The Ripple Effect

The attraction, development and retention of key talent is crucial to a business’ performance and protection against a rapidly changing environment. Developing a coaching culture answers these business needs, creating an attractive environment that actively develops talented people.

Coaching as a leadership style has such a major impact on performance, engagement and the culture of an organisation that it can create a “ripple effect” throughout your organisation - where coaching, helping others, and unlocking potential is woven into the fabric of your culture.

Why do you need a coaching program?

Over the past decade, skills shortages have been ranked as one of the top concerns among business leaders from around the world. This need has only been amplified by the pandemic.

The competitive and volatile working environment has created the challenge for organisations to find new ways of accelerating learning and facilitate the transfer of skills between experienced leaders and emerging leaders. In an environment with high levels of diversity, where expatriate and local citizens work together, this need is heightened.

Coaching is one of the most practical and cost-effective ways to drive an internal culture of development, skills transfer and engagement.

By equipping your managers, leaders and supervisors with the tools they need to effectively coach, your organisation can leverage internal expertise to fast-track:

  • development
  • improve work performance
  • transfer skills
  • increase engagement; and
  • drive behavioural/attitudinal change.

What are the advantages of investing in coaching skills?

This high-impact workshop is designed to be highly practical, utilising an action-learning style to accelerate learning and facilitate sustainable change in the workplace.

You can expect the following outcomes from the workshop:

  • Your organisation will change from the inside-out: building a critical mass of change agents in your business.
  • Your leaders will augment their existing coaching skills through a formal coaching structure, framework and practical tools.
  • Your teams will develop self-awareness and insight into their coaching style, being given opportunities to practice and identify ways to enhance and modify it.
  • Your employees will benefit from higher levels of engagement, gaining a sense of belonging to part of something larger

“Coaching for Leaders Program | Unlocks potential in team culture”

The Coaching for Leaders program is an effective way to create a “ripple effect” throughout the business; where coaching, helping others, and unlocking potentials is woven into the fabric of a team’s culture. In addition, management starts to think like people leaders by using the skills to continually engage with their teams on a daily basis.
