Coaching by managers, employees, peers, or external mentors promotes in leaders a stronger sense of shared leadership. This includes working with others across silos, collaborating to enhance organizational effectiveness, acting as custodians of company purpose, and supporting critical activities that align with that purpose.
A coaching culture emphasizes the skills of seeking and listening versus telling someone what to do. When asked for their input, peers and employees feel free to challenge and provoke thinking or offer solutions that might not have been considered. Given the chaotic and fast-changing business environment, having leaders at all levels of the organization (not just those at the very top) coaching each other can provide greater agility to solve problems across the enterprise. A coaching culture creates space for these conversations and daily coaching moments between leaders and teams, as well as between colleagues and peers.
