04 Aug 2021

How we can take a coaching approach to developing and supporting others

Learn, lead, progress

The benefits of developing a coaching approach are wide-ranging, including staff becoming more resilient and self-directive, improved staff sense of purpose, a boost in morale and motivation in others, increased productivity through skill development, and better communication and rapport across our University – all leading to an increase in engagement.

What can leaders do to embed the coaching approach? Listen to an 18 minute podcast from our L&D Toolkit which explores this: Developing a coaching culture.

Leaders as coaches can develop their knowledge and skills to influence a coaching approach from a range of learning options:

“Leaders empower individuals by building trust and coaching competence in their job roles and networking skills” Kenneth H. Blanchard “Collaboration Begins with You”
