14 Jun Invest in the future of your team by making time to improve your coaching skills
The future of your business depends on the skills you invest in the performance of your team, and it’s your job as a business owner or leader to develop your team so that they grow, improve and enhance the performance of your business.
But – if you were to invest and mention the word ‘coaching’ in your business, how would your team react?
I am sure you have team member who is keen to learn new things, to grow and develop, and they would see coaching as an opportunity to improve and progress within your business.
I am also sure you have team members who are less enamoured with learning new things and who are happy to stay as they are and to do things the way they have always been done.
But the development of your team is a pipe dream unless you make time to first develop your own coaching skills.
You probably think that this is a time-consuming, mammoth task…
Not true – all it takes is the improvement, with a little learning and structure, of a few coaching skills, skills you are probably already using within your business without even realising.
And you should not underestimate the impact of coaching on your team as it frequently creates a fundamental shift in their approach to their own work.
The global survey company, Gallup, has conducted in excess of 2.7 million employee surveys across more than 50 diverse industries.
Gallup’s study is just one of many that categorically shows how the engagement of your team in the work that they do profoundly impacts the results your business achieves.
The Gallup survey shows that high-engagement businesses make
23% more profit than those with low employee engagement.
Worth investing in, don’t you think?
