Embed coaching in your organization's culture.
A coaching culture is “one where the principles, beliefs, and mindsets driving people’s behavior in the workplace are deeply rooted in the discipline of coaching” (Clutterbuck, Megginson, and Bajer, 2016).
Schein (1992) believed that the leader’s role is to create and manage organizational culture, but Yohn (2021) and others have argued that organizational culture is everyone’s responsibility.
Whether you attribute responsibility to the leader and/or to the entire organization, creating a coaching culture can be driven from the top down, the bottom up, or both.
Executives engage with a coach in a creative and thought-provoking process that supports them in reaching their goals.
Leaders at all levels of the organization learn how and when to embed coaching in their leadership practice.
In-tact teams or long-term project teams are designed, launched, and coached by an experienced coach to higher levels of performance.
Mid-level managers coach each other and are coached as a group and individually by an experienced coach.
