How effective are you as a coach to your employees?
One factor that can positively or negatively impact employees’ engagement is their relationship with their direct manager. The collection of relationships employees have with management also plays a role in shaping corporate culture as well.
Corporate culture is not a mystical element. Culture is collectively defined by managers’ and employees’ thinking, which then influences the kinds of attitudes and behaviours that are accepted or rejected within an organization.
Managers who commit to develop and practice their coaching skills can contribute to creating a coaching culture that fosters learning and growing. Some by-products of a coaching culture are improved employee engagement, trust and results.
This microskill of coaching focuses on what a leader can do to promote a coaching culture with their employees.
