the US, and selects the most appropriate mode for the client at that time.
