The YouLead Coaching Model integrates scientific and research based  insights into practical and easy to understand concepts and exercises for direct application in your daily leadership practice. Change is experiential and explains itself to you. 

Boost your Leadership Quality

Leadership is not depending on a formal position or authority. Therefore, developing leadership quality in any role within an organization will foster personal and professional effectiveness and career development. Even in an expert role with very specialized knowledge, leadership and the quality of interaction with others improves the personal contribution to the organization by creating innovative solutions and achieving better results in collaboration with others. Being able to have difficult and controversal discussions without getting blocked by conflicts and broadening the personal influence ensures professional success in a way that is authentic to you.

It is expected from executives that they achieve a certain organizational outcome with their leadership and managerial effectiveness, be it business result driven, vision and strategy development, implementing change, developing business, innovation, organizational and people development and many more expected achievements. Leaders are required to achieve results through the contribution of others. Command and control is to be replaced by co-creative and community centric approaches.

We use the revolutionary model for socially intelligent leadership of Linda Kohanov center stage in the coaching process on what we can learn from powerful herd animals on non-predatory power, strength, collaboration and social intelligence for the (self)-leadership of free and interdependant individuals forming communities and modern organizations with adaptability and innovation power in times of rapid changes, thriving towards sustainable and future-proof well-being. From this model of Empowered & Balanced Leadership, we connect to relevant concepts and methods in leadership.

The coaching process focuses on your very specific goals, depending on your unique challenge or ambition. There are however principles that always will be respected.

  • Be always true to yourself
  • Be clear on your intention
  • Be flexible in your leadership approach for the best possible outcome
  • Be effective in navigating and shaping organizational culture
  • Be clear when to lead and when to manage
  • Be aware of your sweet spot in leadership which maximizes your contribution
