WHY SHOULD LEADERS COACH?
“The best leaders, take a coach approach.”
Have you considered becoming more like a coach with your team? You don’t have to be a trained coach (although it helps) to use these principles to help your staff achieve greater results:
Maximize the potential of you team. Coaches help identify strengthens, gaps and weaknesses. Focusing development efforts on the areas that require the most attention. This can help you invest time and energy only in the most fruitful opportunities.
Build rapport with your team A good coach will always believe in their team, motivate and speak the truth. This type of authentic relationship builds rapport and trust with your team members.
Set clear goals – Coaches provide structure, accountability, and the support necessary to ensure sustained commitment to the goals.
Increase engagement. A recent Gallup study revealed that just 13% of employees worldwide are engaged at work. Yet according to a study done by HCI and the ICF, coaching correlates with increased employee engagement; 65% of employees from companies with strong coaching cultures rated themselves as highly engaged.
