Mostly A’s

You report several elements of a more directive style of leadership. But did you know that between 80-90% of leadership roles require the ability to Coach which is a much less directive approach? With that insight, you can easily make small changes that will make a big difference.

The ability to use powerful and insightful questions as a manager as part of a coaching style of leadership is a key skill which can, when used appropriately, trigger massive uplifts in engagement, performance and productivity AND skyrocket your performance as a manager.

When using a coaching approach, you transform the dynamic you have with your colleagues in a way that helps them to: actively engage in what they’re doing, step up, become more creative and resourceful, take more ownership and accountability, and deliver far better outcomes.

These are results that simply can’t be achieved when you adopt a more traditional, command and control approach to leadership.

However, according to our Coaching Poll, less than a third of leaders and managers admit to using more of a coaching style of leadership and only 8% adopt coaching as their prevailing style. So you see, by taking more of a coaching approach to leadership you will soon start to push your limits, outperform your peers, and get the results you want.

So if you could benefit from improving your management game, NOW is the time to brush up on these essential skills.

Because the pandemic has brought into clear focus, the necessity for managers to be curious, agile and exceptional communicators in order to sustain high levels of employee engagement and resilience through change.

Yet, typical coaching courses won’t get you the results you need. Most coaching courses are overly theoretical and taught by trainers who struggle to make that real-life connection to the everyday challenges you face as a manager. They rely on executive coaching models that are used in very structured, private 1-to-1’s. This is a style of coaching that most busy managers just don’t have the time to undertake and which puts all of the onus on the coachees’ desire to implement change.

But what if YOU could make very small changes to the way YOU interact with your colleagues in your everyday operational life? What if you could make a huge difference ‘in the moment’ by having a coaching conversation on-the-fly? What if you could positively change the course of events in just a 30-second conversation? What if you could cultivate an environment where engagement, innovation, productivity and performance were at its highest, just by changing the way YOU behave?
