Many businesses feel quite correctly that they are not getting 100% out of their employees and in fact it is estimated that most people only bring 40% of their energy and skills to bear at work.
Coaching as a tool in an organisation’s management skills is now widely acknowledged to provide the missing stimulus. It is believed to improve performance, increase motivation and confidence, enhance leadership and decision making skills, as well as making for a more fulfilled team of people who feel valued and enjoy a more productive work life balance.
An understanding of coaching, whether through face to face experience or through training to learn how to apply its basic principles within a team, can greatly enhance inter-personal relationships in the working environment.
One company, which was having problems with managing client relationships, found coaching to be highly beneficial within the team and discovered a new sense of commitment and energy, resulting in a greatly improved bottom line.
