The Business Case for Coaching in organizations

Joseph D'Souza - Monday, April 20, 2015

Individual leaders, executives and professionals believe in the value of coaching.

The challenge typically presents itself with:

  • Do we have a culture that is brave enough to explore?
  • Can coaching have an impact on performance?
  • Do we have a budget for coaching?
  • Does coaching a investment need to come from Training, the HR  department, a departmental or divisional budget?
  • Who are the right coaches to help us?

Individuals who have invested in coaching with QuestUniquE say:

  • I never had the opportunity to reflect on my personal journey before i.e. not just role performance, rather,
    1.  to think about myself as a human being
    2. to consciously be aware of my self in the context of my family and key relationships
    3. and yes about my professional life though only as a support of 1 and 2 above
  • I can see how coaching can help others in my team
  • I can see how coaching can help the culture in this organization
  • It is amazing how the pressure of task performance overrides engaging with my colleagues as fellow human beings
  • Leading others is actually easy when you respect others
  • Coaching taught me about my own integrity and the value in others
  • My coaching journey actually enhanced my communications inside and outside the company
  • It is difficult to put into words what this coaching is doing for me - I am a different person, yet it is still me
  • Reflecting of my values, strengths, personality, emotional intelligence, and my holistic self actually gives context, meaning and purpose. Yes these are the key anchors that helped me.
  • Can you believe I discussed, shared and talked about my passions at work... and got respect for it?
  • People say I have changed - become calmer, tolerant, patient and even someone to go to!
  • I used to think I was very busy. In fact, I was well under utilized in terms of my own potential.
  • Getting feedback from the coaching mirror of reflection enables me to give others better value adding feedback
  • The experience of coaching has taught me about the art of separating the problem whilst having the conversation
  • Coaching is not a bad word associated with poor performance. Quite the contrary!
  • There is a safe environment that coaching allows where I can test my thoughts
  • Coaching allowed me to positively identify potential in others even if it means to replace me
  • Coaching taught me that  I am not in competition with others

The Institute of Executive Coaching and Leadership has provided a useful document entitled: The Business Case for Coaching:

What anchors you even as change is the norm?

Joseph D'Souza - Wednesday, July 09, 2014

"Change happens every single time a person’s expectations are disrupted both in our professional and personal lives"...."The most important skill we need to develop for the 21st century is our ability to build strong partnerships". Says Ayelet Baron. Yes we agree.

And how do we develop strong relationships? Why, by firstly a good degree of self understanding. It is in the act, the realization, the knowing, however pedestrian, however small, that we begin to adopt humility and magnanimity. If you can genuinely respect, consider and even value that others are just as entitled to their own unique perspectives, then change is nothing more than a change in perspective!

At QuestUniquE we encourage all individual, teams be in in the workplace or domestic or social life to start their journey of self understanding by considering FIVE KEY ANCHORS which extend to YOUR TRUE NORTH. It is indeed amazing how when every challenge of change is examined through these filters,that strategies for leveraging already available competencies and individual resources emerge!


A little more on The FIVE KEY ANCHORS and YOUR TRUE NORTH.
