(Source - ICF Global Coaching Client Study Final Report June 2009)
Every individual can benefit from Coaching. Coaching is an increasingly popular way of developing people. This is the era of Democratising coaching and making it available to all in a Managerial and Supervisory positions- an era of Creating a Coaching Culture. As it helps manage change and create future leaders that have a vision and mission to give your Organization an edge over competition.
Coaching has an impact on Individual, team and Organizational performance. Equipping our Leaders, including Managers and supervisors with Coaching skills is critical to building a culture of Feedforward conversations for continuous learning and growth. What works for an individual may not work for another, hence creating a culture where each employee is treated as an individual and heard and respected will definitely lead to team and Organisational success. Organizations with an active coaching culture will have more engaged and empowered employees. These employees feel a connect with the Organization and tend to have a longer work tenure.
What is a Coaching Culture?
Erstwhile Organizations operated primarily on a tell method or follow-the-leader method. Employees were told by their leaders what to do and how to do it. In today’s time the ‘tell’ method of functioning could be ineffective. What we in-turn need to adopt is the ‘ask’ method of adult learning.
A coaching culture is about nurturing and developing the talent in your organization and optimally utilising their potential. A culture that offers a safe place for communication to create trust, creativity, interpersonal skills, continuous learning resulting in an engaged and energized workforce.
Creating a coaching culture builds learning agility in an Organization and creates resilience to face the ongoing challenges in employees.
