Coaching has been at the core of many LGMA programmes over past years. LGMA is now making its coaching expertise available to individuals on a standalone basis.
LGMA’s experienced coaches offer insight, perspective and tools to assist in working through the challenges of leading and managing people and teams. All sessions are grounded in an understanding of the local government context.
If you need assistance working through the challenges you face leading and managing teams, one on one coaching with someone outside your organisation can help you gain perspective and develop new approaches.
Or maybe you are someone who is always looking to improve and constantly seek s new ideas and tools to add to your toolkit? Spend time with a coach who can share what others in similar situations are doing, current best practice trends and, importantly, the ‘why’ of people’s behaviour and responses.
For Your Team
Perhaps someone in your team needs advice and outside reinforcement? LGMA can assist, supporting your staff to work through challenges and apply new approaches.
