Creating a coaching culture
TCMP will partner with you to build effective coaching and mentoring practices that will help you to create an engaging and empowering culture. We help organisations to streamline their coaching practices by clarifying the purpose and role of coaching and by reviewing the organisational climate and the effectiveness of current coaching capability. We design and deliver training and development of in house coaches and can provide a panel of experienced external coaches to support internal coaching practices.
What is a coaching culture?
You will know you have a coaching culture when:
- Personal growth, team development are integrated and aligned with organisational goals and the links between each are clearly understood;
- There are effective mechanisms for enabling organisation learning and for overcoming barriers to learning;
- People at all levels in the organisation welcome feedback, actively seek it and more importantly act on it!
- People are able to engage in constructive and positive confrontation; Time for reflection is valued;
- Coaching is seen as a joint responsibility of managers and their employees;
- Coaching is seen primarily as a positive initiative rather than as a remedial intervention;
- There are strong role models for good coaching practice across the organisation.
What can a coaching culture do for you?
The growth of both external and internal coaching has led to most organisations spending a significant amount on coaching. At its best, a coaching culture can result in big improvements in performance and employee satisfaction. At its worst, unfocussed spending with limited clarity of the desired outcome leads to executives seeing coaching as a cost rather than an investment. Poor quality of coaching and ambiguous objectives can contribute to underperformance in delivering business effectiveness, performance and results. Furthermore, it can have a negative impact on employees and the organisation’s reputation.
How we can help
We work with organisations to clarify, assess and develop their coaching culture and capability. In addition we also help organisations evaluate the effectiveness of their coaching practice and establish the return on investment (ROI) for their coaching practice. This service is delivered in 4 key stages.
Many organisations are starting to realize that they have implemented coaching in a haphazard way. We work with organisations to envision a coaching culture that will result in tangible individual and organizational transformation. Our first step is to enable the organisation to clarify where they are on the journey toward creating a coaching culture. We work with the HR/Organisational Development and the Executive Teams to agree the purpose and high level objectives of coaching and coaching culture.
Once we have a clear coaching purpose and clear objectives we work with our clients to formulate a plan that will enable them to create the required coaching culture and practices. We will work together to identify the required level of internal and external coaching and provide support in designing and delivering the required training and supervision to develop an internal panel coaches. We can offer you access to a panel of highly trained and experienced coaches to support your internal coaching panel.
Once your internal coaches are established we can assist you in the ongoing supervision and measurement of your coaching practice. We provide group or 1 to 1or team supervision for internal coaches.
TCMP understands the importance of ROI and will facilitate you to identify the standards and measures that you want in place in order to evaluate any coaching programme.
