Guide
Due to the necessity of having skillful and knowledgeable leaders in the government, private
and industrial sectors, there are universities these days that are offering leadership
development programs and coaching to qualified students in Australia. In fact, leadership is
largely viewed as an essential element in the success of an organization. This being the case, let
us look at the significance and related areas of leadership.

1.    THE CHARACTERISTICS OF A GOOD LEADER. In a one of the management consulting
sessions in Perth, one learns that a good leader possesses the following traits: able to transmit
the group's vision so that the rest of the personnel may be inspired by it and be part of it;
create a conducive working condition for everyone in the company; act as a model in promoting
good behavior among the people in the organization; and able to link the group to the outside
world.

2. THE NEED FOR LEADERSHIP COACHING. Leadership training is very important, especially so
because leadership is a very comprehensive term. The essence of coaching is to enhance the
individual's potentials, so he or she may be armed completely in times of challenges and
difficulties. In the future, a well-developed individual has high tendency to be a part in a pool of
leaders in big industries. More importantly, a fully-equipped leader is able to influence others,
so that the latter may themselves be a leader too.

3.     THE EFFICIENCY OF LEADERSHIP COACHING. The effectiveness of a program about
leadership development is measured based on a number of key points. First, the coaching
program is tailored to the company's vision and mission, culture and structural strategy, and
objectives in general. Second, it ensures that the company personnel and staff are motivated to
join the coaching sessions, and thereafter, able to apply the things they learned. Third, the
program is able to provide assistance and hands-on skills to the company's personnel. Finally,
the development program has built-in follow up strategies in order to monitor the progress of
their clients.

4. THE EFFICIENCY OF A PROGRAM COACH. In one of the leadership trainings, as well as in
other development courses in Perth, there are the so-called program coaches and facilitators.
They are responsible in running the entire course while ensuring the completion of the required
subjects and trainings. A good coach or a competent facilitator must possess the following
characteristics: acts as a role model for leadership abilities, traits, and skills; has a good
understanding of the proper attributes of leadership and how to influence other people thru it;
and portrays confidence and creativity.

The growth and development of the various sectors of society, e.g. private and government, is
largely dependent on leaders that this world produces. Not everyone is qualified to be a great
leader, but each one of us has the potential to be a leader. The only thing important is to
discover, develop, and enhance our abilities thru leadership development trainings and
programs.
