What David Rock Talks About:
Turning Managers Into Coaches
Managers today have more pressure than ever to get results from their teams, and yet often they are promoted through job specific expertise: they know how to get the job done, but they may not have the people and management skills to match. In the workplace, managers that truly have effective coaching skills produce significantly better results. People do better work, for longer, and contribute to the organization in many more ways.
The benefits of developing a coaching culture in the workplace include:
- A focus on solutions not problems
- People are inspired to achieve their best
- Communication channels opening up
- Reduced conflict between staff / Increased staff retention
- Better results delivered with less effort
