As a manager you may excel at leading projects, driving results and resolving problems but, how much time do you spend developing and empowering your team members?
Google’s Project Oxygen considered what were the most important attributes for effective managers and being a good coach came out top! Other research indicates that adopting a coaching style can impact on employee motivation, retention and create a positive work culture. Google now trains all its managers in coaching skills and has seen a 75% improvement in performance outcomes.
Most managers aren’t natural coaches but the good news is these skills can learned.
When given the opportunity to learn and grow, people thrive. By adopting a coaching mentality and approach, you can help members of your team realise their potential. An investment in employees will help retain top talent and foster a culture of growth and opportunity, which is a win for people and performance outcomes.
Idyia’s mission to promote the power of coaching extends also to developing managers’ coaching skills through an in-house interactive and practical workshop.
