Due to rapid, disruptive change, companies are realizing that leaders cannot be expected to have all the answers and that command-and-control leadership is no longer effective. Consequently, many companies are moving toward a coaching model. By asking questions and providing guidance, leaders facilitate problem solving and encourage employees’ development rather than issuing orders.
As an effective coach, a leader will create an environment in which employees are able to trust others as much as they trust themselves. In addition, they will pay equal attention to the performance of each member of their team as they do to their own.
Coaching approach is a powerful management skill that assists managers in supporting the personal development of their team members. The program assists them in solving problems, innovating at an individual and group level, spearheading change, and resolving conflicts.
