Why Coaching?

In today's business environment, an organization’s success depends heavily on their manager's coaching skills. The ability to develop employees not only yields better business results, but it also addresses ALL of the top workplace issues highlighted in our 2023 State of the Workplace research.

Top Workforce Issues

Coaching Increases Employee Effectiveness, Engagement and Experience

Effective coaches intrinsically have strong listening skills and empathy plus they skillfully ask questions that intrigue and engage employees. They see everyday challenges as opportunities to teach others vs. just telling them what to do. They understand that delegation isn’t just giving away work, it’s also an important tool to stretch and challenge employees – something that has become an expectation from employees.

Today, companies will thrive by… “moving away from traditional command-and-control practices and toward something very different: a model in which managers give support and guidance rather than instructions…” Herminia Ibarra and Anne Scoular, Harvard Business Review – Nov-Dec 2019

DEI & Coaching Synergy

Most often, organizations deploy DEI and coaching training for managers separately. However, combining the two efforts creates a synergistic result. Coaching is often focused on changing the behaviors of employees and managers, which is a big part of creating a DEI culture. In addition, having a robust coaching process effectively applied by all managers will create a talent and leadership pipeline – a must for attracting, engaging and underrepresented employees.

Coaching Promotes and Preserves Culture

The implementation of more remote work has created flexibility which is highly valued  (if not expected) by employees. The result is likely having a negative impact on the culture of organizations. In a 2021 study conducted by Price Waterhouse Cooper, only 5% of the US executives responded that a culture could be sustained in a totally remote workplace. The fact is fewer personal interactions between team members is sure to have a negative impact on culture.

mgr culture

Strong and consistent managerial coaching plays a huge role in creating and maintaining a culture - especially when organizational values and behavioral expectations are in place. As mentioned above, coaching most often involves behaviors. Behaviors create experiences; experiences create beliefs; and beliefs drive cultural norms. If a company isn't creating a culture through coaching, a culture will evolve naturally and it may NOT the one that's desired!
