Coaching Supports the Development of Great Leaders
Peace Country – Two local Coaches offer support to Leaders in the Peace Country through support, training and individual Coaching.
I know that Great Leaders are grown from the inside out. Great Leaders take time to learn about who they are, what they stand for and what they believe in. They are curious about how their leadership style impacts others and want to know how they can have the most positive effect on their teams and in their work. Coaching is a great place to start both this internal look at self and to increase a Leader’s awareness of their impact on the world around them.

Organizations are only as strong as the people at the top. In today’s fast-paced, ever-changing world, leaders need to set the pace and direction for success. Leaders grow other leaders by investing in themselves and their staff. By becoming a leader that others want to follow, everyone wins! One way to achieve this success for the leader, the staff and the organization is through coaching. It really can make a positive difference!
Cindy Millar Chief People Officer, Caisse Horizon Credit Union
Leadership is a passion for both of us. We believe strongly that Leaders become Great Leaders by growing themselves. They never stop bringing in new information, learning, applying it to themselves and evaluating the results and then doing it all over again. Great Leaders realize that they are the ones who set the tone in an organization and as such need to be on top of their game.
There are two key ways to grow. First, learn more. Take training, read or attend sessions. With the variety of learning modes these days, where we live no longer is a valid reason to not continue with training. A second great way to grow is through Coaching. A coach helps you to look at taking in all you know and applying it or figuring out why it is that you struggle so hard to apply it. Coaching grows leader exponentially!
In honor of National Coaching Week May 20 - 26, and to assist with your learning and growing your two local ICF Certified Coaches have put together a list of 12 of our favorite Leadership books:
We hope you have the opportunity to pick up one or two and apply them to your own Leadership. The Peace River Municipal Library has agreed to look into purchasing some of these books so that they are available to everyone. And if you ever want to talk about what you’ve learned in them, feel free to reach out to either of us for a conversation. We love to talk more about developing leadership.
