How a Coaching Course can Improve your Leadership Skills

I’m now a certified coach! But no, I don’t have the intention of working as a coach. My goal was to improve my leadership skills.

First of all, I became a better listener. My natural tendency is that I like to speak and express my opinions. In the coaching course I developed the ability to pay attention to what other people are saying. As a leader, this is a very important skill. If you don’t really take in consideration what your team members say, they will simply stop talking to you.

I also learned that very frequently people don’t need your advice. Sometimes the best way to help a person is by asking questions that will conduct this person to finding his/her own answers. In the past, I had the habit of immediately giving my opinion whenever I was presented some problem. Now I understand that it may be much more effective to ask first: “What would you do in this situation?”

I want to thank my teacher, master coach Matías Duek, from the International Kosher Coaching institute, for the passionate lessons in which he shared his knowledge and experience with us.

I also want to express my gratitude to the other participants in this course, that helped made it a real pleasurable experience: Alejandro Goldwasser, Ariel Levin, Federico Pipman, Ilan Orchansky & Rav Richard Kaufmann.
