Building a Coaching Culture
What is it?
Building a Coaching Culture within an organisation where not only formal coaching occurs but also where all employees are using coaching behaviours as a means of managing, influencing and communicating with each other, creating an environment that values learning and growth of its people.
This bespoke programme offers Leaders and individuals a unique opportunity to accelerate their professional development and enhance performance.
A development programme that introduces and embeds the practice of coaching into day-to-day leadership with individuals and teams.
Why do it?
The benefit of coaching is that it "achieves measurable and sustainable performance improvement aligned with explicit business needs beyond what the individual thought was possible for themselves". It develops a culture that can yield significant organisational benefits.
A coaching culture promotes more open communication. It builds trust and respect and It instils behaviours that value and encourage diversity and build an inclusive workforce.’
Everyone can recognise that part of their role involves facilitating the development of others. This, in turn, can bring significant operational improvements.
Recent research by the CIPD suggests that 99% of managers believe in coaching as a tool for organisational and personal improvement and would like to develop a coaching culture in their organisation.
Coaching is also an integral skill of leadership.
In these high pressured times, maintaining a coaching style and presence is one of the first casualties and yet is critical to keeping teams and individuals on-track and creating results.
No organisation will develop a coaching culture unless it is seen to be important to the people at the top of the organisation.
The credibility and influence of the leader can be enhanced by integrating coaching into day-to-day leadership practice.
A coaching culture engages, inspires, motivates, retains, and delivers the best performance, by building really effective relationships, increasing personal authority and encouraging all to play a bigger part on a bigger stage......
