Creating a Coaching Culture
High performing organisations are characterised by their ability to constantly adapt and grow, a capability enhanced by the systematic practice of coaching. A coaching culture enables the organisation to access the ideas, power and wisdom of all of its people, with communication flowing up, down and laterally, independent of the hierarchy.
In a coaching culture, leaders are positive role models, feedback is a core competence, and communication features emotionally intelligent conversations that lead to inspired action. Learning is captured and change happens fast.
Get Gritty develops a coaching culture by a variety of skills programmes, including the identification and training of change agents throughout the organisation. A coaching culture is not just a nice-to-have. It is the source of the constantly improving job performance and ever-increasing customer satisfaction demanded by a high performing organisation.
