Creating a Coaching Culture

Creating a Coaching CultureWe are passionate about enabling organisations to maximise the potential of their staff. Creating a coaching culture enables more of that potential to be realised and so, creating a coaching culture produces a step change in organisational performance. In these times when many organisations are being challenged to do more with less coaching can provide a very cost effective solution to improving performance.

What is a Coaching Culture?

A coaching culture can be described as one where the key principles of coaching – asking questions, active listening, providing appropriate challenge and giving timely feedback – are embedded in the organisation. Managers see coaching as an integral part of their role rather than a ‘nice to have’ or ‘if I have time’. Employees at all levels value learning and collaborative working and take responsibility for their own development. In short, a coaching culture recognises and values organisational goals and direction whilst also encouraging individual growth as a way to achieve excellence and superior performance.

How to create a coaching culture?

Building a coaching culture takes time. It requires true commitment from senior management and the development of a way of working that puts individual growth at the heart.

More and more organisations are now recognising the value of coaching and there has been an exponential increase in coaching in recent years. The 2011 Learning and Development Survey carried out by the CIPD found that coaching now takes place in 86% of large organisations. In addition the survey made the following findings.

All of which make a strong case for ensuring that the leaders in your organisation are equipped to use coaching methods in their role by understanding the key principles of coaching and have the skills to exercise these on a day to basis. Through the use of ‘coaching conversations’ managers enhance personal performance by creating a culture of support and challenge enabling all team members to achieve their true potential.
