Leadership skills are a crucial part of being a successful manager or entrepreneur. You want to motivate both yourself and your team to improve productivity, increase sales and enhance overall performance. Developing these skills is essential for both personal and small business or corporate growth. Without effective leadership, organisations both small and large will fail to thrive.
No individual ever created a significant improvement in their career or small business without becoming a better leader. But that can't happen overnight. So how can you begin making positive changes and start to make your vision a reality?
You’ll need to develop the mindset and skill set and a plan that will take you to the next level.
Are you jeopardising our own success by doing things in the same old way but expecting different results? We get so caught up in our day to day life and career, that we forget to take a step back and reflect and consider new ways of doing things.
Instead of building our leadership skills, we fall into the trap of doubting ourselves and become frustrated.
"Do I need a career change?"
“Would my small business organisation be more profitable if I were a better leader?
"Do I need more professional skills or better play to my strengths?"
"Why aren't I as good as my competitors or the other senior leaders in my organisation?"
We compare ourselves to others instead of focusing on what's most important: our own personal development. The learning pathway will vary from one manager to another depending on personality, leadership style, strengths and weaknesses, the type of small business or organisation, job title and so on. The goal however is similar. To play to your strengths and provide the insights and skills you need to become the best version of yourself in your career or business... and in the process, a better leader.
So, how do you know what personal development path to follow?
You work with someone like me, a professional development career coach. With a bespoke coaching programme to meet your circumstances and requirements, I can provide you with the support and guidance you need to achieve your goals, improve your performance and become the best leader you can be. As someone who has been through the trials and tribulations of entrepreneurship and invested in coaching for myself, I understand just how a coaching journey can help you achieve everything you've ever dreamt of.
Whether you’ve started your own business, work as an executive or want to take your career to the next level, the right coach can help you reach your goals more effectively.
The reality is, being a high performer is never going to be easy, especially in the London environment. The daily challenges of an executive and leaders in general can be extremely tiring, and that's without general life to contend with. You're expected to be determined, an excellent communicator, bring passion and meet deadlines and help move things forward on a daily basis. But how can you lead from the front without burning out?
This is where my coaching skills will help. With a range of coaching packages available, I help business leaders, executives and business owners make long lasting positive change. My sessions are designed to help you focus on what matters to you whilst developing the skill set needed for a successful career.
Executive coaching doesn't mean I'll hold your hand to the top. No great coach can do that for you. As an executive coach, my job is to provide you with guidance in my coaching sessions to discover the way forward that suits you. Agree action points and hold you accountable step by step. This process involves helping you build the leadership skills you need to progress in both your career and personal life. It will involve listening, asking questions, offering new ideas, helping you gain clarity of your vision and to build a leadership style that plays to your strengths.
All leaders have a certain confidence about them. They live life to the fullest, motivate their peers and face challenges head-on. As an executive coach, I can help you develop leadership skills that will improve your confidence and thereby boost you to reach your full potential.
From previous coaching conversations with clients, I've seen an improvement in confidence almost instantly. I've seen executives throughout the UK change the way they live their lives, engaging everyday challenges for greater passion and a process in place to achieve the career they want
As a career coach I make it my responsibility to help you get where you want in life. My coaching programme will be fully tailored to your needs, focusing on where you are with your career or small business and where you see yourself one or several years from now. Focusing on developing skills such as communication and confidence, I can make sure your skill set is suitable for any executive role, should you make a career change down the line.
Based in London and working on a one to one basis with clients in the Brighton to Greater London corridor and UK wide, I’ve helped hundreds of business owners, leaders and executives think differently, do things differently and be more productive and happy in their work.
By combining my business qualifications (DMS & MBA), 5 years of counselling and psychotherapy training (Person Centred and Transactional Analysis) and getting on for four decades in the business world, I can work with you to align your small business, career and personal goals to help you get to where you want to be.
Although there are many coaches out there, I truly believe there are very few that offer such a tailored coaching approach to the needs of each individual client as I do.
"I met Jason at a networking event and straight away I found him to be very easy to talk to and I felt immediately at ease with him. I booked a session with him and I can honestly say that now, after several sessions, I have truly found a way forward for myself and my business. After a simple question about what it was that I actually wanted, it opened the flood gates to a huge amount of possibility that was there but I hadn’t had the courage to tap into. The coaching really helped me to find perspective and clear clouds that were thick and heavy in my mind about tackling challenges and moving forward . It’s fair to say that the clarity and confidence that I have gained from Jason’s business coaching has been invaluable. Thank you Jason!!"
"Try some learning about YOU! I set up Dominic Hill Chartered Accountants in 1992. I understand what it is like to be a small business because I am one. Sometimes you need someone outside your business with no pre-conceived ideas to open your mind to find out what you really want to achieve for yourself and also for your business and in that order. Once you have recognised what you want to achieve you can reset the destination in your life sat nav and set out in that direction. You shouldn’t and can’t re-set the sat nav without stopping to breath. Jason gives you the room to breath, think and then….. move Jason has been really motivating and he makes me smile. I really enjoy the meetings. I thoroughly recommend that you start with a 3 month program because like learning anything you need at least that span of time to really start to open your eyes. Why should learning about YOU be any different?"
As a UK executive or small business owner, the route to become a better business leader is through my services. As your career coach, I can help you on your professional development journey, focusing on the skills you need for career success and holding you accountable each step of the way.
