Creating a Coaching Culture

Build agility, resilience and collaboration for your organisation by improving communication and leadership through a coaching culture.

A coaching culture in the workplace supports the long-term health and effectiveness of an organisation.

By using a coaching and mentoring approach to management and leadership, collaboration and communication improves. This builds business agility, resilience and the ability to cope with uncertainty and complexity within your organisation’s culture.

Collaborative relationships

Develop effective relationships in the workplace and help teams create shared purpose and goals

Self awareness

Improved skills and self-knowledge at work to develop others as well as manage them. Encouraging an empowered culture

Talent retention

Create a more engaging and rewarding place to work, tapping into talent and creating a culture where people love to work.

In a coaching culture a three-stranded union of the coach, the coachee and the organisation, work together to achieve the best result for everyone. The focus is very much on the individual and their needs. By meeting these needs, the needs of the organisation are met. They can then help to support people deeper in the business and improve their overall organisation culture.

Benefits of a coaching culture

A coaching culture in the workplace can be formal or informal. It can involve giving leaders the skills and self-knowledge to be able to focus on developing people as well as managing them.

Or it can be a systemic approach, developing in-house coaches to increase your internal capacity and resources to support others, by default creating a better more open and supportive culture in the workplace.

Either way, you are likely to see an increase in productive conversations that solve business problems¬† at work and capitalise on opportunities. You’ll be tapping into the talent in your organisation, making it a more engaging and rewarding place to work.

Other benefits include:

  • Developing more self-direction, self-management, self-initiation, self-awareness
  • Cultivating a collaborative approach to working which will enhance accountability and autonomy
  • Developing coaching skills for navigating change and uncertainty whilst strengthening relationship and building resilience
  • Tapping into the knowledge across your organisation empowering individuals and teams to improve productivity and performance through coaching
  • Better informed decision making which incorporates the individual, team, organisational and systemic needs
  • Increasing the capacity of individuals to take responsibility for their own learning and employability within the workplace
  • Helping with points of transition personally and in the organisation.

On an individual level a coaching culture encourages the giving and receiving of feedback, open and honest conversations, and teams working with a shared purpose and clear roles and relationships. A workplace that’s willing and committed to continuous improvement.
