If the benefits of coaching leaders can be leveraged towards building a sustainable Coaching Culture, this is what we at EQ How refer to as the Coaching Multiplier Effect. In essence, Senior Executives, who have experienced the benefits of coaching, also develop their management teams through coaching, and those managers in turn coach their teams.
While each coaching conversation is unique, the Coaching Method is cascaded through the organization; in effect, the Senior Executive team role models the Coaching Method. With more employees benefiting from coaching, their engagement increases, leading to higher performance. The following services support building a Coaching Culture with EQ:
- Leadership Coaching for Senior Executives
- Experiential Workshop Modules (EWMs), with peer coaching activities
- EQ Assessments
Citing a recent survey of 347 leaders, the Center for Creative Leadership summarizes the following in their research paper, entitled Creating Coaching Cultures: What Business Leaders Expect and Strategies to Get There.
The surveyed leaders believed that seismic shifts in their organizations’ performance are possible if coaching is ingrained in their culture. The leaders believe that a coaching culture increases focus on developing others and managing performance; increases sharing and utilization of knowledge; leads to more participative and transparent decision-making; and makes learning and development a top priority.
