Recent research by Blanchard and others clearly shows that leaders who use coaching skills have more effective teams, grow and retain their key people, and experience higher productivity overall. Learning to coach requires time and practice, but it will save time by making leaders and employees more successful.
These leaders draw out ideas and solutions from their people, collaborating with them rather than solving their problems.
They bring just the right amount of directive behaviours to achieve the goal, all the while developing the skills and confidence of their people. This results in more competent and capable people who perform at higher levels over time.
Coaching Essentials® is a skills-based training program designed to help managers and leaders integrate coaching behaviours into their leadership style, by understanding the coaching process and developing essential coaching skills that help them develop others.
This means asking instead of telling, drawing out ideas and solutions, collaborating, partnering, and focusing on the development of people by using supportive behaviours and keeping them moving toward organisational objectives.
