Performance Development

How well do you use the “coaching” style of leadership?

“How do modern organizations respond to the pressures for higher and higher levels of performance with employees that are more tired by the day?” Thomas Crane asks in his book The Heart of Coaching .

He responds to this question with, “Progressive leaders are choosing coaching as a fundamental part of their response. Coaching is a healthy, positive, enabling process that develops the capacity of people to solve today’s business problems. As coaching becomes a predominant cultural practice, it will create a performance-focused, feedback-rich organization capable of creating and sustaining a competitive advantage.”

Leaders must have skills to support the growth and development of others. Coaching requires a shift in thinking from being the manager/decision-maker/delegator to being the leader/facilitator/servant/visionary. Coaching requires skill in contextual listening and powerful questioning.
