ABOUT COACHING SKILLS FOR MANAGERS
“Line managers are increasingly expected to coach staff and can have a powerful influence on their teams and the organisation as a whole when they adopt a coaching style of management.
Coaching is a collaborative and co-creative process that inspires self-discovery, identifies new possibilities and strategic actions, designed to help staff to achieve goals. Coaching is based on asking powerful questions that ignite creative ways of thinking, inspiring one to do more than they thought they could and holding them accountable for decisons, actions and results.
Coaching Increases Ownership of Performance —While the world’s workplace has been going through extraordinary historical change, the practice of management has been stuck in time for more than 30 years.
“The new workforce — especially younger generations — wants their work to have deep mission and purpose, and they don’t want old-style command-and-control bosses. They want coaches who inspire them, communicate with them frequently and develop their strengths”. Gallup Study 2019,
Coaching expands the individuals performance –
Because Coaching is about listening more and asking more questions – not simply to gather facts but to elicit solutions, feelings, ideas and new thoughts from the person being coached.
If the objective is to develop employees, asking them questions challenges them to think harder and more broadly about issues, thereby enlarging their perspective and improving their reasoning skills.
When the need is to make decisions, the same coaching skills can generate better solutions. The skill of coaching is in being able to ask questions that help people open up, and bring into play a wider circle of ideas and expertise.
