Coaching for Results in Business
Thursday, 26th May 2016
Whilst coaching has been a key part of sporting success for many years, it has only recently been highlighted as an essential business tool.
In today's fast moving and complex global world, coaching is increasingly the most effective way of achieving sustained learning and development of both individuals and teams. Top performance results from properly focused attention and investment.
More and more companies are turning to coaching to complement the overall development of the individual. After all, it's individuals that create excellence. This approach allows space for conventional technical skill based training as well as a focus on individual issues that enhance performance, and the payoffs are significant.
Coaching is about shifting the workplace horizon from one where people receive direction from others to one where people commit to doing things they care passionately about. The process encourages the development of personal leadership and responsibility throughout the organisation.
Coaching assists individuals and teams to focus on possibilities and eliminate limitations. It helps people overcome obstacles to their success, including their attitudes, beliefs and behaviours. Perhaps even more importantly it provides a model for giving and receiving constructive feedback.
As a leadership style, coaching focuses on the future, on what is possible - encouraging multi-level decision-making and evolutionary learning. Leaders support, inform and influence, resulting in performance being measured against shared goals with strong personal commitment by team members.
