Coaching is significantly on the increase - most Executives these days have experienced coaching and a recent CIPD study reported that 80% of companies surveyed had implemented coaching as an effective way to develop their leaders. A growing number of companies have brought this coaching in house, training internal coaches to provide coaching support to staff. This has led to the need for coach supervision, as a means to quality assure coaches and to develop their coaching skills further. At Coach & Develop we have been approached by several clients to provide coach supervision.
EMPLOYEE WELLBEING & RESILIENCE
At Coach & Develop Ltd have been running a series of bitesize ‘Resilience’ and ‘Wellbeing’ workshops for groups of staff in a number of our client organisations. We have been incorporating elements from Positive Psychology and Mindfulness into these sessions which have been very well received, there certainly seems to be a growing appetite for this kind of development as we pay more attention to the wellbeing of staff and how it positively impacts on employee engagement. The Insights Discovery profile or DISC can also be used to create greater team insight and Lencioni's 5 Behaviours of a Cohesive Team, to build more successful teams.
WHAT EVERYONE NEEDS TO KNOW TO BE MORE PRODUCTIVE
A recurring theme for many of our clients is how to get everything we need to get done within the working hours available? With so many competing demands, we could all benefit from finding out how to ramp up our personal productivity to achieve what we need to achieve to ensure success without burnout. The following article from HBR sums up the research well. One of the keys to success is to have clarity around our priorities and boundaries so we prevent ourselves from taking on too much. Coaching can help to achieve this clarity. To read more on this use the HBR link:
