Become a coach or develop a coaching leadership style
Visionary business leaders have understood the truly transformational impact of developing coaching principles and behaviours across the board, in all interactions and all areas of their organization. They have replaced the traditional hierarchical management structures with a coaching management style and culture so as to integrate meaning and purpose, to facilitate high awareness and responsibility, belief, passion and joy in all staff and to fully engage and mobilize collaboration and the collective intelligence of employees at all levels.
Leaders using coaching skills
The International Coaching Federation (ICF) and Human Capital Institute (HCI) have released findings from their latest research “Building a Coaching Culture with Millennial Leaders” which shows how young leaders benefit from partnering with a coach and receiving training on how to use coaching skills with their peers and teams.
According to the report, leaders who use coaching skills and have coaching qualities such as emotional intelligence are most effective. Forty-six per cent of respondents in organizations with strong coaching cultures reported above-average 2016 revenue growth in relation to industry peers, versus 39 per cent of respondents from all other organizations.
They found coaching skills are considered essential competencies for first-time people managers, and that organizations are looking to expand the scope of leaders using coaching skills in the next five years. When asked to describe the most effective management style, respondents most commonly cited “collaborative” and “coaching”.
“Performance Consultants offer an impressive variety of trainers, course elements and experiences. I believe that every kind of manager and leader should learn the basics in Coaching for Performance: Foundation. They are essential to everyone in management. They include basic coaching knowledge, skills and how to use these techniques as a leadership style.”Miroslav Rakowski, Customer Services & Sales Director, T-Mobile, Czech Republic
