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.

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!

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!

Questions about Coach Credentialing?

Coaching Credentials
 
Coach Credentialing - Our Perspective
 

At Coaching Out of the Box® we get questions about this almost every day. Why get credentialed?  How do I get credentialed?  What course should I take? I want to use a coach approach in leading and working with others, do I need to hold a credential?

 

Let's start by expressing our bias.  We believe EVERYONE needs these critical coaching skills but NOT EVERYONE needs to be credentialed.

 

Here is the difference between being credentialed and using a coach approach:

  • Credentialed means a person has completed a series of requirements to obtain a coaching certification, i.e. completion of approved coach specific training hours, exam process, proof of coaching competency and hours of coaching experience, plus they are agreeing to adhere to specific Ethics and Standards.
  • Coach Approach means they are using coaching skills as part of the way they lead and work with others.  Many organizations are ensuring their leaders and managers are learning key coaching skills as part of their leadership development.

At Coaching Out of the Box® we have supported over 13,000 people in benefiting from learning how to be coach-like and use a coach approach in the work they do. However, our programs are designed to support either, as we also provide coach specific training credits that can be used towards obtaining a coaching credential. 

 

Another great resource for credentialing questions is coaching associations. One of the largest professional coaching associations is the International Coach Federation, which began in 1992. Their membership is growing around the world by an average of 500+ members a month and exceeds 20,000 people in over 100 countries.

 

ICF created Core Competencies, a Code of Ethics, and defined curriculum standards (accreditation), to ensure consistency in coach training. They also developed an ICF Credentialing system, requiring renewal every three years. A number of coaches who have been part of the creation and growth of Coaching Out of the Box® have played significant roles with the ICF. To learn more about the key requirements to obtain an ICF credential click here.

 

To support you in understanding what is right for you we will be holding a FREE Webinar on Coach Credentialing on Wednesday, January 13 at 11a.m. Pacific /2pm Eastern. If you have any questions on this subject please make sure you join us. CLICK HERE to register!

Changing Corporate Culture: Are You Ready?

Are You Ready
 
Changing Corporate Culture: Are You Ready?
Article by: Bruce McLeod
 

The recognition of coaching as a competency that delivers bottom line business value is a current and exciting reality. One of the natural iterations of this growth can be found in the increasing amount of work being done in the area of tying  coaching to corporate culture.  High performing organizations know that, in order to remain competitive and/or relevant in a sustainable way, they MUST pay deliberate attention to their respective culture. Building a “culture by design” rather than accepting a “culture by default” is what high performing organizations are all about. The emergence of creating coaching cultures, albeit a relatively new concept, is growing in popularity at a breakneck pace. The reason – it makes a real difference to engagement, communication effectiveness and ultimately to the bottom line. 

 

When we consider building a culture by design, we are really speaking of the way the organization is “being” – it is the how we do things, more so than what we do. One of the common pitfalls organizations make is believing that lots of coaching activity will equal a coaching culture. Nothing could be further from the truth. This is the approach that leads to the “flavor of the month” mentality that many of us have experienced. Coaching activity on its own is all about the “what”. In order to engage the “being” element required to create a culture, we must engage emotion, motivation, and purpose. To do so goes well beyond simply providing skill training.

 

The first, in this authors opinion, on this journey is to assess the readiness of the organization to embark on this large scale change management initiative.  Readiness includes an examination of the current culture, the leadership, the capacity, the systems, etc... It requires a holistic look at the organization in order to determine which elements are aligned for the change and which ones need some work. This is the basis from which organizations must start. Organizations would never consider implementing a new management information system without considerable investment, up front, as to their readiness – it is the due diligence required to maximize the likelihood of success. It should be no less important when considering the resources to be expended on changing a culture.

 

Want to learn more about changing the culture where you currently work? Join Bruce McLeod, our Chief Culture Officer and Alison Hendren, CEO and Founder of Coaching Out of the Box® for “Changing Corporate Culture: Are You Ready?” a FREE  1-hour teleconference on Wednesday, December [email protected] Pacific time/2pm Eastern time.  We will be covering the 5 key components that will guarantee your success.  For more information or to reserve your seat click here.

 

 
 
 
Readiness Assessment

 

At Coaching Out of the Box® we are committed to our clients success. This means more than simply delivering and supporting our high quality training.

 

It all starts with a conversation about your organizations readiness for coaching. We help you to make that assessment and partner with you to ensure coaching will be a long-term sustainable part of your culture. We have worked with organizations around the world and have seen first hand the essential elements for success, and the many pitfalls to avoid.

 

Our Coaching Readiness Assessment for Organizations™ is the beginning of the journey. It starts with maximizing the conditions for success and ends with using our CQ to measure the impact it is having.
