Why You Should Be Coaching Your Employees
INVESTING FOR SUCCESS:Why are leadership and coaching skills such an important part of organizational progress and long-term success?
Businesses today are under tremendous pressure to become more effective amidst rapid increases in global competition. If an organization desires to progress in this extremely competitive environment, leaders will need to devote more energy and resources to creating teams, building positive communication with committed employees, and inspiring improved performance. Managers will need to transform into leaders and coaches instead of mere authority figures. Engaging employees in productive coaching discussions and professional development activities is the key to influencing, motivating, and recognizing those who will contribute and collaborate with their leaders to the benefit of the entire organization. This change in management style -- and overhaul of the interaction managers typically have with employees -- can have a remarkable, positive influence on team-member productivity and organizational effectiveness.
THE LEADER AS COACH
A true leader is someone who is willing to empower his or her employees to identify and develop their talents and hold them personal accountable for growth. Leaders can accomplish this by learning how to coach their employees. CMOE's Coaching Skills™ Workshop is the most effective tool companies can provide to their business leaders as a way of helping them learn how to become a coach.
Coaching Skills Workshop attendees will learn that coaching is:

- Removing traditional barriers and boundaries to collaboration

COACHING LEADER STYLE
The coaching leadership style builds personal and team morale, fostering a partnership where employees feel like they are genuinely contributing to the success of the organization. It is for this reason alone that coaching should become a proactive process for managers at all levels. Building authentic relationships and collaborating with employees -- the essence of coaching -- is an investment in the long-term health of your organization. Just as important as capital technology and marketing strategies, coaching will benefit the organization in countless ways as employees increase their productivity and the quality of their efforts.
