Coaching is a partnership of assisting an individual or team to identify where they are, where they want to go, and then all the magic happens in the gap in between. In a nutshell, coaching is a conversation between the leader and coachee to bridge the gap by the coach asking powerful questions and utilising a plethora of tools to empower the coachee to come up with their own answers and solutions. People own what they co-create, and involvement is key, be the all “asking” manager not the all “telling” manager.
There are 4 key leadership postures we can take. Training, mentoring and demonstrating all play a part as what we do, but coaching is one of the most empowering.
We are passionate about equipping managers and leaders to be able to coach and always reinforce that coaching should not be remedial. Coaching can be a formal conversation or a 5 minute “coaching on the Fly” chat to get to a great outcome.
