Why coach?

Every organization has its own approach to performance management and coaching. But all models view coaching as interactive. Coaching helps individuals grow as professionals and contribute fully to the success of an organization. Done well, it can turn performance management into a collaborative process that benefits everyone.

In today's environment of changing technology and evolving organizations, coaching can have a strategic impact. It provides continuous learning and develops people to meet current and future needs. Coaching is an investment that you make in developing your key resource, people, for the long-term benefit of the organization.  About 6 out of 10 (59%) organizations currently offer coaching or other developmental counseling to their managers and executives, according to a nationwide survey of more than 300 companies by Manchester, a human capital consulting firm. Another 20% of organizations said they plan to offer such coaching within the next year.

Here's why: Most organizations need to improve productivity to fuel growth and profitability. Productivity doesn't happen when people are only focusing on the financial or technical issues. They also must build the capability of managers to help their employees with the intangible elements of human interaction---because the work gets done through personal relationships. The key to ROI is developing and sustaining individual and group behaviors through personal relationships to achieve the desired business results. Executive coaching builds the organizational capability to get this done.

Coaching Tip

Effective Leadership

There has always been pressure on corporate leaders to perform well. Some have stretched and improved their competencies by learning more about themselves. Most have chosen to adopt best practices of those whom they respect to improve their own leadership style.

So, which is the better method to develop leadership skills---improve your innate signature talents or copy what others have developed and used successfully?

The short answer is don't jump from one leadership fad to another but do engage in authentic conversations and self-assessments to know yourself better.

Throw out the Cookbook

Cookbookish leadership doesn't work when you are following someone else's recipe. Perhaps, the quote from Dr. Maxwell Maltz of the Psycho-Cybernetic Foundation, about the need to focus our internal energy to make the changes we desire, says it best…

"Trying to implant a goal that is incongruent with the self-image is like trying to plant grain by dropping seeds on rock hard bone-dry ground. No one can consistently out perform his or her self-image. No one can overcome it with willpower. No one can sneak past it and perform in an incongruent manner. The bottom line is that you cannot 'do' things without 'being' the kind of person who does those things. You must 'be' to 'do.'"

Bottom Line: Something that works well for a leader in one company is not easily replicated in another.
