Imagine an organisation where performance and trust is high, conflict is minimal and people are happy and progressing – they feel that they contribute, their work has meaning and that they’re empowered to do the right thing. Your charities’ users also love what you do.
Sounds like a great place to work, doesn’t it? One of the key ingredients to this kind of culture is having great leaders who are also great coaches, and are good at delivering effective feedback. Leaders who are great coaches inspire, encourage, amplify and get the best from people. This chain reaction is pure magic to see in action – light the fuse and watch people fly!
The benefits of this kind of coaching are huge. Ultimately coaching makes a massive difference to performance and engagement. It’s a skill and talent to influence and guide others to make real breakthroughs and create lasting change.
Great coaching and feedback focuses on behaviours that benefit all, cuts through competition, fosters collaboration and helps people be their best selves.
Great coaches make things happen (despite any barriers), they inspire someone’s will, energy, creativity, courage, faith and determination — to achieve self-betterment and performance. They unleash that hidden brilliance within people.
