In today’s business environment where every company is frantically trying to figure out their next pathway to a more profitable relationship with their customers the pace of change has increased. The pressure that people are feeling in the workplace is intense. Doing more with less is the new normal and job descriptions seem like something from an antiquated past.
Organizational Culture is defined by the worst behaviors that are allowed to exist. When those worst behaviors are being perpetrated by the most senior executives in an organization it is all the more problematic. Usually these behaviors come from old mindsets, outworn beliefs and modes of thinking that just don’t work in today’s challenging environment.
Initiating a coaching program in the workplace where leaders can learn to gain calm while amping up clarity is more than a good idea. Today’s organizations need leaders who use both hard and soft skills to improve results in three critical areas:
- Building Relationships and Trust
- Increasing Resilience and Innovation
- Engaging Hearts and Minds through chosen Accountability
Organizations that implement leadership development through individual coaching will be more productive. Leaders who want to move from being the victim or the villain to the hero need support in order to make the transformation successfully.
