The Top 10, Wait 9, Leadership Coaching Needs

What would you guess to be the Top 10 most common topics covered in leadership coaching? Maybe we can get Letterman to do a Top 10 list on leadership coaching needs (oh, what humor we could probably find, it wouldn’t take much creativity), but in all seriousness, by reviewing many, many 360° leadership evaluations and coaching individuals on maximizing and improving their performance, here is my list- and I could only get to nine:

  1. Developing Others
  2. Time Management
  3. Delegation
  4. Thinking Strategically
  5. Managing Upwards
  6. Communication
  7. Planning/Organizing
  8. Managing Conflict
  9. Empowering/Motivating Others

I’d love to hear what would be in your Top 10 list of your needs for improvement as a leader, or better yet, what areas you think the person who leads you or manages you needs! Maybe by comparing my list to yours, we can get to 10. And better yet, send them to me in David Letterman style! How would he phrase them?  Email me your list or post it to our Facebook, LinkedIn or Twitter Feed.

Over the next several weeks, we’ll be writing on ways to address these common areas. We’ll phrase them in your Letterman style and add to our list based on your feedback. If we use one of your submissions, we’ll send you a $25 Visa Gift Card. Submit away!
