Coaching is all about getting people to think of their own solutions and their own way forward.
Developing a whole culture of coaching conversations is one of the most valuable things a leader can do for their team and direct reports. If a large part of relationships at work involves “coaching”, it becomes all about constantly targeting improvement and enabling the development of every individual, and as a consequence, the whole team and business.
By having this positive intent at the heart of most conversations, it enables all relationships across the business to be more efficient, more goal focused, and have greater clarity, and allows people to come up with the solutions to their own goals, challenges, and problems.
