Making it as a Coach
 

Summer is in full swing and we hope you are taking the time to enjoy your favorite pastimes. For many, summer is a time to catch up on reading, reflect on the first half of the year and make plans for how to finish out the year strong. If your reflections and plans involve becoming a coach or making sure you are successful as a coach, this newsletter is written for you.

 

 

Almost daily we receive inquiries from people who are interested in becoming a coach but have many questions and at least a little trepidation. Questions we frequently get asked include;

 

  • What does it take to become certified?
  • How long will it take?
  • What training and education programs are needed?
  • What are the keys to making it as a successful coach?

 

Other inquirers have started a coaching business and are looking for tools to help them strengthen their skills and add to their tool kit. If you are thinking of becoming a coach or already one and looking for tips, tools and techniques to help you succeed, we’ve created a new webinar just for you.

 

 

In this free webinar we will discuss what it takes to become a successful coach. We bring our years of experience in coaching to discuss the formal requirements, education and training needed, as well as the soft skills, traits and attributes that are common among successful coaches. We’ll also discuss challenges and pitfalls that tend to keep coaches from reaching their full potential and how to avoid these.

 
  • Join our next FREE Webinar on the topic of Making it as a Coach, Monday, July 25 @ 11 a.m. Pacific. We’ll walk you through what it really takes to make it as a coach. We'll cover the formal education and training requirements and then take it a step further. We’ll dive deeper into soft skills, traits and attributes of successful coaches. You'll leave with a clear understanding of what it takes to make it as a coach, how to strengthen your coaching skills and if coaching is right for you. Be sure to join us. Click here to register.

The 'How To' Behind Coaching Success in Healthcare
 

Just like many industries, healthcare is facing many challenges. Increasing demands to do more with less; the influx of Millennials into the workforce, rapid advances in technology and evolving expectations of staff and patients. The rapid pace of change is creating a sense of urgency among leaders and managers to find new and better ways of leading their organizations.

 

But, managers and leaders no longer have the luxury of time. They must find new training and development tools and techniques that are easy to implement and produce sustainable results. Gone are the days of bringing in a new consultant each year to train on yet a different approach - only to see disappointing results.

 

One approach that has staying power and is having great success in healthcare organizations is that of taking a coach approach to leadership. Coaching brings out the best whether it is in performance, communications, relationships or team building. Individuals at all levels throughout the organization can learn coaching skills. Coaching can be done on the fly, during a conversation in the hallway or over a coffee. When done right it becomes a new way of thinking, communicating and leading that becomes an integral part of every interaction.

 

We’ve implemented our coaching programs in a number of healthcare organizations and continue to get reports of real and exciting success. Here is just one example; in this case there were many positive results including an unexpected trickle-down effect.

 

A children’s hospital specializing in brain injury contracted with us to build coaching skills in their organization. What started as a program to bring coaching skills to leaders and managers went viral. Staff at all levels started noticing a difference and seeing results. They wanted to go through the training. An unexpected benefit was the use of coaching skills not only in employee communications but also in communicating with patients and families. Staff saw that the coach approach was a better way to communicate clearly, improve understanding and comprehension and support the achievement of optimal outcomes.

 

We think there is much to be learned from these success stories and we’ve put together a webinar to share this information including the Nuts and Bolts of how these successes are being achieved. We’ll also discuss how these can apply to your organization whether you are in healthcare or any industry facing similar challenges.

 
  • Join our next FREE Webinar on the topic of Coaching in Healthcare: The Nuts and Bolts (hint: it’s not just for healthcare) Wednesday, June 22 @ 11 a.m. Pacific. We’ll explore real life examples of challenges faced, how coaching was rolled out to the organization, implemented and results achieved. We’ll dive deeper into what the coach approach means, who can benefit and even dispel some myths about coaching. You'll leave with a clear understanding of what it takes to build coaching skills, examples of coaching success and learn why having an easily adopted model that all levels of the organization can apply and embrace is critical to coaching success. Be sure to join us. Click here to register.

Building a Coaching Culture:
Where to Start
 

The practice of creating a coaching culture within organizations, while still relatively new, is catching on and growing quickly. The reason is simple. Organizations that have implemented a coaching culture are seeing results in improved employee engagement, communication effectiveness and  improvements to the bottom line.

 

When an organization embarks on the creation of a coaching culture, one of the first questions that must be addressed is where to start. Is it in Human Resources, Organizational Development, the Senior Management team? This is a very strategic decision that should be made with full knowledge of the current culture and what works best in that context.

 

The second question that must be addressed when initiating a coaching culture is what/how that competence will be measured and supported. What level of training and/or certification will be required, who will train and develop increased coaching competency in others and how will their effectiveness be evaluated?


Join us in our next FREE webinar where we will walk through these essential questions and how to answer them for your organization.

 
  • Join our next FREE Webinar on the topic of Building a Coaching Culture: Where to Start. Wednesday, May 18 @ 11 a.m. Pacific time. We will be discussing the where and how to start when you are ready to bring a coaching culture to your organization. We will cover the essential questions to be answered and how to best answer them for your organization. You'll leave ready to cross the starting line and embark on building a coaching culture.

Using a Coach Approach to Leadership - Now More Than Ever!
 

We’ve got an emergency going on! Government, healthcare, manufacturing, education, services or non-profit are being challenged to keep up with multiple ongoing changes while also paying attention to growth. Everyone is being asked to do more with less. Most of you have seen a host of new technology and rapidly changing systems that require your business environment to be agile, innovative, responsive and adaptable. There has been a tremendous shift from algorithmic work to heuristic work. In other words, the shift from routine, repetitive measurable work, to work that involves critical thinking, analysis and creativity. Approximately 70% of current job growth in North America is in heuristic work and it is only growing. The old carrot and stick approach worked well in the old algorithmic environment but researchers have found it can be devastating in a heuristic environment. What is more effective for this environment is competency in soft skills…enter coaching. 

 
Taking a Coach Approach to Leadership means mining the very best from others by partnering with them to discover their unique motivation system and strategizing with them to work in alignment with it. Taking a coach approach also means asking others to stretch beyond their comfort zones and leveraging their strengths in a variety of areas such as change, creativity, decision making, communication and even conflict. Having people work in alignment with their unique motivation system and stretching beyond what they would ask of themselves is imperative to creating an organizational culture that is agile, innovative, responsive and adaptable. Get going in bringing a coach approach to your leadership and your organization. We are here to help you. We've designed courses and tools just for you. How can you start? Check out the options below.
  • Join our next FREE Webinar on the topic of Using A Coach Approach to Leadership. Wednesday, April [email protected] a.m. Pacific time. We will be discussing this very compelling topic.

Coaching for Sustainable Change – Moving Mountains!

Coaching for Sustainable Change –
Moving Mountains!
 

Coaching is a unique conversation that, when done well, supports the coachee into deeper discovery and new awareness.  It is a conversation designed to move the individual to tap into their own internal resources and potential to find practical strategies and solutions to specific challenges so that they can move forward AND create sustainable change.

 

 

This is why we, at Coaching Out of the Box®, put an emphasis not only on the skills and steps when coaching but on the fundamental principles and tools necessary to support coachee's in their discovery and awareness process. Over and over again we are told by participants in our coaching programs how profoundly their lives have been impacted.

 

In order to create sustainable change you need know how to:

  • Get to the root source
  • Bring awareness to areas a coachee may be blind to seeing
  • Identify resistance to change – what to listen for and questions to ask
  • Coach someone who is playing a role that no longer serves them
  • Identify what your coachee is passionate about and how to step into that

Without this work, and the courage and confidence to do it, not much will happen. Yes, there may be some immediate short term results but for long term sustainable change you have got to do the deeper dive and you’ve got to come to coaching with a mindset that will support it.

 

What is so exciting is when individuals and organizations support this kind of work mountains can be moved!  For example, we presented our qualitative results to the Institute of Coaching, Harvard Medical School and McLean Hospital recently, here were the 7 top results achieved with over 5,000 people who had learned our coaching model:

  1. Improved Listening
  2. Improved Communication
  3. Improved Ability to Give Feedback
  4. Improved Conflict Resolution
  5. Positively Impacted Relationships
  6. Improvement in Team Dynamics & Team Communication
  7. Increased Ability to Engage Staff in Conversations that are Solutions-Focused and Promote Accountability

What organization wouldn’t want to see these kind of results? 

 

We will be discussing this very compelling topic and supporting you in understanding what is required to coach for sustainable change during our next FREE Webinar on Wednesday, February 17 @ 11a.m. Pacific time/2pm Eastern time. If you are interested in moving mountains, be sure to join us.  Click Here to register!
