Enhancing business performance through corporate coaching
Wherever you are reading this, stop and ask yourself "in a business context what are the things I value most?" Notice what pops up. Then ask yourself "how do I ensure that I get what I need and value most" and "how does what I value get replenished, nurtured and kept at peak performance?"
Staying resourceful, purposeful and motivated is key to top performance. All my experience shows the on-going development of human potential is critical to business success. Ask any successful executive whether it would be helpful to be in a more resourceful state when making key decisions and the answer is always a resounding yes!
The difference that makes the difference: incremental performance
In today's fast moving and complex global world, coaching is increasingly the vehicle by which it becomes possible to get incremental performance out of top people. It's like servicing a car. Top performance results from properly focused attention and investment.

Executive and performance coaching is no longer just the preserve of those who have a seat at the boardroom table or are in the echelons of senior management. More and more companies are turning to coaching to complement the overall development of the individual. After all, it's individuals that create excellence. This approach allows space for conventional technical skill based training as well as a focus on individual issues that enhance performance. And the payoffs are significant.
Frequently I find myself asked about what corporate coaching is and how it helps organisations. So, let's get clear about what we're talking about before looking at why some companies are taking executive coaching even further and adopting it as a corporate management style.

What is corporate coaching?
Corporate coaching is about shifting the workplace horizon from one where people receive direction from others to one where people commit to doing things they care passionately about. The process encourages the development of personal leadership and responsibility throughout the organisation.

How does coaching help organisations?
Organisations are made up of individuals. Coaching is a collaborative process focusing on the developmental of the individual. It involves a relationship rooted in mutual respect and rapport. It is anchored in constructive, respectful language and endorses rather than diminishes people's skills and abilities. It assists individuals and teams to focus on possibilities and eliminate limitations. It helps people overcome obstacles to their success, including their attitudes, beliefs and behaviours. Perhaps even more importantly it provides a model for giving and receiving constructive feedback.

How does coaching as a management style affect corporate culture?
The results are astounding. Often old directive styles of management give way to a more coaching and commitment based culture. Hierarchy soon gives way to support, blame gives way to honest evaluation, external motivators are replaced by self-motivation, protective barriers fall as teams build, change is no longer feared but welcomed and satisfying the boss becomes pleasing the customer. Indeed coaching as a management style focuses on the future, on what is possible, encouraging multi-level decision-making and evolutionary learning. What emerges is an organisational culture defined by commitment, one in which creativity and innovation is encouraged. Leaders support, inform and influence, resulting in performance being measured against shared goals with strong personal commitment by organisational members. In summary, the culture encourages greater flexibility and adaptability to change - a key corporate attribute in today's environment.

What are the benefits of corporate coaching?
Applicable in all areas of the business, both with individuals and teams, coaching uses common language everyone can relate to. It places emphasis on the unique potential of individuals to maximise their own performance, putting focus around future possibilities. As such, it fosters entrepreneurial thinking, develops flexibility and gains commitment to individual development. It also greatly enhances communication with internal and external customers, often transforming relationships. All this contributes towards building a common platform for organisational evolution and a strong corporate culture.
