The opportunity for coaching occurs at every level throughout an organization. Employees move through roles and responsibilities that change from a narrow focus to leadership roles where process, task and people skills are required, to senior level roles with a focus on communication, influencing and strategic thinking. No individual has well developed skills in all areas upon assuming a new job and a good coach will identify areas for development and provide support and follow up in a consistent manner.
We can all become effective coaches and help our organization develop a coaching culture. It's good for our employees, good for us and good for the organization as a whole.
