Coaching is a powerful process to support personal and leadership development and career progression. Different from, but complementary to, mentoring, coaching provides a confidential space where you work with a qualified experienced Executive Coach to clarify your goals, prioritise your focus, commit to bold action and identify obstacles that are holding you back. Coaching enables you to identify and leverage your strengths, mitigate your weaknesses and develop your capability to transition effectively into a top leadership role. Coaching tends to be more task-orientated and of a shorter duration than mentoring and some leaders find it helpful. Organisations that POWERful Women are aware of that work in this area are given on the right-hand side.
