Over time, more and more organisations are starting to recognize the value in setting up coaching culture which offers possibilities for skills development to their employees, to increase their abilities, to grow and develop, and achieve their professional personal goals and company’s goals at the same time.
Important business advantages lay behind the development of coaching culture within the organisation – in this way, companies can create a better environment for their employees regarding career progress, higher engagement, better communication and innovation, and they could better attract, retain and develop top talents.
Coaching culture differs from one company to another and evolves so it could be a part of complete business culture, but there are certain strategies and plans for development and retention of coaching culture which are relevant for organisations on all levels and industries.
Developing coaching culture and retaining it through time requires support and dedication from leaders themselves before everybody else. Coaching of leaders will help them develop their thinking process and create achievable and efficient strategies for them and their organisation.
Introducing coaching for executive and middle management as the first step has various advantages. In this way, leaders will better create a business strategy, promote coaching within an organization and be empowered to adopt the right way to support their team members so they could develop their own leadership style in an efficient way. Coaching could be used in individual feedback sessions and everyday interaction with talents regarding their development and progress. It could be used also for solving any elements of bad performance while teaching employees how to understand and solve problems regarding their own or teams’ performance. The goal is to create an environment where coaching will be used as a key method of managing. It is also important to consider how everyone could be involved in the development of coaching culture from the very beginning.
Keeping open communication with all employees about a process and ideas being put forward is very important in developing a coaching culture within a company. It depends on the employees whether they will accept the coaching culture and start living it, and it is good to work on a shared desired outcome of creating a culture in which every member of an organization recognizes the benefits of coaching, understands it and actively demonstrates coaching skills. In this way, employees will feel they are sharing responsibility for their own learning, and not just waiting for information to be transferred to them.
Innovation & agility
Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting to get different results.
– Albert Einstein.
