Culture” is a popular buzz phrase at present. What
does it mean?
an organisation embraces coaching, it finds that good managers and leaders are
effectively good coaches. Once senior individuals receive coaching, they become
curious as to how the coaching approach can be applied in their business.
a competitive business world, changing the core of an organisation so that “getting
the most out of people” is seen as something that is achieved by supporting
them requires a significant change to how most organisations operate in reality.
World class organisations such as Microsoft have integrated coaching
into most parts of their structure. These organisations know that we are living
in a dramatically shifting period of history. Without upgrading the culture
that drives them, organisations stuck in “old cultures” may be
doomed sooner than they think.
Organisations have found that coaching
skills are very useful when applied in the fields of management, leadership and
sales. Adopting a "Coaching Culture" means that the benefits actually
feed through to the bottom line. The best leaders and sales people are generally
excellent coaches themselves.
We run significant in-house programmes
which integrate coach training, coaching, projects and coaching supervision to
implement a change to a coaching culture.
For example, one international
firm asked us to provide our Manager as Coach course to their entire management
team. This involved also running through some team projects supported by individual and team coaching,
as well as presentation of the results of the programme to the Board. Their
year-end following our programme reported the highest ever profits and staff retention
figures within that department.
