INDIVIDUAL COACHING

In today’s work environment, everyone can benefit from individual coaching. Some environments are so fast-paced that there may not be the time or attention to training and development that can help individuals excel. Employees may need help in developing the skills required to accomplish the career goals they desire. They may be struggling with managing work and personal demands and need some extra coaching to move forward.

Individual Coaching provides dedicated support to help individuals:

 

Set and Reach Career Goals

A professional coach can be that safe accountability partner needed to help set career goals and encourage the necessary steps to achieve them.

 

Acquire and Improve Skills

To make fast and effective progress acquiring and improving skills, it is very helpful to have an unbiased and interested advocate — a professional coach — helping to set direction, give feedback and reinforce successes.

 

Improve Self-awareness

Some people get in their own way — and end up squandering an opportunity because they just can’t see that they are sabotaging themselves through: 

  • ineffective communication styles

  • difficulty getting along with others

  • difficulty concentrating on a task

  • inability to set and reach goals

  • conflicts between work and personal life

Coaching is a commonly used method of employee development that has generated positive business outcomes. A strong coaching culture has been linked to better talent and business outcomes, according to a 2019 survey from the International Coach Federation (ICF) and the Human Capital Institute (HCI).

 

According to the ICF/HCI survey, respondents with a strong coaching culture reported higher outcomes in areas such as:

  • Customer satisfaction

  • Regulatory compliance

  • Talent attraction

  • Profitability

  • Shareholder value

  • Labor productivity

  • Large-scale strategic change

  • New product/service development and delivery

However, coaching is not for everyone. Some individuals are not open to feedback, and some are unwilling to change. This is a problem with the person being coached, not a deficiency in the tool of coaching. Even a stellar employee can benefit from having a professional coach help them solve problems and excel even more. For those who make a commitment, coaching can open a whole new world in terms of greater candor, more respect from staff at all levels, professional alliances and relationships, and better skills to achieve strategic goals.

TEAM COACHING

Teams are a group of people assembled for a common purpose, ideally with defined roles and identifiable goals. Teams are generally expected to produce results beyond what an individual can achieve. However, it is fairly common for a group to struggle, produce poor results or even fail completely. Frequently they succumb to unhelpful patterns and unresolved conflict.

 

The team coaching process begins with establishing a sustainable environment that cultivates engagement and healthy relationships. This foundation enables the coach to assist teams in aligning around a common purpose, establishing an inspiring vision and clearly defined roles, creating accountability for behavior as well as outcomes, and making constructive decisions in line with the team and organizational goals.

Team coaching can be effective at all levels — from the C-suite to to the front-line. It is another key type of coaching in the workplace because even high-performing individuals can sometimes struggle to work together effectively. A variety of methodologies and formats can be introduced to foster healthy interactions and high performance. These may be fairly structured and prescriptive, such as during a retreat where a coach works with the team’s leadership to create the agenda and then facilitates the meeting, possibly even teaching content. 

In other situations, less scripted methods may be used, such as helping a project team interact more effectively or facilitating a process that evolves in unplanned ways. Sometimes a coach may observe a team in its normal work environment and provide coaching based on those observations.
