There are many wonderful benefits associated with professional coaching.  Leaders who engage in a coaching relationship report that they have experienced fresh perspectives on personal challenges and opportunities, enhanced thinking and decision making skills, enhanced interpersonal effectiveness, and increased confidence in carrying out their chosen work and life roles.

Consistent with a commitment to enhancing their personal effectiveness, they can also expect to see appreciable results in the areas of productivity, personal satisfaction with life and work, and the achievement of personally relevant goals.  International Coach Federation

This is what happens when one engages and fully inserts themselves within a coaching relationship.  Imagine what the impact will be once your company decides to include Executive Coaching as a day to day practice at all levels.  With the combination of the COOTBOX 5/5/5 Coach Training and Executive Coaching, your business can also reap the benefits of a 700% return on Investment. (2009 ICF Global Coaching Client Study)

In Sync Leadership Development can come in with their licensed trainers to teach your Executive Team how to coach each other and their employees.  Through this process, we will demonstrate, teach and guide your team in order to create a Coaching Culture where the return on investment will speak for itself. 

Gregg Thompson of Bluepoint Leadership Development  states that in a coaching culture, “people are committed to the success and performance of other people — not just the success and performance of themselves.” A ‘Coaching Culture’ is a place where formal coaching occurs and coaching skills are used as a means to manage, influence and communicate with each other within an organization.  It is an environment where the fundamentals of the firms culture lies in the learning and growth of its people as a core value which in turn provides an ROI of 500% to 700%.  It is an organization that fosters a culture where skills such as Emotional Intelligence, Active Listening, Appreciative Inquiry and powerful Feedback are the norm of all the Leadership Team.

What are the steps to creating a Coaching Culture in the organization?

 First and foremost, one must have the desire and ‘buy-in’ of Senior level executives within the organization with Trained Coaches ready to facilitate the program. In preparation for this, it is essential to have a fully developed program that includes:

  • A clearly stated ‘What’s In It For Me’ strategy that links Coaching to the company objectives, goals and the individuals role within the company
  • Clearly articulated Confidentiality Agreements and parameters within the organization
  • Internal Marketing Plan to promote Coaching that includes a Coaching Participant Manual to address any questions an employee may  have
  • Administration and Enrollment Plan that includes matching coaches & clients, tracking, reporting and success measurement. 

There are many programs out there where Licensed Professionals come in and help create this within any organization.  We have two Licensed Trainers that are available to come and teach the 5/5/5 Coaching Skills Training Program to your organization.  With the core skills of coaching and the above program, your company can successfully roll out a Coaching Program that embodies a true ‘Coaching Culture’. 

 There is a lot of ‘buzz’ about creating a ‘Coaching Culture’, what are the benefits to me and my organization as a whole?

 There are many benefits to creating a Coaching Culture in any business.  There have been numerous studies regarding coaching and it’s benefits.  The Gallup Organization study concluded that:

Highly engaged workplaces are:

  • 50% more likely to have lower turnover
  • 56% more likely to have higher-than-average customer loyalty
  • 38% more likely to have above average productivity
  • 27% more likely to report higher profitability

Investing in programs that build the capacity of managers to have coaching conversations will pay big dividends in individual employee engagement, organizational health and business success.
