Scale coaching throughout all levels of your organization to elevate and accelerate performance.
“Coaching is unlocking a person’s potential to maximise their own performance. It is helping them to learn rather than teaching them.”
John Whitmore, in Coaching for Performance.
Right now, from the C-Suite to your front-line managers, there are brilliant people in your Company who have big decisions to make, problems to solve, and people to lead. New and unpredictable challenges keep them up at night because they care about bringing their best in the morning. Coaching is the best way to make it easier for them.
Coaching is a development process designed to help individuals and teams achieve and sustain top performance in ways that are linked to the organization’s needs and measurable business results.
The difference between good coaches and bad coaches is this: good coaches believe you already have the answer. You just need a little push to reach it.
Coaches are not meant to be subject experts; instead, their role is to ask you the right questions so you can get where you have to be. The most effective coaching strategies are the ones that focus on helping people learn things by themselves instead of teaching them how to do it.
When looking for a coaching provider, find those who are agile and available to your people. Look for a coaching company that is willing to provide a scalable approach that matches each individual’s needs, local cultural norms, and the Company’s business objectives.
There are ways to improve people: coaching and mentoring so what are they, and what sets them apart? Here’s how.
We know better than anyone the impact coaching can have on people and businesses. That’s why every year, we coach hundreds of thousands of people from all kinds of organizations all over the world.
LHH has over 3,000 highly credentialed coaches around the world. Each of them brings their unique business expertise to the situation and delivers Coaching with a consistent methodology. Our coaches–and our coaching methodology–are certified by the International Coaching Federation (ICF).
LHH’s coaching curriculum will help you develop coaching skills inside your Company. Your managers and leaders will be better prepared to nurture their people’s capabilities, guide their careers, and handle unexpected day-to-day challenges. And like our own coaches, your managers and leaders can become ICF (International Coach Federation) certified through LHH, so they can further evolve your culture to one that sees coaching as a benefit and a catalyst for success.
Companies that genuinely embrace a coaching culture experience faster employee onboarding, increased productivity, and higher employee engagement.
Most workplaces today still follow a command-and-control style of management. It is a cookie-cutter type of solution where managers or other similar roles tell people what to do. It is the kind of approach that leaves employees with no room for feedback or a more personal connection.
Building a coaching culture starts by accepting your team members’ differences and letting these qualities thrive and shine on their own. When managers motivate their employees through acceptance, they release a domino effect that increases productivity, revenue, and even other opportunities.
