As a young girl, Sumbo believed that if you put your whole heart into something, believed you could achieve it, and if you were willing to take laser focus action, then you could attain your goals. Listen to interview


Who Will You Coach?

Leadership coaches work with clients in a range of settings as in house coaches within organisations, as external contractors delivering staff development programs and as independent executive or CEO coaches working either face to face or via phone. With your background and prior experience you can coach executives within a particular industry, coach individuals or coach groups.  If you are coaching by phone you can be located anywhere in the world and take your business with you as you travel. Executive and leadership coaching is an incredibly rewarding career that can get you out of the rat race and into a career where you can help to develop great leaders, teams and organisations.

As a leadership coach you will work with people on a range of issues. But no matter what leadership coaching niche you choose you will most likely be working with clients on some of the following issues:

- workplace relationship challenges
- stress & overwhelm
- work life balance issues
- clarifying company vision & direction
- organisational change
- blue sky thinking

What Sort of Coach Will You Be?

Before you hang out your shingle as a coach, we highly recommend you spend time working out what sort of coach you will be, who your clients will be and how you will connect with them.  As part of ICA's Coach Training we support you with all these things.  Some students begin their studies and develop this along the way, while others already have an idea that they they further develop during their training.  By the time each student graduates they are 'coach ready' with their own coaching model, niche and power tool.  Find out more about how niching can support you to get clients
