If you’re at mid-career stage, looking to develop as a leader you might use coaching to work on specific skills, such as delegation, time management, business development or broadening your strategic perspective. But I’d also encourage you to look at who you really are and what kind of leader you’re going to be.
Nobody is good at all aspects of leadership, so work out where your greatest contribution will be. Are you a big picture strategist? Are you red hot at operational delivery, are you a fantastic relationship builder? How will you capitalise on these strengths, what level can you get your weaker areas up to and who do you need to work with to pick up on the bits where you’re never going to shine? A developmental assessment is a really useful way of exploring your potential.
