In the fifth blog of my “When to Build a Coaching Culture Series”, I discuss where to start when build a coaching culture.
If you are an individual leader, you can only start with yourself. So, start there when building a coaching culture.
Start asking rather than telling now.
If you are responsible for developing leaders, start anywhere. Don’t overthink your experimentation. Find three leaders who are willing to learn. In my experience, there are many, many leaders who would love to learn how to develop their people to make more decisions for themselves and to transition faster through change. Offer them this great opportunity to be part of a pilot.
If you are wondering where to find the coach, you have one right here, willing and able to work with you in this experiment. I’ve done this before, so I know what works, and the pitfalls to avoid.
What are you waiting for?
I know, I know, you probably need some kind of sign-off to commission an external coach, but you can make that happen! Every organisation is different, so I won’t presume to give you advice in this forum about the best way to get that sign-off, but I could coach you through it, asking you questions that help you to decide on a way forward and deal with your own doubts about making a change.
