Leaders As Coaches

How do you develop a team that is self-reliant? We found often that we would train people at the front end with behaviour and skill development however it would not translate into sustainable change back at work. We wondered, why? Reason was - a gap between the knowing and the doing. Our work on creating Leaders as Coaches addresses that gap.

Research showed us it was because - once the team member goes back to work their managers who had not been trained on the new skills would not be supportive of this change. The manager who is often a big influence and role model was not included in this learning journey. No change can happen unless the manager also participates in the learning goal. And a big change can happen rapidly when the Manager transitions into Leading as a Coach. The Manager then defines the objectives and owns the outcome. 


Many Leaders are in their roles  by virtue of their  tenor of service and subject matter expertise in specific areas. Therefore, a  Leader is expected to be directive, a problem solver  and guide the team in all their functional activities. However now there has been a major shift in Leadership style and approach. Organizations are moving away from command, control to autonomy and collaborative approach like a coaching partner. 

The idea was not to make managers into full-time Coaches. The objective was to add Coaching as an arsenal in a Leader’s toolbox. Our Flagship program Leaders As Coaches equips Leaders with the skills to lead as a Coach.
