Why Leadership Coaching Matters

A leadership coach is a highly trained professional who partners with you on your developmental journey. You may be looking for a guide who can open up new perspectives, supporting you in new ways of doing and being as a leader. Perhaps you want a fellow explorer who will support and challenge you to uncover assumptions and limiting beliefs that influence work with diverse stakeholders. You might need a reflective space to purposefully tune into what’s most important for you and the systems in which you work. Whatever you are seeking in coaching, your coach will design with you how best to work together to support your development.

.Our developmental coaching supports and challenges you toward transformational leadership, and encourages:

Self Awareness

See where you and the systems that you lead are in terms of their developmental journey – where there are strengths, challenges and opportunities to grow.

Systemic Awareness

Grow your capacity to nurture the powerful relationships that are at the heart of any meaningful change – including the relationship you have with yourself.


Gain insight into how you uniquely re-source yourself through reflection, sensory awareness and other techniques.



What will leadership coaching do for you?

  • Reconnect to the purpose, principles and practices which influence you and those you lead
  • Improve the effectiveness of your team to collaborate to innovate
  • Intentionally work with the process of change across diverse stakeholder groups
  • Consider, adjust and challenge the status quo
  • Deepen your capacity to influence systemic transformation
  • Re-source yourself and your organization to be transforming

Adaptive, innovative coaching

Novalda’s coaching sessions are experiential, working on both the conscious and unconscious levels. We often lean into movement, metaphor and play in order to facilitate exploration. By observing what is actually happening and what is emerging with the leader or team, the coaching can respond to what is needed in the moment. Our coaching techniques adapt to suit a range of learning styles and developmental stages. Depending on whether we are coaching an individual or team, we leave room for a combination of introspection, paired work, small group and large group work.


Sustainable impact
