Leading a school today is one of the hardest and most stressful jobs in the workplace
and in the world at large. Headteachers and school leaders have few places to seek
out advice and personal guidance and are often the last in an institution to have
coaching or support for their ‘well being’. It does not have to be that way!
At Leadercoach, we have life coaching advisors who are very experienced school leaders,
who know and understand the pressures, stresses and anxieties that such roles can
impose on an individual.Our coaching advisors can therefore ‘ask the right question’
to assist the client to move positively forward, reduce anxiety and reach personal
Life coaching has been found to be highly successful in this field and has helped
many school leaders to prioritise workloads, decide clear objectives for themselves,
have new perspectives on stressful situations, and it has brought them personal piece
of mind. Clients have been able to maintain motivation, tackle difficult situations
with confidence, reduce stress and anxiety, and with the help of life coaching identify
and celebrate the successes in their role as school leaders.
One of our specialist areas of life coaching services is to assist clients who are
not resident in the UK. We do this using VOIP Internet telephony services such as
Skype. Coaching is carried out via the Internet, and there is no charge for the call
provided both client and coach have the software installed.This is particularly successful
for clients living in situations where life coaching is not available.
Leadercoach has developed expertise using this telephony to provide life coaching
services to international Headteachers, Directors and school leaders. These people
are frequently not in the best supportive situations, due to the unique workplaces
and pressures of their roles but Leadercoach is now available to them.
