Corporate Coaching Skills: Transforming people for success
Coaching is the in-word in the new economy. Apart from job-related and management skills, coaching is a must-have skill that all managers need to take their te.am members through to peak performance, manage conflicts and improve te.amwork. Coaching is undoubtedly a great way of developing, leading and managing others within an organization. It has been increasingly shown that leaders of an organization who see themselves as coaches rather than managers, are more likely to move their organization from good to great.
In the workplace, most managers are able to describe what their team members lack in terms of skills or what they are doing wrong. However, many are clueless why their people still cannot perform as expected, even after they have been taught or trained in the necessary skills.
A case in point is sending sales staff for sales training when the sales manager decides his or her team can do much better to hit targets: “My team needs to learn some great sales techniques and be able to close sales.” So, the team is packed off to attend a high impact training program. Some get fired up, and their performance improves, but some stay lackluster, or worse, dips in their performance!
Does this means training does not work? No, of course not. Training is necessary as it provides the necessary knowledge, skills and inculcates the right attitude in the te.am. However, training often only addresses the symptoms, while one-to-one coaching can uncover the real root cause of the problems, and give customised advice according to their needs and habits and help overcome personal goals. Research has found that combining training with coaching is the best way to get trainees to continue to apply the knowledge, skills and to help them stay focused on the process and the outcomes, and keep them motivated.
Excellence is never an accident; it is developed and trained. Corporate coaches play a significant role in helping to develop people. The by-product of course, is the coaches are being developed themselves in the process and many have satisfactorily moved up the corporate ladder.
Developing a coaching culture in the organization will not only positively influence business results but also improve areas like employee engagement and the overall organizational climate which in turn will improve business performance. Many successful corporations, including Microsoft, Hewlett-Packard, Boeing and Intel, have realized great value in corporate coaching and mentoring programs in:
• Preparing for succession
• Retaining high performers
• Improving job performance
• Managing corporate knowledge
• Reducing learning time and cost
