Overview

According to the latest 2020 report from the ICF (International Coaching Federation) there has been a sharp rise in the numbers of managers using coaching skills to develop and grow the talent in their teams. This is particularly important given the current climate when most teams now need to be managed remotely. The ‘push’ style of leadership is often proving ineffective. A leader who knows how to adopt a ‘pull’ approach will get far better results. This is where coaching and mentoring staff and teams will facilitate better outcomes.

Coaching and mentoring are cost effective personal development tools that can reap benefits for both the participant and the organisation, providing the coach/mentor obtains the necessary skills. It is also important that the organisation supports the approach and understands the wider benefits of improved productivity, performance and motivation that can be realised through the adoption of effective coaching and mentoring techniques.
