Within any organization is the room for improvement, not just in the systems or procedures, but in the people and attitudes. Coaching can be the catalyst for these improvements, offering strategies for new learning and development. Coaching uses dialogue to establish a method of action for positive growth and brings about results. The coach approach to leadership enables managers to not only be effective in their position, but to motivate their employees to reach beyond their comfort and expand their knowledge. There is a greater understanding that comes from coaching and recognizes that personal success is not measured individually as much as it is measured through the success of those around you. A true leader will have an exceptional team of employees who trust, respect and even admire their management. This allows them to be a team who works effectively together and includes more positive interactions and increased productivity. Every organization can benefit from happier, more productive employees!
Some aspects of learning to take a coach approach to leadership within an organization:
- Allows for mistakes to be made and learned from, with open dialogue and positive feedback.
- Management learns to lead by example rather than “do as I say and not as I do”.
- Employees are encouraged to learn and develop new skills even as they go, on the job.
- Productivity is increased as trust is established between employees and management, leaving less management less inclined to resort to micromanaging employees.
- Employees and management work together as a team to establish new goals and build momentum.
- Increased levels of trust, engagement, development and positivity are characteristics of coaching.
