In this VUCA world, leaders must navigate the complexities of globalisation, technological advancement, social interconnectivity, massively accelerating change and a multi-generational workforce. …. As well as dealing with a global pandemic.
How do you do that?
One significant opportunity for leaders is to use a coaching approach.
Coaching is a powerful tool to develop the potential of people, modify and adapt behaviours and thinking, and drive business success.
- The 2018 HCI ICF Study found that coaching activities (e.g., one-on-one coaching, team coaching & work group coaching with a professional coach practitioner) are rated as the most helpful in achieving the goals of change management initiatives.
- The 2017 study found that organisations with strong coaching cultures indicate recent revenues above that of their industry peer group and report higher employee engagement (61% and 53%, respectively).
- And contrary to popular belief, the top three work preferences are the same across most age groups: development opportunities, career advancement and flexibility at work.
Coaching is one of the best ways to develop and grow your talent. Of those who have received coaching, the areas where they report improvement include their work performance, communication skills, productivity, well-being, and business management strategies.
In order for leaders to inspire, influence and engage their teams so they can perform and deliver in a world of change, they must develop their own practice of leadership. The development of a coaching approach is an integral part of this.
✔️ Do you want your leaders to build more engaged, higher-performing teams and future leaders?
✔️ Do you need your leaders equipped to proactively lead and inspire change and transformation?
✔️ Do you want to develop a culture of learning, innovation and accountability?
✔️ Do you want to retain your key talent?
✔️ Do you want to bring out the best in all your people?
Then focus on developing the practice of coaching in your organisation.
The more mature the practice of coaching, the more possibility you create for systemic change and cultural transformation.
If you want to lead an organisation that enables, empowers, develops and supports its people and purpose, then consider the possibilities of developing a sustainable leadership coaching capability would create.
