Coaching, a technique that promotes feedback, big-picture thinking and greater efficiency, can help executives and employees reach their potential.
Some may worry that this kind of culture change could be difficult. That’s not necessarily the case, according to a blog posting earlier this year from the Center for Creative Leadership. The group insists that using coaching as part of a company’s talent and leadership development strategy is one way to get there.
The CCL posting recommends that companies use the technique in leadership programs for groups such as senior managers and experts, or employees that show high potential.
“It’s equivalent to learning how to walk before you run,” the CCL posting states.
But by doing so, an organization can deliberately train key groups to adopt a coaching approach for their work. The end result, the posting argues, is a culture change that promotes more collaboration but also efficient problem-solving toward better results.
