Creating a Coaching Culture

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

A coaching culture 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.

Collaborative relationships

Develop effective relationships and help teams create shared purpose and goals

Self awareness

Skills and self-knowledge to develop others as well as manage them

Talent retention

Create a more engaging and rewarding place to work, tapping into talent

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.

Benefits of a coaching culture

A coaching culture 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.

Either way, you are likely to see an increase in¬†productive conversations that solve business problems 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 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
  • 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
  • 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.
