Coaching to help your employees and leaders maximise their capability and effectiveness and minimise people-risk
People at every level of an organisation face challenges associated with their roles. Often, these problems are not about technical expertise, but interpersonal style, identity and values, or leadership capability. If left unattended, these problems can have lasting and damaging impacts on individuals, teams and the organisation. This is where workplace coaching can help.
Being able to apply new interpersonal learning and test out new approaches can be challenging in the context of our increasingly pressured and busy working lives. Yet this is so critical to creating effective, thriving people and workplaces.
Adults can learn only so much through training and education. Whether it is a CEO who has lost their creative spark, a new leader who doesn’t understand how to use their new power and authority most effectively, an experienced leader having difficulty letting go of entrenched habits or managing the performance of their team, or staff members involved in conflict, all of these scenarios have one thing in common – there is no training course to fix it.
Coaching is an established tool for supporting individuals to reach their potential, improve their relationships and increase their satisfaction. But more than that, coaching improves individual and organisational wellbeing during change, and promotes growth, empowerment and creativity. Coaching enhances communication, retention and commitment. Coaching contributes to risk reduction and prevention of workplace disharmony.
By providing tailored and targeted coaching services, organisations can support their employees in building professional and personal capabilities, profoundly improving their effectiveness as employees, managers and leaders while significiantly reducing people risk.
Bringing in an experienced, independent coach is an effective strategy to:
- transform behaviour by developing individual interpersonal skills and building self-awareness
- address the underlying causes of conflict, anxiety and concern
- help individuals understand their style and impact on others and adopt new approaches
- support leaders to develop options, strategies and the skills necessary to effectively lead and manage others.
