Telling is not coaching!
Transformational Coaching is about having your people self-evaluate their skills and application and self commit to their own development plan. This style of coaching has produced spectacular performance results by placing accountability back on to your people.
The most valuable asset in your organization is your people. Anything that helps to increase the effectiveness of your people has a huge impact on your profitability, client relationships and retention.
Transformational Coaching refers to a coaching process that enables people to create the style of thinking that promotes self-evaluation and self-motivation of performance standards. It’s an extremely powerful tool that can help staff break through impasses that prevent them from performing in their roles.
Much of the coaching going on in organisations today is about telling. The core reason for this centres on communication. If we see something that needs fixing, we are inclined to tell the person what the problem is and how to fix it. If you’ve done this in the past, you know that this approach is often met with either resistance or creates dependant behaviour.
Even if you get all the right responses, it often doesn’t result in the behavioural shift you were hoping for (superficial commitment). Why? Well the fact is we are more driven to change things if we come up with the idea ourselves!
So the role of an effective coach is to help their people self identify areas for development that are in line with the coaches’ assessment. The coach then has the person commit to a development plan that aligns with their own personal values and beliefs. It makes perfect sense doesn’t it?
