“I never cease to be amazed at the power of the coaching process to draw out the skills or talent that was previously hidden within an individual, and which invariably finds a way to solve a problem previously thought unsolvable.” John Russell
The best leaders exemplify the qualities of a great coach. I have witnessed countless times the power of extraordinary coaching skills, used to help employees that were stuck in a problem, possibly lacked confidence, or just not stretching themselves far enough. Leaders who are able to incorporate coaching skills into their leadership practices, enable their teams to be more effective, more productive, more engaged, and see higher rates of employee retention.
Developing effective coaching skills takes time and practice. Leaders who apply coaching are able to foster self-reliant problem solving among their team members and increase collaboration. Coaching enables leaders to balance direction and support to help their team members develop skills and confidence.
