Whether performing one-on-one coaching with workers, or corporate coaching with entire teams, our research shows that a skilled coach can reduce conflict, improve team communication and understanding, and help employees with interpersonal skills.
Coaching and mentoring builds stronger teams with a more inclusive culture, aligning the organisation's ethos with that of its employees. This creates a cohesive working environment, where employees work well together, where processes are streamlined, and collaboration between members is seamless.
An effective coach can identify the skills needed for success within a role and helps to plot a path toward developing those skills. In this way, the power of coaching and mentoring is in its ability to reinvigorate careers, keeping workers from stagnating in their positions and moving its people forward, collectively. This ultimately moves the company forward too.
Any manager will attest to the fact that there are few things as detrimental to a company as aimless employees and teams. Leaders who take a mentoring approach to managing their teams can help staff define their goals and identify the actions that will achieve those goals. Coaching empowers managers and employees to plan, execute and review actions - this translates to consistent productivity, and a sense of job satisfaction for workers.
