Maximize the potential of your leaders by providing the opportunity for leadership improvement. Leadership development consulting includes two components: leadership skills training and leadership coaching and mentoring. Leadership skills training are critical to help potential leaders understand their leadership style as well as skills needed to close performance gaps. An external leadership consultant offers organization insights from outside the organization. These can include performance skills such as communication techniques, conflict management, project management, financial planning, strategic development, and talent management.

In addition to skill building, leadership development consultants also provide coaching and mentoring services. Coaching is the process of offering skills and performance feedback in a one-on-one situation. Leadership coaches can provide the support and information needed by a leader as they move up the corporate ladder. Leaders can depend on coaches to help them discover blind spots, work toward attaining goals, and learn critical skills. Many leaders rely on a formal mentoring relationship with a leadership consultant to drive effective performance results. A mentoring relationship is different from a coaching relationship. The difference lies in the level of expertise of the leadership consultant and strategic planning consultant. Most mentoring relationships are based on the expertise of the mentor. Mentors typically come from areas of expertise that the leader needs. For example, a leadership mentor can help a leader navigate the terrain in a given sector.

Developing leaders in today’s marketplace is an important task, as a leadership shortage is predicted within the next ten years. The need for consultants to help develop leaders is an important undertaking. Bur emerging leaders as well as veteran leaders can benefit from leadership consulting. Emerging leaders benefit by developing new skills, and veteran leaders benefit by refreshing their pallet of skills. Many leadership consultants tailor their training to fit the needs of the specific leaders. For example, a leader may need emphasis on one area over another. An excellent leadership consultant offers tailor-made training to fit that particular need. Often, the training can be delivered in the classroom, on the internet or in written format. A workbook often complements the training to allow the leader to record thoughts and skills as they develop.

Sometimes, a skills needs assessment helps a consultant determine the best way forward. A personal development plan can help guide a structured process to help improve leadership skills for the leader. The process of benchmarking helps the consultant and leader determines when goals are met. Together, a leader and consultant can form a strong bond that helps to drive the development of the leader forward. This paper has reviewed the important need that organizations have for leadership consultants. It has reviewed the work that consultants do in terms of both training and coaching or mentoring.
