22 Agenda The evolution of coaching - a brief historical overview Developing coaching cultures

23 Beginnings - 90’s Individual coaching based on Inner Game and GROW model Executive coaching becoming popular ‘White coats’, 'Suits’, OD practitioners and elite Sports people 4 business coaching books

24 The ‘Wild West’ – no barriers Creative, innovative, exciting period Melting pot of approaches Everyone has a coaching model Academia waiting in the wings – might this turn into something?

25 Issues around quality lead to professionalization of coaching
Evolving 2000 > Supply grows Issues around quality lead to professionalization of coaching Expansion of coaching qualification and accreditation programmes Over 100 coaching books by end of decade

26 Demand grows as coaching takes off in most sectors
Evolving 2000 > Demand grows as coaching takes off in most sectors Manager-as-coach training 1-1s and regular feedback become the norm Growing interest and experimentation with team coaching and coaching cultures

27 Maturing 2010 >> Anytime, in-the-moment, coaching Coaching as a mindset rather than an activity Honest, quality conversations – ‘Are we having the right conversation at the right depth between the right people, right now’? Evolving methodologies for team coaching and developing coaching cultures

28 We’ve been overly focused on horizontal learning and development
The re-emerging proposition Successful OD transformation is dependent on team and personal transformation We’ve been overly focused on horizontal learning and development We need to balance this with effective vertical learning and development


30 Some of my own learning about developing coaching cultures

31 Start by understanding what it is and it isn’t
An executive briefing or management conference is a good place to start Undertake coach training together to develop the necessary coaching skillsets and mindset

32 Start by understanding what it is and it isn’t
An executive briefing or management conference is a good place to start Undertake coach training together to develop the necessary coaching skillsets and mindset Useful to include: the focus of coaching, the strategic use of coaching and current thinking about different types of coaching conversations


34 The strategic use of coaching
Performance improvement Support and development for current leaders Talent development – future leaders 1 2 3 Building and sustaining high performance teams Developing coaching cultures 4 5

35 Different types of coaching conversations
Planned 1-1s Developmental Coaching Anytime Coaching Different types of coaching conversations

36 In coaching cultures, people know what they’re working on from processes such as …
Appraisals 360 feedback processes Assessment/Development Centres Leadership programmes Team development 1-1 coaching Developmental Coaching

37 Anytime Coaching The ‘anytime coach’ views each interaction
as an opportunity for coaching-in-the-moment for micro improvements that, when multiplied over many interactions and many employees, produces desired improvements in organisational performance Anytime Coaching

38 Hold the strategic conversation
Identify what you want from a coaching culture and how it can support your strategic objectives Consider making it a strategic objective in its own right

39 What organisations are getting from this investment
‘A great place to work’ showing up as high employee engagement, job satisfaction and morale Attract and retain talent Grow leadership capacity Increased collaboration and higher levels of trust More effective teamwork Greater openness to learning

40 Leadership team development
Commit to a programme of team coaching and development to develop as a high performing team Be realistic about what this involves – an occasional Away-Day is fine for strategic planning but not as the vehicle for team coaching

41 High performance teams - the platform for success
Compelling team purpose Effective strategies (gameplan) Common working approach Efficient meetings and communication processes

42 High performance teams - creating the team climate
Effective team leadership Relationships Behaviours and group norms Communication Trust Team dynamics Conflict resolution

43 Cascade team development
A coaching inspired team leader together with coaching-minded team members committed to developing the team can transform team performance

44 Individual development
Commit to individual development through leadership programmes and 1-1 coaching Assist people to know what their strengths are and what they need to work on

45 Engage the wider organisation
Agree how to engage the wider organisation congruently Hold a facilitated large group event to share the rationale and intention of creating a coaching culture Seek input into the key challenges and opportunities

46 Develop coaching capability
Deliver quality coach training to a critical mass of the organisation to achieve a tipping point where coaching behaviours become the norm

47 The self awareness journey
Coach training needs to be more than skill acquisition. It needs to grounded in the raising of self awareness and impact on others

48 Develop internal HR and OD coaching capability
Train specialist coaches to coach offline Consider specialist coaching appointments

49 Monitor that coaching is becoming the norm
Regularly communicate the leadership expectation around coaching

50 Agree who is responsible for reviewing and evaluating the results
Return on investment Agree who is responsible for reviewing and evaluating the results Gather success stories and conduct structured interviews to discover the tangible and intangible gains

51 Common mistakes made by organisations
Senior leaders opting out of the process Not making it a strategic priority Treating the coaching culture process as a training exercise Delegating it to HR or outsourcing it to external training providers

52 Coaching produces numerous benefits
It typically leads to a greater openness to learning and improvement, higher levels of self awareness and emotional maturity

53 Coaching produces numerous benefits
Coaching encourages people to listen better, reflect more, and think about their own behaviours

54 Coaching produces numerous benefits
Team leaders make better contact with people, become more adept at running meetings and become more effective change agents

55 Time is used more productively
Coaching produces numerous benefits That most precious of resources … Time is used more productively

56 Closing thought Can we now make as much progress in the quality and depth of our conversations, and in the way we treat each other, as we have made in technology?
