Creating A Coaching Culture

  1. 1. Creating A Coaching Culture<br />Presented by: Sales Progress<br />
  2. 2. Managing IS NOT Coaching<br />A true coach drives performance for individual employees as well as employee teams, while a manager is often content with sustaining the status quo. <br />Coaching can be described as the ability of the leader to inspire and motivate employees to improve knowledge, increase skill levels, and alter behavior to be more positive<br />
  3. 3. There is Some Gray Area<br />
  4. 4. Example<br />If an employee is continuously late for work… reprimanding them is probably a management issue. <br />There is not really a performance issue to be addressed per se. <br />An employee who constantly misses deadlines may be lacking time management skills. <br />This is a performance-based issue in need of coaching. <br />
  5. 5. Management Often Struggle to Coach<br />Two main issues:<br />It’s easier and quicker to just dictate to employees and not engage.<br />Managers have a fear of coaching. <br />Both are poor excuses<br />
  6. 6. Why Coach?<br />Increases employee retention. <br />Allows a manager to get a close up look at employee’s work and solve real world challenges.<br />Builds coaches within all leadership circles. The more coaches an organization has the more “performance improving” employees they will have.<br />A successful business requires employees to constantly be getting better. Organizations who are not coaching do not have this competitive edge.<br />Employees will naturally become more open to change and challenges. <br />
  7. 7. Research Supporting the Need For Coaching<br />When managers are used to reinforce training using tactics such as coaching, retention increases by up to 63%.<br />(Ventana Research)<br />CSO Insights shows that almost 50% of all sales people do not hit their sales quotas.<br />
  8. 8. The keys to successful coaching <br />Create an understanding of the desired performance improvements. <br />For the entire team, just the individual, or both.<br />Structure a program that is consistently scheduled, and acted upon. Planning with out action is useless<br />Coaching must inherently promote the simulation or practice of the desired performance. Skills will not magically improve by talking about them. <br />The coach asks questions versus telling employees what they need to do. <br />The coach MUST recognize and reward effort. <br />
  9. 9. 4 Areas Where People Need Coaching<br />Knowledge: To know or understand. Examples could be internal processes, product knowledge, technical attributes, etc.<br />Skills: To be able to perform a desired expertise. A skill could be active listening, closing for sales people, negotiating, etc.<br />Behavioral: To execute a task consistently without fear or anxiety. Examples of behavioral could be fear of making cold calls, anxiety associated with asking for the order, knowing you struggle with active listening, etc.<br />Creative: To solve or address situations in non-traditional ways.<br />
  10. 10. Key Attributes to A Successful Coaching Culture<br />The management team must cooperatively and consistently drive performance using the same methods and techniques through out the organization. <br />Employees feel challenged and inspired for personal development, career growth, and continuous pursuit of helping the organization’s bottom line.<br />Coaching is not viewed as a task to be completed but rather as a unique opportunity. <br />All coaching and training leverages “real world” issues and solutions.<br />
