March 2022 - The Future of Coaching: Change Agent

by Coaching Out of the Box®

As the coaching community begins to embrace diversity in coaching, it will need to embrace its role as a change agent as well. “Coaching is not seen as neutral; it either supports the status quo or creates critical awareness necessary to change it”, states Charmaine Roche and Jonathan Passmore in their recent article Racial Justice, Equity and Belonging in Coaching.

In coaching, our opportunity to change the status quo is by identifying and exploring the dimensions of difference within your client. Whether these are dimensions of diversity or cultural differences, this discussion gives deeper and greater context to the client's lived experiences. In this way, the client can determine whether those differences may or may not have an impact or meaning in the context of their future life. This is embracing diversity in coaching. — Patricia A.

Coaching Tip with Helen Wale, PCC

Q: How do you feel that a coaching program can help an individual outside of work-related challenges?

A: I think having coaching skills is just really helpful in terms of making you very aware of your listening skills. You actually start to become a much better listener as a result of taking coaching training. You also become aware of people who are not very good listeners because you know what to look for and that can sometimes be a challenge in itself. You become very conscious of how you ask questions, maybe not always showing up with solutions, asking more questions to help the other person find that solution, and that sometimes can be a shift for people because they're not expecting that. I mean, I've heard stories of individuals who've taken coaching training and have gone back to the workplace and have certainly been showing up differently. They've been asking questions differently in a good way.
