Coaching Leadership: Culture & Engagement
Hierarchical, tell-people-what-to-do type leadership structures are breaking down right across Government (Public Sector) and the Private Sector. The old leadership models where senior leaders have the knowledge and tell people what to do are rapidly changing.
Today, we need leaders who empower the people around them: leaders who’s default is to give people the outcome required and The Why, then step out of the way and let people to do their own thinking and come up with their own solutions.
When leaders keep telling people what to do, people stop thinking for themselves. People inevitably come to leaders more and more asking for solutions. Leaders become busier, even more overwhelmed crisis managers.
People stop taking personal responsibility and we see ‘its not my problem’ and ‘someone else will deal with it’ cultures. People become disengaged; performance drops. People leave and find somewhere where they have the freedom and autonomy to shine. Or worse – they stay!
Building a Coaching Leadership Culture is where leaders at all levels lead with a co-creative, ask-don’t-tell, collaborative, empowering, respectful Coaching Leadership style 65-70% of the time. This is the future of leadership. In a Coaching Leadership Culture, leaders create Collective Intelligence: intelligence that cannot exist on an individual level. As Aristotle said, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
Organisations with Coaching Leadership Culture lead the pack with the best employee engagement, most effective collaboration, communication and innovation, empowered staff, and better succession plans. They are solution focused, high performance workplaces with engaged, happy and innovative people taking responsibility for their actions.
