A research report by Deloitte highlights the benefits of developing the coaching capabilities of leaders. The report states, “Organizations in which leaders ‘very frequently’ coach had 21% higher business results. Further, organizations with ‘excellent’ cultural support for coaching had 13% stronger business results and 39% stronger employee results.”
However, if the business case for coaching is so compelling, why isn’t coaching more widely accepted as a talent development strategy? A significant challenge for many organizations is how to train their leaders to be effective coaches. Many people are not “born” with good coaching skills and far too many companies under-appreciate the value of this skill when making hiring decisions.
Although the skills required to be an effective coach are numerous, our experience has shown that the most successful leader-coaches possess several “key” attributes. In this webinar, we explore and discuss these key attributes that support the best coaching leaders.
