Creating a Coaching Culture for Your Organization

Wednesday, June 17

Dr. Erroline Williams, PCC

Jane Rahenkamp, PCC

 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
CCEs: 1.5 (1.0 core/.5 resource)

Over the last 20 years, an unprecedented growth has been noticed in the introduction of coaching into organizations, in both for-profit and non-profit.  The International Coach Federation produces reports and measurements proving that coaching is a critical component for employee growth. Positive effects of coaching include that it leads to increased skills in managing complexity, pressure, and stress, redirection of derailing behavior in leaders and managers more productive teams; increased engagement; smoother organizational transitions; and bottom-line improvement.  While coaching has become more common and a valuable component in organizations, it’s important to define the differences and variables of both internal coaching and external coaching.

There is a great variety in the way that coaching looks, on a continuum, within an organization, for example, one end of the coaching continuum is executive or leadership coaching. Within the middle of the continuum includes manager as the coach, and finally, at the far end, self-coaching wherein an individual facilitates their own process to coach themselves.  No matter the approach, coaching remains an invaluable approach to ensure the growth and development of the employee.

Within an experiential and didactic framework, workshop participants will:

  • Discover the value of creating a coaching culture
  • Learn the components of instituting the coaching culture
  • Identify the need for internal or external coaches for the organization
  • Acquire the essential skills of internal coach training
  • Explore case studies of successful coaching in an organization
